way to ricey for my taste too, but i thought the sunroof was pretty sweet.. i think it would look much better if it was much bigger.

adding targa top/sunroof on a Z ruins the rigidity...so why do it?

It's probably not easy, but you could gain some of that rigidity back with some new supports. I'd love a targa top

webasto is the way to go for sure. i wanna say ive read you can get product, install and warranty for 1k. not bad imo. also webasto comes factory in most(if not all) gm vehicles with sunroof.

A friend of mine bought an 05 PPW grand touring that had a sunroof installed. His looks good, but the one in the OP looks very poorly executed.

He should of had the roof painted black. It would have flowed and looked a lot better!

+1 for Targa top. I would trade my Nismo in for a new Z with a factory Targa.

When I got my '05 350z a couple of months ago, we kept our '87 300zx because we'd miss the t-tops.
