Love the list of serious and not so serious questions that accompany the article!

Eg Q: Will I have to declare the addition of this modification to my insurance company and will it compromise the structural integrity of my car?
A: It doesn“t compromise the structural integrity of your car because it“s just a sticker with the shape of a sunroof that you put in your car“s roof.

I can't stop laughing at the bit about the 'scary face'

I dont like sunroofs, never have done.. apart from on fiestas and small hatchbacks especially without air-con.

a nice sleek, sexy 3 series coupe looks daft with a whole in the roof!

I think a few on here are now calling them ''Gay roof''

On the contrary, I believe it is you that is away with the fairies.

Glad I have my sunroof, don't regret it in the slightest.

So Ian, this is what you get up to when the rest of us are hard at work then?

Helen, please re-read the above. People who have them are not gay, the unit itself is gay.

Not bad enough to turn and bite the pillow though!!!

No advice I'm afraid - never been married. Just enjoy the M3, sure you'll pull driving that - just don't pull anyone with a hairy arse if you know what I mean

A mini 'Gay Roof' Review.

My car has a Gay Roof, I have not had one on a car since an E36 BMW when you either needed air con or a gay roof to sell the car 2nd hand.

The Gay was £800 and the fridge was about £2000 so it was a no brainer to go Gay.

Anyhow back to the review, my last 3 cars have been Convertible's and at last minute the day before my order went into the factory I had a final look at the options and added the tree and the roof. I thought after a convertible it might give a bit of the flavour of this in a small way.

Ok, Squeeze £675 ish - 8% is bloody steep for a bit of moving tinted glass but how nice and 'airy'the cabin feels with it and it's only winter at the mo. In the summer it will be great in the warm evenings and I am sure I will go for it again if I can justify the cash.

My Dad liked it and has gone for 1 on his new car.

Carlos, be a man be proud go GAY

You barely make B&W, don't flatter yourself.

And just for once, how about replying without FFSing, eh ?

GAY means what ? To you ?
