That was a prompt response Vikram.

Now another OT question: According to indian law, we are not supposed to add additional lights to the car. we are supposed to use only the lights which were provided by the manufacturer. Right? I may be wrong too. but i am in this assumption.
Some say that, this varies from state to state, but i am not sure.. any info on this would be good for me.

I'm thinking out aloud and the idea may seem ridiculous to some but I wish to get it clear in my head, so please help as I could not get much info elsewhere.

Ever since I was a little boy I loved staring at the sky especially on clear, starry, full moon nights. I used to believe that the moon was following my car wherever we were going and later realised that was not the case. Now cut to the time when I was driving around in a car fitted with a sun-roof. I absolutely loved the fact that the cabin was better lit and I could see the rain-drops fall on the roof during the monsoons. I never particularly kept it open but just having a glass over my head while driving gave me a pleasant feeling.

My question is that can I get a fixed glass roof installed in my Ritz which would extend all the way from the front seating area to the rear seats?? How practical/impractical would it be?? And I specifically want one which does not open but gives a panoramic view and if something like this is available then where and at what cost??

That's way too simple. All you need to do is sell your Ritz and buy another car that starts with R. You get it just the way you want. Take a look at this:

On a serious note, that's not feasible at all on a Ritz. Period.

Actually I just happened to see the thread before posting and honestly that very picture did inspire me to do the same in my humble hatchback. Its a pity that nothing this side of 24L can offer me a panoramic roof with the B-class being the cheapest option and hence I raised the question.

This effectively means that we cannot get an aftermarket sunroof in India today. Inalfa also does not seem to exist.

Bro, I say go for it.
Get a Webasto sunroof only. They provide the OEM sunroofs to VAG [for Skoda Atleast].
Make sure they fit drainage pipes on all four corners of the sunroof that lead out to the 4 wheel arches of the car. that will prevent any sort of leaking. [and you'll have to routinely ensure that the drainage pipes aren't blocked.]
My sunroof used to leak, till i got the drainage pipes cleaned out.

It looks like Webasto is back in India? I have been exploring options to install an after market sunroof in my Duster, and chanced upon the Webasto South India contact, and from him got the contact of the Bangalore dealer (Street Kars, JC Road).

A couple of queries for the forum:
- Since the last post in this thread was a couple of years ago, my request is for anyone in the recent past (say 2016-17) who have installed or know people who have installed any of these Webasto sunroofs? I like the Hollandia 300 NSG Comfort version - anyone with any ideas on that?
- Anybody has visited this Street Kars at JC Road, Bangalore? I'd like to hear some first hand feedback of workmanship of this shop before submitting to such a big modification.

Thanks in advance.

I have got a lot of ICE work done from this shop for the past ten years for over 4-5 cars, HU/components/Amps etc and their quality has been fantastic,no issues with wiring/whining etc
The name of the owner is Mr Mahesh
That being said,I think the owner has a webasto sunroof installed on his own swift
Personally,I have never had the guts to go ahead with such a big modification in the aftermarket
You can probably ask him for reference pictures before you go ahead with the installation
I am in no way related to him and have no commercial interest in the same,just sharing my experience
I can share his contact number via PM if you require it
Hope that helps!

Helps tremendously, thank you! I am in touch (on WhatsApp) with a Mr. Vishal from Street Kars, who I thought was the owner. I'll PM you for the contact of Mr Mahesh. Thanks again.
