View Poll Results: Do you have a sunroof on your RX8?
I'd like to have one, "sports car" or not... but then I wouldn't fit :D

oh yes, a sunroof for me is almost as necessary as the stereo!!
also, i like the way the wind deflectors look, but how much of the open space does it cover with the roof open? im curious bc the roof doesnt seem to open that far as it is. or can the deflector be positioned far enough towards the front of the car where it doesnt block the roof? sorry if im getting off the subject.

definitely sunroof...i'd love convertible but too impractical for me...anyways, the 8 isn't a "REAL" sports car anyway, it's a luxury/sports car more like the G35...so i have the sunroof, automatic leather seats, and navigation
No sun roof here. My last car was a Miata so I have sunroof/convertible burnout (tired of the road noise, rattles, and occasional leaks) I'm sure I'll go back to a car with a sunroof/convertible top with my next car.

With the wind deflector, I admit I am disappointed in the amount of size you get with this roof. Barely enough to even stick your head out. I guess I got used to my previous car, which had a huge removable sunroof, that was over twice this size. It is better then nothing though, but very small.
no sunroof here. I intend to keep the 8 and turn it into a sports car at some point. Sunroofs make a car less rigid and will be another thing that breaks down in 10-15 years. The 8 might not come stock as a sports car but soon It will show it's true colours when prepped for race and the extra headroom for my helmet is needed. :D
All our cars have (or had) sunroofs or were convertible.
An absolute must.

Sirius Satellite Radio. Automatic - I know - some people say I should have bought the manual, but my wife likes me to have a free hand when I drive (wink, wink, nudge nudge).
A definite MUST. I love the sunroof... it makes the car that much more enjoyable on the sunny days. And even if I don't want the associated air/noise I can pull the shade back and get more light in the cabin.
- cleaner looking
- one less thing to malfunction
- one less thing to leak
- more headroom
but the main reason why i got my 8 w/o the sunroof is b/c it's gonna be what people want 10 years down the line. i'm coming from the MR2 community and to find a hardtop turbo model is like a diamond in the rough. same with the supra guys. but then again, both of those cars were either targa or t-tops. i guess we'll have to see what it's like in the future!!!
