Wow...that's strange. I just assumed all W8's came like with moonroofs and power folding mirrors, whether it was the sport or non-sport. The only difference between the sport/non-sport is suspension and wheels IIRC.

A moonroof, or even better, the sunroof would be so great, black interior gets damn hot in the summer.

"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).

What are the "solar panels" you speak of?

W00t, I thought all you guys had this, it what this guy retrofits in his TDI http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=218060

Basically, its solar panels on the sunroof, which powers the AC-fan if the temperature in the car gets to hot, pushing air from the outside to cool it down some.

I´m planing on building this into mine last year, but with a small MC battery and a thermostat.

Nope, I think they were factory options. Mine doesn't have the sunroof/solar panels, nor does it have the folding mirrors. I think they became standard later on

Hmm...I'm starting to see a pattern here. Maybe they offered some options to NA and not to Europe and vice versa? (The color options come to mind as well)...you'd think VW would keep it simple and build one car and offer the same options for everyone. But nooooooooooooo....
