Hey everyone...just wondering about converting a manual roof to an electric one? Is it just a matter of changing a few of the components or are they different in a way that renders it an unviable expensive decision...

Cheers for your help, Doug.

i dont know if it is that easy to convert diy style. but most of the components are there and you could have a new electric system installed for £300-£500 But its not really worth it.
I'm quite alright with DIY so if I could get all the parts cheap, it'd be ace fun to do and an easier car when done! Either that or I can get a new glass two way installed for about 600pounds. Hmm...but that ain't original looking...
BMW used to offer the moon roof for the e30, but I don't know about the availability today.
