    Not sure if the holes the right size, but on the Scirocco I did it using an aluminium headset top-cap from a mountain-bike. Penny washer on the other side of the glass and bolt through with a squeeze of sealant or an o-ring to seal it up. Works well, looks good and cost sod all (plain black one's about £3 from halfords iirc, I had one lying around.) Gotta say it's not as subtle as A3-lee's suggestion though, that is nice looking.

    Edit, this is what it is if you're not familiar with bike stuff:

    How about a rear wiper motor? They seal the hole perfectly and double as a way of cleaning the window of water, Win/Win

    Sigh... Mine came de wipered, and I hate it. I'm getting a wiper fitted this week and the bung that's in there looks pretty good.

    Will get pics.
