July 1, 2007Does anyone have a panoramic roof section? I was wondering what they are like to keep up, how much they cost, are you always fighting water spots, does it get hot inside the car.....
July 4, 2007Are you talking about the GlassBack? If so, I checked into it about 6 months ago and it was $3500 installed. But you have to be lucky enough to have an installer that is close to you. I'm sure the glass is tinted, so I'm sure it won't get much hotter than normal.
July 4, 2007A few stangs had them at a car show I went to.
They all said heat was not a problem.
Did not ask about spots.
July 4, 2007Aren't water spots usually more of a problem on painted surfaces than glass? My windshield has held up great (on all my cars) even though I sometimes have to battle spots on the paint.
The popular opinion on the '50's Crown Vics with the glass roof was that they must get hot inside - it wasn't true (they were tinted green, and heat wasn't a big deal). But, it kept sales really low, and so the option was discontinued. Or so I heard...
I wouldn't worry about heat, especially if the roof is tinted.
