Default How Often Do You Use Your Sunroof?

Kinda a random question, but at my highschool, sunroof open = u are super rich w/ a benz. A Ricer blasting music. poser. etc....
I use my sunroof in tilt mode often (even though it doesn't really have a use) and just wanted to know other's opinions on its use vs. a person's image.

I truly wish they, most makers including Lexus, didn't package these damned things with more useful options like HID lights. Burns me to have to pay $1000 or more extra for a hole in my car's roof.

Almost never. First of all, half of my head is under the roof & half under the opening. So half of my hair gets blown around, along with the accompanying change in temperature, etc. Second, the sun usually seems to bother my eyes if the sunroof is open. To be honest, if I do use it, it is more likely to be at night! I'm also addicted to A/C. I hate humidity. I think I need to move to SoCal. In Wisconsin, I turn on the air conditioning the same week we stop using heat. So, it's the same in my car. Climate control is set to AUTO year-round, all windows rolled up.

On those hot summer days, I open it to let the built-up heat out. Mostly tilt though. What I don't like is after it's been opened, is finding that just right spot to slide the shade so that it doesn't rattle.

I have it but rarely use it.

Part of my issue is that my XM Radio Antenna (you need it down here to signals in Mexico City) sits on the handle as such (so no reason to open the sunroof).

I think I can count on one hand how many times I used the sunroof. That mirror rattle/vibration when opened makes it almost impossible to use.

The only thing that stops me from using it is if Its raining. Other then that its always open no metter how hot, cold, or whos rideing with me. Its a rule when you get in my car, If you don't like it shut up or get out!

All the time ... only closed during severe weather conditions

Also, like 1SICKLEX, I will not buy a car that doesn't have a sunroof, I use it all the time .. for fresh air, light, cooling the interior on a hot day ... and I'm tall, so to have the roof completely closed in drives me insane.

I never open it all the way. I usually just pop it up. The sunroof is pretty useless to me I guess
