No the sun roof is not fully automatic. It is electrically operated by two open/close switches. Also it opens only 3/4th of the way. A small kid can get though it but not a grown up. The only automatic feature it has is that it automatically closes when I switch of the ignition. Even this feature is programmable. I did not have any warranty problems as it was fitted at the dealer's place by the Webasto guys. Webasto gave me one year warranty for the sunroof. But till now no problems. No leaks also.

I want to dyno it but the only problem is that I am in Bangalore and the dyno is in Mumbai. Also I dont know when me and my car will both be in Mumbai.

dyno would be a good idea and you might be able to further tune it to perform better
but if it runs on 97 octane then driving down to bombay and getting stuck with wrong fuel (i think it happened to mclaren) maybe a big pain

My car runs on 91 octane speed petrol. No need for 97 octane as the compression is the stock compression.

I am sure there are quite a few willing drivers to take it there (with or without you)

vikram - i think most of us will understand. I am sure if i were in your place I too would not give my car to anyone for ripping, unless its the tuner or someone sensible i trust infact even now i don't give my santro to most people (and boy are they an angry lot who think i am some possessive snob) and no it won't be going in for a tc job anytime soon hehe
