It looks like the reason Audi won't delete the Sunroof in the US is because they chose not to submit a non-sunroof A5 or S5 for crash testing.

This is from Kurt Seablom, Audi's west coast marketing head:

Unfortunately, all S5s are equipped with Sunroofs... it is not possible to order one without. This is due to crash test regulations.

With the summer heat and kids throwing stuff from the LA freeway overpasses, I'd be more comfortable and safer without the glass.

I had the idea of replacing it with a carbon fiber piece. It might look ugly, but it would save weight, eliminate the added head from the annoying mesh cover they have, and might.....just maybe.....look ok. Thoughts?

I'll let someone else do it first though.
