Are there panoroof owners that would NOT order it again?

I have an older thread on roof choice already, but I want to focus more on those that have the pano-roof and really regret buying it. My order is finalized on May 6h.... My reasons for ordering it were mainly for the increased head room (tall family), and the more open feeling. I don't plan to ever open it. So the question is, who bought it but would buy a solid roof if they could do it all over again?

Sorry, I would like to try to make this a poll. If you have the pano-roof, can you answer with: Would buy again, or Would NOT buy again. Feel free to elaborate after your response. Thanks.

Would buy again - I live in sunnt Colorado and raely use the AC - it is all about fresh air and I live at 8,500'

I love it -- would definitely buy it again. Boston area.

Would buy again. Love it. DC area.

I love it also--would definitely buy it again. Denver area.

Wait a minute, I just ordered my 2nd Model S yesterday...I did buy it again!

So far, I really like it, but most of us haven't gone through much warm weather yet. Its a great source of light and helps to make the cabin feel open. I also enjoy getting a breeze without too much wind. I haven't had any creeking, leaking, or excessive heat.

Really love it and would buy again.


rdalcanto--Yes and yes. Love opening the roof (on the screen), love the extra headroom (I'm 6' 7"), and don't concern myself (at all) with no cover. A very nice addition!

Love it so far, and not having any of the creaking noises...yet. Lets see how it is an summer approaches.

I would definitely buy again. Its great on those winding mountain roads and when stuck in traffic, good way to avoid air conditioning too. Not so god on the freeway. I'm in the bay area so the climate is perfect for the pano roof.

skymaster: We, too, ordered our second MS early April! I wonder how many of us are out there.

And, yes, we also ordered it on our second. It's a great addition. I keep it open often, even down the freeway. I'm in CA, and so far it has not been too hot with the sun shining through. We're expected to be in the 90s today. I'll pay extra attention to the heat inside.

You may not "plan" to open it, but I imagine you're going to realize quickly just how nice it is open. :)

Love it--will definitly get it on our second order. Only problem; has been difficult closing at hightway speeds. A tail wind helps. Or if you are going to close it, pull over, or do it before getting up over 50 mph.

Got it, love it, would do it again.

AZ owner with Pano. It is getting very hot here (100F today). I would get the Pano again if I had to do it all over again. It very seldom creaks - not enough to drive me nuts.

I decided against the pano roof because I didn't like the shade as an after-thought. I have owned a few vehicles with moon-roof's, etc, however, they all had pull-out shades that were retrofitted into the headliner, and I can't stand extra heat on hot days. I also found that I rarely used my moon-roof on any of my past cars, and it adds extra weight to the vehicle anyway.

With that said, I really liked the idea of the pano-roof in the MS, as it really does make the cabin feel more open (especially in the rear seats). If I lived someplace where the weather was a bit cooler and less-sunny, I would likely opt to get it (once the bugs are worked out).

I would get it again. I don't open it fully that often, but the vent setting is nice for extra circulation. It's also helpful venting the roof from the app on hot days before you get back to your car - less power than using the HVAC.

Would buy again. Love it. Glad that the shade is basically built in (i.e. the heavy tinting). I always hated needing to pull over a separate shade.

I live in GA. I would buy it again.

Would buy again. Seattle.

Hmmm... seems 100% are for and zero are against the pano roof for those who have it. I guess it's going to be an easy decision for you.

I have it and would not order it again.
However, this is not because of our experience with the Pano roof as that has been nothing but good.
For me, it is not worth the extra weight, or higher cost. We got the original because my wife likes a sunroof and it is more impressive when showing the car. We show the car a lot and the roof is a big plus.
It blocks virtually all the heat and light, but as others have noted, we haven't had it through a summer yet.
When I order our second, it will not have the Pano roof.

I originally did not want the Pano roof because I almost never opened my sun/moonroof on my previous cars. I ended up getting it because I wanted the additional headroom. I'm very happy with the headroom, and without it the back seat was unusable for my boys at 6'.

I'm in CA and even for the few warm days we've had it has not been a problem. On my G35, I would close the shade when it was a hot day because the heat from the sun bothered me. Sadly this cut into my headroom, so I had a tendency to slouch.

So, the model is is good for my posture! And I would get the Pano roof again.

I enjoy it, no problems at all & would order it again.

I would order it again. Like many others have said, I never used my sunroof much in previous cars. In the MS, I really enjoy the extra light and the extra headroom.
I live in South Florida and we have already had plenty of very hot days here. I do not notice any additional heat coming in through the glass. The door handles are a different story - they get really hot.

Thanks everyone. I think it was on the MS vs Panamera thread that someone mentioned they would not order it again, so I got nervous. Your replies are helping me sleep better with my decision.

Yes would buy it again. A fix on the creak is (hopefully) coming.

Love it and would order it again. I use it all the time. My two favorite settings are 80% up to 70mph on highway, and 100% with two back windows open for up to 50mph, when it's hot outside.

Would but needs refinement. I think Tesla did a poor job with the sunroof and windows in regards to wind deflection. I find the sunroof and windows cause a lot of high pitched noise at moderate speeds when open.

Love it - no creaks, no leaks, and like that it is tinted for those sunnier days. With everyday driving the noise is no worse than my other moonroofs and I just turn up the radio. I have not tried it on the highway yet but it is easily adjusted as need be.

Working great for me. Would definitely buy it again.
