I checked today.  My roof stays open if I shut the ignition, door open or closed.

Depends on if you want to look cool or not and if you want a nice tan on your face.

I've had both. The sunroof was cool, but now that I don't have one, I really have never found myself missing it. The Riviera has massive Windows that let a lot of light/air in anyway.

Plus no sunroof=weight reduction=racecar afro

It's one of the features that I really wish I had. I always liked being able to look up at everything whenever I ride in a car with a sunroof or T tops. Screw weight reduction, learn to deal with it.

All else being equal, I wonder how much heavier the sunroof does make the car. I doubt it's much at all. I just kind of like the closed-in feel. I'm trying to darken up my tan interior to make it feel smaller. I want to feel like I'm in a cockpit haha.

I really liked the sunroof too, even with all the trouble it brought me. I've been looking at a really nice bordeaux with beige interior riv with no sunroof, it just looks like something is missing, but maybe cause i got used to the sunroof.

The weight gain is negligable. The glass is heavy, but so is steel and the reinforcement it comes with on a roof like ours. I really wish I had one, I really liked the open-ness.

My current Riv does not have one and Im actually sort of thankful. One less thing to leak/break.
