Well, since most of us never bought the MB new, we don't have choices about sunroofs. Personally, I like the sunroof, especially the tilt up ones in 124 and 126. If I had a choice between identical cars, one with and one without sunroof, I'd still pick the sunroof. The problem now is that

Pour water into the (open) roof slowly and check to see how fast it drains (all four corners). The front wheel arches have a cover that needs to be removed (half a dozen machine screws) to get at the gunk that accumulates from the front drains. But if your wet area is in the back it's more
