    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?

    maybe they know someone will put it onto it's roof, or maybe the strain on the body under heavy acceleration would crack it.....vx eh

    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.
