a real ur-q sunroof??

for real???  an ur-quattro factory sliding roof - now you're talking.  ok
phil, you need to get roger drunk, pissed as a neut preferably, and then get
him to agree to a late night sunroof refit.  during which time you will note
how the hell audi did it, and come up with a 10-step easy retrofit guide for
the rest of us stuck with a virtually useless sunroof....

hell, i'll even reimburse you for the grog :-)
