Thinking of getting my daughter a Mini with a sunroof, because the car will always be parked outside i'm just interested to know how they hold up out in the elements: ie water leaks and drainage. Thanks for any imput

I'm active on several Mini forums and I've read several times about the glass exploding (shattering) in very hot conditions. Mini is probably the only car I wouldn't order a sun roof, especially living here in Arizona.

I think they are fairly good at keeping out the weather, just dont expect to be able to open it ever, many have had terrible problems with there operation, so much so I didnt have one fitted to mine even though I could have had a better deal with one at the time.
Either get a soft top or open the windows and put the air con on.
