It's not really. Some years ago I had one installed in my Audi TT which has a highly curved roof in both planes. No leaks ever. Cost me $300 at the time including install.gawd that would be awfully expensive I'm sure and I don't think I would trust it from leaks.
Hey Starbai,I plan on getting a Webasto one installed in my 5.0 in a few weeks.
I'll definitely post up some opinions thoughts on it.
I was quoted $1,500 installed. Lifetime warranty against leaks and parts.
Anyway, it'll be the same one as on the Tjin Mustang:
My Prelude was like that, it was a 4th gen, and it had a moon roof but wasn't glass.. it was solid metal.. it'd open but otherwise no light comes through when closed.I have no interest whatsoever in a glass roof, but I'm really tempted by one of these... what I'd really like to get is a moonroof, like my last car had. No glass, just a metal panel that tilts and slides back.
Having bought my car at the beginning of December, I haven't had a chance to do a lot of open-window driving yet, but it struck me when I did give it a go that air tends to get caught in the back-seat / shelf area and swirl around pretty strongly when you're going at speed with the windows down. A tilted open sunroof tends to mitigate that.
Please keep us updated and include a lot of pictures. My father lives in the Ft. Lauderdale area so I could use this as an excuse for a road trip.Going in next Tuesday or Wednesday!

Please let us know why you chose signature over Webasto.I been doing A LOT of research on these and I am gonna have to disagree on webasto. Not that it's a bad roof. But if ur still researching and want some reasoning let me know. If not it's ok. Ultimately the webasto will likely be just fine.
I'm actually taking it to Classic Soft Trim.Please keep us updated and include a lot of pictures. My father lives in the Ft. Lauderdale area so I could use this as an excuse for a road trip.
1st. I'll admit that three company name changes in the last decade or two kinda bothered me. I did do my research on ALL three names though and I haven't found a any substantial negative reviews on them. Nothing about mechanical failures, nothing about leaks or anything like that.Please let us know why you chose signature over Webasto.
