    Factory sunroofs

    Is is possible to have a FACTORY sunroof with cloth upholstery in an '07? I thought the sunroof was included in the limited package that also included leather?

    I don't believe that was ever a U.S. option. The factory sunroof only came in the rex limited. Leather, Sunroof, Heated seats....

    Would this have to be an aftermarket sunroof?

    The 2004 and 2005 WRX Sedans equipped with the Premium Package have a sunroof and cloth interior.

    The only way to get a sunroof on a 2006 or 2007 WRX Sedan or Wagon was to order the WRX Limited, which comes with both leather interior and a sunroof.

    The most structurally sound way to get what you want is to buy a 2006-2007 WRX Limited, then swap in Cloth interior.

    Cutting a big hole in a roof that's not setup for it isn't recommenced.

    The car I am looking at doesn't have heated seats or leather but it does have a factory sunroof????

    Was it possible to order a factory sunroof on a non-limited WRX in 2007?

    No, it's not possible to order it that way from the factory.

    Have you checked the Vin? Are you sure it's a WRX Limited?

    You have two options here.
    1. It's a real WRX Limited with a factory sunroof, and the previous owner swapped out the leather for cloth.
    2. It's a standard WRX and the previous owner had a sunroof installed.

    It doesn't have heated leather seats and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have heated mirrors/wipers so I am pretty sure it's not a limited. Does the VIN identify if it is a limited? I can't seem to find anything that says so.

    Thank you.

    I thought if you ran the VIN with carfax, or the like, it would identify the trim level?
    Maybe not?

    The heated mirrors would have a little defrost symbol on them, and there would be an extra defrost button for the windshield.

    If you're not seeing these, then it's likely the car is option 2, in my scenarios above.
