When I was buying mine, the fact that it hasn't got one was a plus point for me. One less thing to leak or go wrong.

I used to have one on my old Clio, and used it only very occasionally (this is Scotland, after all), mostly to compensate for the cars' complete lack of air conditioning.

My Clio also had manual window winders all round, for that retro look.

Don't really use it but nice to let the sunlight in sometimes.

If I had one.... I used the one in the D8 and I miss it in the '9. I wouldn't be using it now of course.

ah yes the motorbike ashtray the ideal solution for any motorcyclist who has it all. But a sunroof isnt that bad.

The answer is, not really :) . It's a novelty to let a bit of air and light in but the climate is so good that I never need it.

True, I think a pan roof would be top dollar though
If I move away from 406's, then a 407 SW HDi with pan roof would be towards the top of choices
