I just saw something on a 240 that I've never seen before... a sliding sunroof. Mine just pops up but I really like the look of the one that slid back and out...like it had the same angle of a pop up, but it slid back over the rear part of the roof, it was really clean. Is there an easy way of changing a pop-up sunroof to a sliding?

BTW: They are called moonroof's when they slideback.
I'm not sure what they came on in particular but most Coupe's I see are LE models with leather and digital dash, so it would make sense for the LE models to have an electric moonroof stock, if you can't get one stock, there are plenty of aftermarket options, I think the moonroof would look neat on a 240, i've just never seen it done! :thumbup:

Now, I was always under the impression that sunroofs you could see through (glass) and moonroofs you could not see through (metal)... But if it goes by whether or not it slides...then yeah I'm talking about a moonroof...

Hmmm...Good point...Check Joel's post, he seems to think you can't install a slider in the fastbacks.
If I were you just for curiosity's sake check with an automobile glass specialist in your area and see if they have an aftermarket slider for either the 240 or a Generic aftermarket version that would fit.
They can install em pretty clean these days!

I dotn see why it would be much trouble?? The Euro style roof that slides back and up would work... It would have to a be a small sunnroof but it would work. Unless you closed it so you could open the hatch.

I want one on my 240. So when ever I get time Im gonna see if I can get it done.

I went to my friends place last night, his 1993 240SX Coupe has the sliding Sunroof because it is an LE.
The Sunroof actually slides inside the sheet metal it's really clean and smooth looking, electric too!
Unfortunately it seems that the roof on the coupes is 3 or 4 inches longer which can accomodate the sliding roof, so you couldn't put the stock one from a Coupe in a fastback, but I am sure there are some aftermarket sun roof's availible out there somewhere.
