Panoramic Sunroof

If anyone has any pictures of an F56 with panoramic sunroof, both from the inside and outside, open and closed, please would you post the pictures?

Thanks
SM

Thanks Patch, but I can't really see a difference between normally opened and fully opened, would you mind explaining the difference please?

Thanks so much for the pictures, it helps me make up my mind.

Regards
SM

When you open the sunroof, by default it will open at roughly 90%. You can then re-press the open button to have it fully opened.

According to past cars experience, the first stop (at 90%) is usually the sweet spot where the wind isn't too disturbing at higher speed. Opening it at 100% is more for cruising downtown at slow speed.

By the way, I don't know if it related with the panoramic sunroof or not, but there is no dome light for the back seats. At night, that makes it hard to see anything on the back seat. I just had some fun getting my 2yo daughter out from her baby seat

Small design flaw : I found that the rear sunscreen (when fully opened) rattles a bits on bumpy roads. Closing it an inch solved the rattle.

Just as a word of caution, it should be made clear that only the front portion tilts - unlike the version on the previous model where the front and rear sections tilted. This may not be an issue to most, but when I called into the dealership to collect mine recently - there was a lady who was expressing her disappointment, that no one had informed her that the design had changed !!
