Nonetheless, sun roof or not, leave any vehicle in the sun and that baby is gonna cook.
I rode at around 12:30 pm, and the sun was shining straight down on us through the pano roof. I looked up to get a feel for how bad it would be. I didn't notice it at all -- the glass was actually on the cool side, and the cabin temp was perfect. I assume I'll end up rarely using the sunshade because it was a very strong tint preventing the brightness from coming in, and heat wasn't an issue at all.
I agree with Arnold. I drove around 1:30 and it was very hot outside and I didn't even notice the pano roof being an issue. It blocked the heat just fine. In my opinion, it is a MUST option.
On more observation. The white one that I testdrove had the carbon fibre spoiler. I thought it was cool.
Here you can see the brake lights at the top.

Link to video of my test drive. Of note at 12 minutes in is floored acceleration going up hill. Brown, NON- performance version.
After reading most of this forum, and watching so many videos myself before, I have to say I felt I already knew what to expect. The most thrilling feeling is the quiet rush of acceleration - like taking off in jet airplane without the noise!

Such is the Performance / cost issue dilemma for so many of us, as we wait.
