Hey I was thinking of adding a POP up (manual) sun roof to my 2016 E4. It’s hot here in Nor Cal and some times you need additional air threw the Gem. I wanted to take a Pop up sun roof & install it Backwards. Kind of like how the Older VW Bus’s had Safari Windows that could lean forward and take in Air.
My question is any one have any advise or Ideas. The roof is VERY curved and choosing the right sun roof is important cause most sun roofs are no where near as curved as the gem roof
The 17inch square sunroofs look like 1 could fit dead center in the roof just above the rear view Mirrior mount. The roof is the most conducive to a sunroof right their. So I
Might be stuck with just doing 1 small one in the center. ??
Well. You would have to get a little creative. All you need is two brackets and a piece of plexiglass. Have the brackets mount into the rail.
And you would not be cutting a hole in your roof. You could always go back to that if you had too.
Well I ordered the 17x17 pop up’s the kit comes with 2 of them. I was Originally thinking I would put 1 right in the sweet spot of the roof and call it a day, but my other option could be to install both of them side by side. That way we could have a Driver/ Passenger option.
Unsure of what I’ll do or how I will install until it gets here. I ultimately wanted 1 larger one but I just didn’t think the large curved roof would accept it (the sun roofs are pretty flat) I thought installing a large flat sun roof would distort the roof to much.
