Well...I would do it myself as I have done about 20 in the last 4 years
But, depends on your patience and skill really, the sun visors & grab handles are a right pain, sometimes only option is to get a new one if you struggled to remove them. Take it to a dealer and it's a lottery whether you get a good techie doing the work or someone's first time, although most will have plenty of experience of these and for 85 then I would say let the dealer do it...assuming the leak is the outer sunroof frame foam seal.
If you choose to do it yourself, never try using a sealant as this makes problems worse in general, and means more to clean off if you have to do the foam seal. If not centralised the foam seal can miss the roof panel aperture and leak - so that's the most important thing, also to tighten uniformly (i.e. not to distort the roof panel when tightening).
Good luck!
