    Lightbulb Sun Roof for My Black Mamba _ City 2009

    Hi All ,

    I just joined PW and saw some amazing stuff/mods being done by fellow PWers....... so this gave me a WILD idea to get a sunroof for my City 09 ..... this lead to the ultimate confusion ...... No one has done it on City ...... It might not go well at the end ....... Resale of the car ??...... So now i am Confused!!!!!

    I know if all goes well i will be the first one to pull it off for a City !!!

    Need suggestions here
    My Action Plan :: Should I or Should I not go for aftermarket sunroof for my Black Mamba??

    Spano's DIY Sunroof on his 95 civic has deeply inspired me for this Punga! Lolz

    Totally confused. Some say Go for it!! Some say Dont even think about it.
    What do you guys suggest. I need sincere suggestions like....

    Impact on Resale of Car
    Originality being disturbed
    Satisfied End Reults i.e Water draining while rain etc
    Electrically perfect working
    Inner ceiling "pooshish" being intact after 6 moths or more.......

    My Inspiration : Spano's 95 civic
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/d-i...civic-95-spano

    For reference: My current car thread
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...de-black-mamba


    Anxiously awaiting feedback on it from some experts .... specially those who have done it ..... !!!

    @Immad: Yes you are right, I have made up my mind to explore this option to the nth level however i will only execute it if and only if i am confident enough that it will be done with out any glitches..... It would be a great help if you consult the guy who did this for LC and PM me the details .....

    Coming over to Fsd is not a big deal and i can visit on 1 days notice - might meet you as well

    Man dont think sooo narrowely if you like and satisified then go regardless of originality and resale, Believe me im viewing your thread from start, I own 06 XLI and after your success project i'll install in my car. Have you any idea about total estimated cost, share it and also avalibility of after market Sunroof. Plus have u asked Honda showroom guys, if they do reasonable thn there'll b no doubt in installing.

    @Applerocks
    If it would had been me decided to get sunroof , i,ll surely go to peshawar and get it done. I will do the khuwaari of going to Peshawar and get it done from an expert rather to risk my car and get it done from some1 whos work i havent seen. Contact Ehtishaam (Spano) for his expertise.

    Default update

    Hi All - Just spoke to Ehtisham (Spano ) and talked to him in detail about the project...... As per him he has succesfully installed the sunroof in more than 12 cars till now and none of them had any issues

    The fitting is as good as a Factory fitted SunRoof and no need to get any sort of paint work done after its installed

    Now comes the bad part ---- As per Spano there is no after market sunroof available in Pakistan at the moment....... Spano committed that if i can arrange a Sunroof he will assist me in getting it installed for me

    Now mates - the Million dollor question is where to arrange an after market Sunroof ?? i have checked some of the shops in lahore and they dont have any sunroofs available

    I just called Honda. They have but.......for 1.8 l, just the glass is for Rs. 50810 and for the previous 1.6l, the price is Rs. 47070! Note that this is just for the glass, not cables, switch and votever extra you may need. But then, this is Honda........we need someone outside.
