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.
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?
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!
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.
