Yes, I can be done. I have never attempted it, but it can definately be done. Use realoem.com and figure out which parts you'll need. Wicked site. The best way to do it is if you have a car with a power roof, and you'll learn as you go while you take it appart.

There is a whole conversion kit including all parts from BMW - try ebay they go for around 150USD

I have a 325is parts car, so i would most likely use try and use the parts out of that

My car is rust free with the exception of the sunroof panel. I'd love to swap the panel for another one, preferrably tinted glass. I am interested in seeing the results of this particular project though!

^^ the sunroof panel can be replaced separately without disturbing the mechanicisms of the sunroof itself.
