Default sunroof for my 08 prius

just picked up a new 08 model .... i love everything about it but really miss not having a sunroof ...i've had one in all my other vehicles ( MDX, Montero , volvos ,,,) ...anybody have any suggestions ,, the manager at the dealer in brooklyn said no problem about putting one in but when he went to ask 2-3 knowledgeable people , they all said no way .... i'm assuming gas consumption would suffer slightly but willing to live with that ...any ideas?

Rickey will give you an answer. But there is no cheap way of doing it correctly. Check back in the threads as there was one done on the "cheepo" not too long ago. You will get a hit on milage (which is the reason you probably purchased the car) and if you take a good look at your "roof-line" you will see that the normal sun-roof installer will have a "challange." That "groove" was put in for aero-dynamics and was designed in a wind tunnel to eliminate a lot of "drag."
Toyota knows about the sellability of "sun-roofs" and they haven't fooled with the Prius line in the four years this model has been manufactured. Has to be a darn good reason!

Great Post! ...... and it does end up with a March 10th "latest."
Two grand for one that looks like "factory" and $470.00 for a "cheepo" that would work on a 70,000 mile car you are getting "bored with."
