Default what my dealer told me

i asked my dealer about putting a sunroof in my 02 wrx and he said he wouldn't. it was something they were looking into but decided not to when their sunroof installer told them that he'd have to cut part of the rollbar, which he refused to do. as bad as i want a sunroof i don't know how i feel about fooling with the structural integrity of my car. ah well, the positives far outweigh the negatives in this car so i'll just live with it.

It's not just about the structural integrity of the car, in the event of an accident. A substantial modification of the body, like a sunroof, can adversely affect the whole car.

Part of the reason why your car handles so well is because it has a fairly ridgid body. Cut a big hole into it, and you're going to introduce a lot of body flex.

The car doesn't have a sunroof for a reason, and it ain't weight.
