yeah i would be pretty hacked off too, but jeez thats bad, bodyshop who did it should be banned from working on cars.
For me depends on the extent of damage underneath and how it needed repaired in the first place.
Would need to know before i even bothered, but that amount of filler suggests it was extensive, if you want to fix to sell then fine but again for me, i would either get it done properly and say nowt or tidy up and i would feel compelled to mention it, because i would be gutted to buy and it happened again.
Is it not possible this is the scenario, glass roof was broken somehow, whichever way, accident or just plain old damage. The body shop could not get the new sunroof to fit bang on with the back and so filled it.
Or sunroof was fine but the rear part of the roof was damaged and i suppose filled to make level with the front sunroof, if this makes sense.
Either way there is no getting away from the fact its been done badly, no point saying otherwise, as mentioned take it to somewhere reputable and ask what their opinion is as far as if it can be fixed and how much.
If to expensive, sell on, move on but clearly this would significantly lower your resale price.
I would throttle any bodyshop that did that to mines.
