      So work comps do not load pics all the time, and usually never in this thread, so I have to get on my phone and look it up again and then post to see what people are talking about LOL.

      So i wask inda hyped to see some textured caps and "wtf window covers" but I lol'ed after the fact.

      Nikhsub1, I'm like 99.9% sure iv neve seen your car because thers not pics on the comp, but looked it up, damn dude ride looks good, and especially the top!
      kinda wish I got a CW jsw when I was looking but ohh well. Saved money on the black side mirror caps and roof I guess haha.
      Bunch of stuff.

      FYI my mirrors are the OEM black textured MKV caps.
      I did the roof along with tinting the windshield a near clear ceramic, for both it was $550 - it was a package deal. The amount of work it takes to do, it is well worth that price IMO.

      Thx! I knew long before I bought the JSW what it would look like and what had to be done and now IMO it is presentable and proper

      I'm giving you a before I even see this. All my windows are tinted 20% and I am considering doing this more every day...probably just waiting for some warmer weather to make the vinyl easier to deal with. I love the black roof, too, BTW.

      Not a fan of black rims but these aren't too bad. Kind of growing on me. Love the headlights and the side markers and the CW (of course, see my sig) and I too have a "black" roof....mines a pano

      Each to his/her own. Personally, I love a challenge. Driving with the pano (either open or closed is like driving around in (pardon me MT) "Big Sky" country. BTW, no creaks, no leaks, no sticking. Love my Pano!

      My son loves mine as well. I tried to find one without one when I was shopping for a JSW but after actually checking it out, I was sold on it.

      I insisted on NOT wanting one when shopping for my JSW, and the dealer I went through ended up throwing it in for free on top of what I already negotiated. Mine has a temperature dependent creak, but it's so much more quiet overall compared to my MK4 that I hardly notice

      After the creaks we got on the pano roof in both an Audi A3 and the Mini Cooper, I will *never* get another pano roof. With my wife's Mini, I basically have to get the damn thing "readjusted" every three months.



      I would've gotten a plain and simple single sunroof if they had offered it.

      yea no Pano for me either.
      Never really like sunroof's for that matter and the pano just looked like one big clsuterFck.
      But on a good note, iv only seen like 2 in the show for adjustment and moving issues. and none for cracks or larger issues.

      This is officially my least favorite thread on the Vortex!!!!

      I go through periods of convincing my self that it is stupid to dump any money into this car [performance/suspension] wise because I just dont need it.

      Then I come here and see all the really nice JSW and am instantly jealous and go for my credit card!!

      Thats how I ended up with my Hartmans

      So just popping in to say I hate each and every one of you

      My thoughts exactly. Even when I have a sunroof, I think I use it maybe 5 times a year. And only at night.
