My biggest complaint with the Premium is that you can't get a backup camera unless you also get the sunroof. I can't take the sunroof-- as I need the headroom it takes away. Also, the sunroof isn't that great, even if it didn't steal over an inch of headroom-- it is rather small. The one on the Forrester is much nicer.
