Not here sorry... both mine are factory.

Up here in Canada, places like "Apple Auto Glass" can install a sunroof (not a moonroof) for like $400 Cdn.

They would be the type that "flip up", and you could remove the entire glass.
I doubt they would be motorized.

Either way a car w/ a sunroof is better then one w/o..... IMHO

Just make sure the body/glass shop you choose is reputable and has some sort of guarantee against leakage. I've heard bad stories about seals going bad, and rain-soaked seats (when the top was closed).

Before you go spending 400 for a manual or 800 for motorized, make sure you want to spend that amount of money for another window instead of something else.
