Garage Door - Roller

I am looking to get a new car shortly and this means having to change the garage door. The current door is a canopy style and because of its arc of travel at the front of the garage it would collide with the new vehicle I am considering.
I'm thinking about replacing the canopy door with a roller door. Just wondered whether anyone had any useful comments about installing a roller door?

Depending on width you will need between 275mm and 350mm clear space above door and in roof space to accomadte the rolled up door.
Thermaglide are extremly easy to install and come with good instuctions for a diy install,they are also insulated.they do not depend on a spring for opertion
The other type from steel-line or henderson are not in my opinion your average diy install type as the spring tension needs to be set by the installer and can be tricky if instructions are not followed,and also they look cheap and are cheap
