e46 Sunroof help...greater Boston/northern NE

Hi all...

I have an 01 e46 325it sport manual. I have a sunroof problem (surprise, surprise). Had the typical sunshade issue, so I did the DIY...now I have trouble with the sunroof leaking. Leaks at the passenger front corner, down the A pillar.

Two of Boston's best indie BWM specialists have tried to fix it.

A. Shop in Boston fixed it...until I opened and closed the sunroof, then it started leaking again.
B. Shop just north of Boston found the drains were clogged. Blew them out and when they tested it at the shop, no leaks. On the way home, I open/close the sunroof, boom, it starts leaking again. Take it back, they cannot recreate the problem.

Shop #2 suggested taking it to ?Sunroof Doctors? in NH. Said they used to fix all the sunroof issues for Tulley. It's a franchise, and not crazy about having to drive 90 minutes one way to get it fixed. But I need the sucker fixed as I want to sell the car. If there is an indie that you know of that is a rockstar at fixing BMW sunroofs, I would appreciate it. I don't have the time to fiddle with it myself.

Sidenote: My driveway is on a slight downward slant, towards the passenger side. However, the sunroof worked previously, so I don't think my driveway is the culprit here.

Thanks
Techie

PS. Community FYI: Shop just north of Boston told me they don't open or close sunroofs when testing them, which I think is ridiculous. And, I had to convince them (like 3x) to elevate the rear of the car to better approximate my real life conditions. Buyer beware.
