Man, I was just thinking the other day to bump this thread to see how this came out!

That looks great! Looks like a new button layout also vs. the older model.

What was the ball park final price If you wouldn't mind sharing? Last time I looked 3 years ago it was hard to find installers who get the Webasto 710, let alone install. The one I did find was about $2,700.00.

More pictures of headliner and control inside please!

  • $1,482.94 because I paid cash the installer charged me $1,399.00. I'm looking at the receipt right now. It's actually a Webasto Hollandia 710 the switch PN is 755.

I've received 6 PM's regarding more pics here a few more. Once nightfall hits I'll take one with it open. I've had 2 offers to buy the car in 1 hour. '04 GTO with VIN ending in L200082 is now among the few with a sunroof, it took me awhile to save up the money (FAMILY FIRST) to get one but I'm so very very happy with the result.

That came out super nice and not a bad price at all. What is the name of this installer and where are they located? They may have another customer

The illuminated switch & a night shot with the sunroof open the blue lights are the dome lights I had blue LED's installed last year it kind of gives it a nice glow.

THANK YOU!!!!!! Philly has been going through an unusually warm winter so I've been able to open it & all I call say is I'm glad I had it installed. The tilt feature especially, it might be just a little to cold to open the windows but to be able to tilt the sunroof just to get a little fresh air inside the car is nice. It was money well spent.

Looks like a good install. So glad you are happy with it. But for me, you could delete the sunroof in my DD and I wouldn't even notice.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!! Bro we are having a preview if spring like temperatures here in Philly I had it fully open earlier today TRUST ME there is nothing like hearing the sound of 3 inch headers through straight pipes with the windows closed & the sunroof open, I'm very VERY well pleased with the install.

Sorry for not replying sooner, been sick and have 3.73 Diff upgrade in progress (oem M80 Diff is not a favorite among rebuilders, very complicated).

SunRoof Update:
Here is link to where I purchased mine:


Installation instructions are on Web Page also.

It currently sits (unopened) in my bedroom:( Waiting for car to leave (hauled) to my rebuilder. My rebuilder will check Diff this Thursday..If it passes (really doubt it, rebuilder is really trying and quite fair). I have completed 200 mile breakin - 40 mph for 30 min then cool for 30 min. Next breakin (assuming diff is OK) is 200 miles - 60 mph for 30 min then cool for 30..My gears are Dana-Spicer and very, very quiet. However, notice above I am hauling (not driving car) to rebuilder. Stopped driving car,,as soon as grinding sound appeared. Which means current Diff has some opportunities for improvement. Strange grinding sound (when turning left and diff is hot). Getting Diff right is paramount to driving to sunroof installer.

Once it's cut its CUT!!!!!!! I'd like to know just how many 04-06 GTO owners have one?
I have one on mine. Came with the car when I bought my ’05 M6 last year with 10k miles on it. There is one guarantee with every sunroof ever made by every manufacturer, it will at sometime leak, and often at an inopportune time and/or cost. And as has been said before, “once it’s cut it’s cut.” Personally, I would not have had the sun roof installed, had the car not come with it already. Just to not go through the headache of when, not if, water gets inside (smell, electrical issues, mold) and to retain structural integrity, especially if you are adding power or torque. If you have a need to spend money on your GTO, replace parts that are due for changeout or save it for getting your seats reupholstered, door moulding rubber, clutch, suspension, etc. There is a shopping list posted somewhere on this site that goes through a good chunk of this. My slave cylinder blew out the diaphragm recently at 17k miles, mostly from sitting and decay. Nevertheless, $2500 between parts from tick performance (tick/monster complete kit) and a man that backs his labor for install, just to not have to contest with the diaphragm problem again.
Thinking about it now while composing this, I may as well get a new sunroof on order and store it just in case webago goes out of business, or for whatever reason sunroofs are deemed unsafe in the future and not available for sale.

Try Krytox,,,heard many good comments...

Audi, MB and BMW use it.

There are some cheaper / easier products for weatherstrip treatment than Krytox .
Keep Krytox off your paint and use only a very thin line of it when applying.
