sunroof delete

As the title says.... I am mostly tracking my car... I want to delete the sunroof and just have a solid roof. Does anyone know of a kit out there or anything of the sort?

thanks,
Joe

I don't think it would be too hard to make a GRP infill panel for the sunroof hole and have it sprayed to the colour of your car. If you want to make it permanent (ish) then you could make a GRP infill panel and bond it in to the roof panel. Then you'd just have to change the roof liner in the car, however I don't know how difficult this would be (it would probably require the removal of the pillar covers minimum).

Is it doable? Yes. Is it cheap? If you don't do it yourself then hell no. Is it easy? Not really. Is it worth it? At the end of the day probably not.

If you're going to do it then you may as well find a used M3 carbon roof and have that fitted

How about this Carbon Fiber Sunroof Delete Panel

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carbon-fiber...ed67a0&vxp=mtr

Weighs only 4lb. Priced @ $295 and you can always paint to match if you want. After you sell your sunroof you'll still be ahead of the game

You think sunroofs may be a different size for e90's and e92's? Probably ask the seller for measurements

I asked him if it would fit an e90 and he said no. he also said they didnt have the mold to even make a e90 one.

IND has done them. But, obviously not cost effective.

Sounds like the next project for Taran.J and MME after the 1M bumpers???

I just went thru & did a comparison of sunroof assembly part numbers between E92 & E90 of the same year

Out of 20 items, there are only (3) that are different - one of them being the actual glass:

E92 54107161980
E90 54107157447


Even the glass gasket is the same P/N between the two - only thing I can figure is that the glass is contoured differently between the E92/E90 due to roof variations

Let's just get these bumpers made and then I'll look into it. I'm going to email the eBay buyer and just see if I can use my car as a mock up and assist him in making a mold.

Shouldn't be a hard thing to do. That's why if somebody local to the seller could leave his car there for a few days I bet that guy could make a mold and start pushing out the "Sunroof delete" lol
