hey guys, just poppin in to say hello.
I have been reading threads for a couple hours now and just trying to get a feel for my new SL AWD.

Just picked it up this weekend (the fx35 I bid on went to high and this 05 was priced right, bigger inside and gets better mileage. I think I made a wise call)

anyway as others have stated, I needed the clearance for hight so I could not allow for a sun roof. While an 06 special ordered could have been set up w/ leather an w/out sunroof, I am finding it almost imposible to find a used one w/ said features. I went ahead and purchased this 05 w/ cloth. Now I am going to upgrade it to leather.

I have seen a few have speced out the job to local shops. anyone have any luck with an OEM kit? any recomendations?

So far I love my new car. I am so amazed when I get out and see how small it is compared to how big it feels on the inside.

Great forum btw.
thanks in advance!

Welcome

Welcome to the forum. You must be really tall. I'm 6'2 and have no problem at all with a sunroof.... Hope you enjoy your MO! :29:

jaggy13-

I feel your pain. As much as I like leather interiors, I am 6'3" and was unable to fit comfortably in a sunroof-equipped MO. However, I was so impressed with the MO that I had no problem going without. It's a shame Nissan wasn't less restrictive with their option packages.

Enjoy your new ride. :roadtrip:

Wow, I seem to be the only one that actually didn't want a sun roof. I'm only 6'1" so the height isn't a problem, I just don't like sun roofs.

You will love your Murano, welcome to the happy driving family! :cool:

Thanks alot for the warm welcome guys. (and gals ;) )
the murano was one of 3 potential's that I had in mind and frankly I didn't think I would be able to get one. They seem to hold their value so well in my local market that I could have bought new for the price of used here. luckily a trip to vegas solved that issue.

I'm 6'4" and wear a 32-34 inseam. most of my height is in my torsoe.
The FX35 would have been my top pick (I actually fit w/ the sunroof because of the design) But given all factors, total price, room and mileage the murano was really the best pick.

I have driven pickup trucks most of my life and I'm finally getting used to parking this thing. I keep thinking its so much bigger than it is. What a great car though, I have 0 buyers remorse. (next up after the leather is a nav/stereo system.)
