Thought of a cool mod, but never have seen it...

well, I wanted to wait until I did it to post, but I'm gonna need a little help figuring things out. I want to put a moonroof in my car... just not sure how difficult it would be. I was told some models of audis had the same size sunroof as mk2 and some had moonroofs, but I haven't had much luck in finding out for sure. Cause I thought maybe I could find one at a wrecking yard and swap them. Either way I was wondering what the best route in getting this done was? Has anyone else seen one on an Mk2?

Phone a body shop that does custom work... I'm sure they'll have done one on some other car... custom/aftermarket moon roofs aren't mk2/a2 specific...

To my recollection, none have been found to match the dimensions of the sunroof opening in an a2. Most people just go for the pop ups. Although I don't see why they couldn't weld brackets onto the frames for the tracks to bolt on to.

I have a friend that owns a VW wrecking yard and we have measured every type of VW sun/moon roof and only the Audi/scirocco Tilt/Slide sunroof is the same size so far. Your probably looking at custom stuff there. Dave

there are alot of companies that will put "generic" ones, there this one shop here in california call "Sunroofs Unlimited" in Irvine somewhere... and about 4 years ago.. they put a sliding electric sunroof into my friends honda accord that had nothing on top. they even relined his headliner.. it looked good! cost about 800$ though.. eek! my two cents.

What about one from a mk1 gti?
A friend of mine is in the beginning stages of restoring one, and said he'll probably ditch the sunroof - because it weighs 60lbs.
Maybe a mk1 sunroof would fit?

Not even the corrado moonroof will work on a golf/jetta. Unless some one really wants to state the contrary.
