It will just get caught in the headliner piece.... a little bit wouldn't be bad, but if it's pouring it will soak through andmake a mess.

I drive in the rain with it vented....and I'm fine. Not too sure about parked though.

Solution: Close your sunroof when parking in the rain?

I would only vent the sunroof if i could park with it vented. Because houston is hot and hot air inside my car cooks shit inside.

Ive accidently left my sunroof tilted during about 6 hours of pouring down rain, ran out to my car when i realized it while it was still pouring and found my car to be totally 100% dry inside
