Good question. Does anyone know? I figure with a sunroof delete, manual trans, and akrapovic exhaust system that is an easy 100 lbs off the the car right there.

we think alike. no extra things that are not useful, add complexity, break or add weight to an already heavy car.

my dealer here in germany is looking into it, but no information out of munich yet for US spec cars. I know the German and UK spec cars can be ordered without a sunroof.

You'd probably be able to do it but only through Individual, and then it'd cost you to remove it. The US production line machinery and parts supply chain are most likely set up on the assumption that there'll be a moonroof, so removing it wouldn't be as easy as you might think.
