I have a regular sunroof on my car right now. I was wondering is it possible to change it into a moonroof? If it is has anyone done it? How much does it usually cost?

Unless you did it yourself it would not be worth paying some one to do. If you had the money to do it, you already would have. Meaning you would have dropped it off at a shop and said do it and send me the bill. As far as doing it yourself, I have never seen a write up for our cars. But I would be willing to bet that there is a write up on how to do it somewhere on the "Information super highway". But it would most likely involve losing the use of your car for days or weeks.

"Sunroof" is the generic term used to describe an operable panel in a vehicle roof which can let in light and/or air. "Moonroof" is a term created by Ford in the 70s, yet is now used generically to describe glass panel inbuilt electric sunroofs. So basically, "sunroof" is the term originally used to describe a metal panel that would only allow light or air in when opened. A "moonroof," on the other hand, is a glass panel that can allow light in even when it is closed (provided, of course, you slide back that nifty fabric-covered panel to expose the glass).
