Do they have a website? How can these be purchased once they're manufactured?

I was told by my contact at Pilkington, Chen; that Ohio will Mfg these tops with the original logos. Chen called me back to tell me that they found the origianl tooling for these tops. I have given my contacts phone number to a few out there who are willing to lend them their tops to make sure the product they make is perfect. They plan on making a minumum of 100 units to start. Look I can not guarantee anything here, but can only forward what I am told. If we can do this, we all will benefit. If they can not, nothing is lost here. Let all keep our fingers crossed that this pans out the way we would like. I will speak to my contact today and tell them, at this time i beleive we can sell 100 units without delay. i will buy as many to keep this promise. I hope you all can benefit from my efforts. There is nothing in this for me, except a new top at a good price; just like you.

Don't get me too excited. I told my fiance about this and she thought it was really cool idea. If she is on board with it then I am definitely down. I guess this means something else that will push back my rear hatch reseal.

This makes me wish my turbo had the sunroof (well, not really!).

I might be interested in a powered unit for my S2, pending on price.

This would be a great part to have, but since I hardly use the S2 these days I couldn't justify paying "too much"... Concerned with costs for shipping overseas too and even more concerned with probably getting it broken.

I'll be in for one, if only because they may not continue production for ever if they do re-start it ?
Do these tops tilt and remove same as factory roof ?

Is there difference between '86 models and later ? I know the seals changed.

I've got a bronze tinted one but wanted a blue tint, so I'd be up for one if the price is right.
