    Hi. I just bought a 2008 Touting Prius about 3+ weeks ago. Can someone recommend a shade for the console display that will hold up in Arizona heat? Also, I would welcome some feedback on having a sun/moon roof installed. Thank you.

    Be sure to check out the google search feature of the site, both have been discussed in the past.
    I don't have specifics on the sunroof, but recently someone had one done...cost was around $1300 I believe.

    The shade is cheaper and easier. There are a couple out there but I'd recommend Robin with Priushoods. A previous sponsor who's produced several renditions of the hood, the most recent being quite nice, easy to install and durable.

    My first post. (I'll have a new avatar soon, I promise!)

    I too live here in sunny Arizona, and wouldn't think of driving a car without a sunroof. As a matter of fact, it wasn't until I found this site and saw one could be added that I bought a Prius.

    It cost $990 through the dealer, but it was done by Arizona Sun Tops (arizonasuntops.com), and it looks great. I have an inalfa asi 750FF, which both tilts and retracts, and I love it. Only negative? It automatically closes at power off, so I have to trick it each time to leave it open a bit. (Keep them batteries cool!)

    Hope this helps. Post back and let me know what you find!
