    Default Why no Panoramic Roof on the Astra VXR?

    Just browsing through the Vx website and went to spec up an Astra VXR. Every other car you can have a panoramic roof.... You can't on the VXR? Any ideas why not?

    Torque steer strain on the chassis causing flex and cracking the glass roof maybe?

    Must be a common theme John. I couldn't spec the Meriva VXR with sunroof yet all other models can have twin roof. I think it something to do with possible stress on the bodywork.

    It is purely down to body flex with the 240PS power plant.
