Retrofitting a BMW 2002 factory sunroof

Jul 25 2014 03:03 PM | Artcop in Body and Interior

Those of you who came here because you love your current '02, or you just don't have a pile of money and time to shop around for another one, or you're just interested to find out what it would take to accomplish this will hopefully get some answers here. If you have any real questions about the procedure don't hesitate to contact me through the forum, I'll be happy to share what I (now) know.
