Hi all, I'm looking for anywhere to try for fully comp insurance that covers the glass roof on my RCZR. Any recommendations please? I'm in the UK.
Many thanks!

Glass roof??? Unless you have installed the worlds first sunroof in an RCZ I think you'll find it's metal...

Welcome to the forum by the way! :thumbup:

RCZ R has a "double-bubble" glass roof. It's not a sunroof.

I'm sure someone on the Facebook group got theirs vandalised and the roof was dented.

Why'd they take the arches off ?

OK may be Peugeot HQ have got it wrong too! I sent them a contact form - entered all my RCZ-R details (reg no. etc.) & asked the following......

I am currently trying to find insurance for my RCZ-R but I'm not sure of the specification of the roof of the vehicle. It looks like glass but am told it's metal. Could you please confirm the material so I can make sure I get insurance that covers glass roof if necessary.

I've just received their reply...

Thank you for your email about the material of the roof on your
Peugeot RCZ R.

I've looked into this for you and the specification of the roof is glass.

I hope this helps; thanks again for getting in touch, and please feel free to share any feedback you have for us on the short survey we’ll be sending out.

Kind regards

This is a never-ending topic around the RCZ. Almost everybody asks me the following question when they see the RCZ first time: Does the roof opens? Is it glass?
Answer: No. And no.
Reply: ohhh, that is a pity. It'd be so nice...

So, it is a sheet of painted metal even if it looks like glass.

This is from the Peugeot system.

As said previously the roof is metal (no 1), there are a choice of 2 panels (no 10) that can go on top of the metal panel.Image
