Thank you very much for your help. I think I am going to purchase one from emotormania.com, that is a good price. I do have one more question for someone with the top though. How does it work on your remote? Right now, if I single click the unlock button, it unlocks and single click the lock button it locks. What buttons do you use to operate the roof, sunroof and windows? If it is the lock/unlock buttons then how do you lock or unlock your car remotely? I am sure these are silly questions with obvious answers, but I am confused (not surprisingly I am blonde too!)
Here are basic info:
Holding down the button in either direction will operate the top as long as the button is held.
In one touch mode the operation is further enhanced as follows:
A short tap on "OPEN" will open the top completely and leave all windows down.
Two short taps on "OPEN" will open the top completely and then raise the windows up.
A short tap on "CLOSE" will close the top completely and raise all windows up.
Two short taps on "CLOSE" will close the top completely and leave all windows down.
A short tap on "CLOSE" with the roof already closed will automatically close the sunroof and all windows.

The programming is done using your center console, if you go through the installation manual it has operation instruction which is simple to follow. Also your lock and unlock will not change unless you change settings. by default it will fully open or close your top if you press button twice. Once you get the module and go through the installation manual, I'm sure you'll be a pro.
