headroom in '90-'91 qc

Has anyone figured out a way to gain about a half inch of headroom in a
'90-'91 qc or other models?

I'm considering replacing my '85 5ks 5spd with a newer Audi product, most
likely one with the Quattro.  This past weekend I checked out a very clean
'90 qc here in the Chicago area.

One key problem I encountered was fit:  my head brushed the ceiling too
much.  It had the sunroof and Audi's sport seats. (Were the sport seats
standard in the qc?)  I didn't bump into it constantly, but often enough
that I thought it would be annoying as an owner.  If I could gain half an
inch I would fit.

I don't have this problem in my '85 5ks because it has no sunroof!  It's the
only one I've seen without one.  Were any '90-'91 coupes sold in this
country without sunroofs?  My Dad's '89 200q has the sunroof and sport seat
option; I have just barely enough room in it, but it would be better with
half an inch more.

I'm not a giant--only 6'4"--and with the ubiquity of sunroofs, it seems that
too many great cars are out of my consideration set because of headroom.
What to do?
