Hi All
Finally got a chance today to try out my Panoramic sun roof and it's first class, looking forward for the summer sunshine to get it fully open.

Hi Bill. Agree with you about the roof. I had the Pano roof on my scirocco and all that did was tilt. Also brings a more airy feeling to the cabin.

Hi Bill. Definately agree. Only had the car a week but the roof makes a huge difference to how bright the car is. Love the electric sunshade as well. Have you tried the convenience locking on the car as this closes the sunshade as well as the roof.

I love the panroof too, but i'mafraid you will be disappointed the first time you will fully open it, because of the wind noise. Cruising at 30/40 mph is ok, but at higher speeds my roof goes (fully) close.

Wont be disappointed Guy 40MPH is plenty fast enough when you are looking up at the mountain tops
in Glencoe.

hi there
has anyone ever been bothered by too much light/radiation/heat in the car due to the panoramic sunroof?
And, conversely, what about the temperature in winter? Does it get cold near that big sunroof?

Hi Qactus
Very much depends which country you live in
no problem with Pan roof in Scotland
I love the light it lets in and the fresh air when it's opened.
Regards

T'was officially 32*C today on the way home with the DIS showing an outside temp of 35*C. Whilst it was hotter than it would have been in our local product, it wasn't a problem. The climate control was set to 19*C and auto with the roof and blind closed and the fan speed was gradually reducing, indicating that the internal temp was at the set point. I could have turned the temp down lower but didn't really feel the need. I still felt warm and could tell it was a warm out but I think that is more due to the leather seats than anything else.

We've been through 40*C+ days since taking delivery in mid Jan. and SWIMBO hasn't complained about it being too hot - but maybe we're just used to the heat!

Do those without the pano roof find it is quite dark in the back on S-line models due to the black roof lining??

Alternatively, do those with the pano roof find it quite hot, or overly bright in the back (more from a child/baby perspective)??

Hi
If it's to hot open the Pan roof a bit further and if you want the shade just close the blind, best of both worlds

Is the shade like having a solid roof above, or is it not overly effective?

I'm worried about cooking the kids in the back, which is a shame as i really want a pano roof!

Hi smo
The roof blind is black and perforated with a brushed aluminium leading edge, it can be stopped at your desired position and when the Pan roof is on tilt the blind can be fully closed, letting the air in but keeping the light out, I believe the roof glass has an anti glare built into it so the light comes through but not the strong sun rays, I personally would not have ordered the car without it.

Regards

Thanks Bill, it looks like it will make it lighter in the back without cooking the inhabitants!

Thought that you may find this youtube clip interesting, albeit it's from a car with a lighter coloured roofliner...
