hope you know what you are doing, because you will need to strengthen the roof structure to compensate for cutting out the roof. Be safe!

Highly doubt it. I'm sure the structural components were located outside of the area where the sunroof would require cutting for prep for factory sun roofs.

It would be cheaper to sell your Cruze and buy a used one with a sunroof than to add an aftermarket sunroof to yours.
It's not that expensive, 7-800 at a good shop (that was dealer cost, maybe a bit more for a customer), 1-2 day turn around time.

And that will get you an OEM-quality sunroof? For some reason, I remember them being closer to $1200-$1500.

It sure will. I had one added to a car for $800. Only owned it 5 years, but it worked just fine.

Plus can't get an Eco with a sunroof anyway.

That's true. Can't get an Eco with a lot of things come to think of it. Then again, I wonder how much leather and a sunroof add to the weight of the car.

An aftermarket sunroof for $800 will be a pop up unit not a power one that slides back between the headliner and roof. If your ok with that, then go for it. otherwise just sell the car and buy what you want. You will not sacrifice the integrity of the car as the bracing surrounds the sunroof and the only cutting is of the roof skin itself.

Subscribing to this, and please keep us updated! A sunroof was one thing I was sad about with my LS that I didn't get. Actually one of the first things my girlfriend said to me when we were driving is "I wish you had a sunroof" (In which I replied with something along the lines of at least my car is from this century - she drove a '91 sunbird at that time).

I've heard that Webasto dealers are generally pretty good, as they do OEM sunroofs.

I'm watching this thread too. I really like open roofs. I wish there was an available fabric sunroof, like the one on the Fiat 500, that goes all the way back.

Sunroofs i had the 700 series installed in my first cruze. having the factory sunroof in my new cruze i can verify that the webasto/ hollandia roof is far far better then oem. i have had this roof installed in my 01 blazer, 06 cobalt, 07 tahoe, and my totalled out '12 first cruze. very quite, even or the freeway. it was actually 950 going through my dealer instead of going straight through the company, kinda weird but imho the 950 was soo worth it.
