    You forget that unless someone buys the exact same car as you did, they are in effect saying you made a bad choice.

    Since its VERY unlikely anyone bought a car exactly like mine, I just automatically punch everyone I meet in the face for diss'ing me.

    Nobody is getting their backs up over nothing....you're the one dissing sunroofs calling them pointless, even though you spent extra
    bucks for one that you don't plan using....that's fine....money isn't an issue with you...but then you call it a "useless option"....others disagree and have the right to give reasons why.....it's nothing personal at all....we "luv" them; you don't...doesn't make anyone right or wrong....that's what makes forums fun......p.s. sunroofs rule!

    I love sun/moonroofs usually. I really liked the Ultraview in my CTS and CTS-V. That said, I did not get the roof in my ATS premium for three reasons. First, I found it to be really noisy, especially over 45 mph, and the noise was high pitched, which I found especially annoying. Second, this particular roof is pretty small, so it doesn't let in a lot of light. Third, rear headroom is severely compromised; lean just a bit forward and you hit the roof. Not to mention the added weight and complexity, or the money it costs. Fortunately, the car remains quiet with the driver's window open up to nearly freeway speeds, so fresh air isn't a problem. While I still miss a sunroof, I don't miss this particular one

    I will say the Ultraview in my V took a lot of rear headroom. When I sat in the back of a V sedan at Monticello without one, it felt cavernous in comparison.

    But the Ultraview was too good. And the girls loved it. More than any other part of the V...

    I was just looking at some after market parts. Has anyone tried the plastic wind deflectors for the sunroofs? That might solve some of the noise issues?

    I had one on a Nissan Pathfinder we once had. It helped, but on a car I'm not sure I would do it. It looks like this bubble on the roof. It wasn't as noticeable in the SUV with the roof rails and such, but on a car I think it would mess up the lines.

    Just my two cents.

    I too like the ultra view, but if anything it is a noiser type sunroof than the smaller one in the ATS.....but then again, I find neither one at all obtrusive in the noise factor; certainly quieter than opening any window for fresh air. IMHO if one gets either a V or an ATS, rear passenger room is secondary; if that's important get a XTS ol' man's car. A sports car without a sunroof is pointless for me.
