My gangsta pimp-wagon has just gone back to the Ferarri dealrship to have the defective sunroof sorted... Apparently the motor is buggered and has damaged all the cables.. The whole shooting match has to be replaced...
...Luckily most of it is covered under warranty although the cables are not. The nice chaps at Meridien are paying for one of the cables if I pay for the other (about £73 each for the cables)
Has anyone else had a problem with the sunroof in their GTV??? Apparently sunroofs are quite rare,, is this true?
I'm 6'2" and I have a sunroof on my GTV. Had to have the seat lowered a little but I fit in it OK. I think GTVs with sunroofs are only rare in the UK. Probably because it pi55es it down every other day... Fair enough then.
Its always puzzled me why we would want to stick a dirty great hole in a perfectly good roof and then have to worry about sealing it, especially with our climate/weather. Just what is it about sun roofs?
I had a sunroof on my old GTV and yes the motor went on it, it would only tilt and not slide ...and yes it does restrict headroom quite a bit, bags of headroom in a GTV without a sunroof and I'm 6'3", and that's without lowering the seats!
I dont get this idea that there is no headroom in the gtv. Theres loads, it just doesnt feel like there is much as the cabin is very cocooned and the windscreen is quite small. It merely gives the impression of having a low roof. Anyway, quit ya *****in, you dont buy a gtv and whinge about the low roof. Thats something a girl would say. And something about the colour no doubt.
I've never actually seen a GTV with a sunroof - here in Australia they all get fitted by the dealer on request, and a number of them have said that it reduces the stiffness and makes the car look like ***** (because it apparently tilts up and doesn't slide). Seeing as it's going to cost me an extra $A2000 to put one in I'm thinking of passing on it and just getting the 17" wheels. I have a sunroof on my Integra now and I hardly ever use it - it's too bloody hot in summer here!!
Does anyone have a pic of a GTV with a sunroof? I wouldn't mind having a look.
