They were in the sale last year, so there may be a few people willing to sell one.

I purchased one as a spare, I'm due to replace all the fittings on mine and was concerned it wouldn't take much to cause it to shatter.

I would prefer a 'Composite' roof instead of the Glass one?!........How come your car has one? Did not think they were officially available on G cars? Swap?!!!!

I'm sure I read somewhere that it is possible to obtain one made from carbon fibre. Might be worth a Google.

I used to supply the Cf roofs moulded from a glass roof. I gave my mould to PNM Engineering. This was moulded from a Stevens galss roof. The G car is slightly flatter ad the front corners. I reckon it's a 98% match but corners will dip in a bit. These cost about
