it never rains here so always!
when i was looking for my GS i passed up many good ones coz they didnt have a 'Moon roof' lol. I love it and any luxury car should have one.
best thing about it is at night when you recline ur seat and look at the stars with your girl. ok that sounds abit gay lol

When I had the SC, mine was always open. Now that I've got the Trans Am with T-Tops, I don't take them off quite as much, just because it takes longer & I can't do it without stopping (usually...), but it does have a much more open feel. I just wish spring/fall lasted longer here.

If the weather is 70+ I keep it up, I tend to not leave it open cause there might be some douchebags littering my car with trash through the sunroof

I actually had to think about this.. Not really sure what i would do if i had the option. when you don't have a sunroof you want one and when you do have one you could live without it...

Open when it isn't raining. But I do live in Seattle so it is closed the majority of the time.

When I bought my IS300 at Torrance Lexus, I asked if I could get a car WITHOUT a sunroof, inasmuch as Lexus advertised the roof as an "option" for the 2001 car.

The salesman found ONE car on the entire West Coast, and that was over at Longo, so I went and looked at it. It was white, which wasn't my favorite color but I probably could have lived with it, but the car had mechanical seats, not power, and I think the windows were non-power, but I'm not sure I remember that accurately. It wasn't close to what I wanted, so I bought a silver car at Torrance.

I've had the roof open TWICE in 10+ years, one time to check to see if it worked, and one time when a lady friend insisted that I open it. I hate the roof for about 6-8 different reasons, and I won't buy another Lexus with a roof.

I've been very happy with the IS in 60,000 miles, and I would buy a new Lexus in a minute if they had one without the humongous hole in the roof, but not until then. Next car probably will be a Sub or an Evo, and I'll go out and lay on the beach when I want a sunburn or a moontan. Ralph L. Seifer, Long Beach, California.

I use mine sometimes...usually in "tilt" mode. I'll open it if it's a nice day out and I'm at the beach!

As far as what it implies of a person's image, I think it holds no bearing whatsoever on who you are. But then again, I'm older and probably out of the loop when it comes to that!

I love my sunroof. If it's lovely outside, I open the whole thing up. Or if it's just warm inside, I tilt it open.
