Also, for those that need to service their sunroofs, remember that to PROPERLY do this on our (old) cars, you really do have to remove the sunroof panel first.
This goes for both the sliding and the tilting sunroofs.

Remove the top rails (easy, only the top covers of the rails really, some Phillips hea dscrews but NOT THE ONES AT THE VERY FRONT as they are for adjustment of height of the panel.
Clean as above. Replace. Not doing this grease risks breaking your sunroof.

Along the rails and on moving parts like hinges.
Less is more. Clean before and after so as not to leave lumps of grease to collect dirt.
Recommended at every oil change, some do it every year.

So I looked around...
Also, this is touted as a great alternative that can also be used on window regulators and wiper transmission gears...

The VW sunroof paste P/N is G 000 450 02. A 90 gram tube costs roughly $30 in the US. FWIW Webasto supplied sunroof assemblies to VAG as well as MB.

Also, the BMW Sunroof Grease is a worthy substitute, if not as robust. The only difference (I can see) between the BMW and MB Grease (besides the significant price diff) is that the BMW grease doesn't seem to hold up anywhere near as well to UV/heat exposure. I accidentally left my freshly-lubed sunroof rails outside during a 92F day in direct sunlight and by evening, the BMW grease was VERY dark in color, and didn't seem to work anywhere near as well. Haven't had this issue with the MB grease.
For this reason, I probably would use the BMW grease if you have a metal panel sunroof, and NOT use it if you have a glass sunroof. My .02
