    I use mine on a daily basis (weather permitting) as well. Actually, my car has been in the body shop since October 24th (I was rear-ended by a 4Runner) so I'll let you know about cold weather usage when I get it back (scheduled for Friday next week.)

    When parked in hot weather, I open mine to 15% all the time. When driving it's closed.

    I love it....but rarely use it.

    Ok, just found a New Year's Resolution that might be easy enough to keep past this week. Lol

    My prior two cars (owned for 13 years) were convertibles. I rarely put the top up (except for rainy days or when parking). I drive with the pano open and all windows open as often as possible, even during our oppressive Florida summers.

    I still miss my convertibles. Elon, we don't need a truck, we need a convertible (and yes, I will be anxiously waiting to see what the new roadster looks like).

    Don't use it very often but it is nice to have, kinda like the power lift on the trunk lid.
    We do exercise it at least once a month to keep it moving.
    I was waiting on someone a couple of weeks ago, 25 degrees and opened it up for a few minutes and enjoyed the fresh air.

    hardly ever, only open it to exercise it once in awhile. Got the pano because I want to install roof racks at some point for toys. ;)

    Opened it regularly a few times a week when I first got the car. Must admit though haven't opened it very much (at all ) in the last 6 months.

    I usually only open mine when I show it off. I definitely like it a lot more than the non-pano roofs due to the extra headroom for basically every seat. I have a tan interior, white headliner, and the pano, and my friend's car with the tan, white, non-pano seems more cramped.
    I don't know if I would do the all glass or the pano given the choice, but either are better than the solid roof.

    We rarely open the Pano roof and we would prefer the glass roof. Sadly, this is not an option because we need to be able to install a rack and this is only possible with the Pano roof.

    I've had my P85 for 4 years and 80K miles - and plan to purchase the next Model S (unless we get an X) with a sunroof.

    During the summer, it's convenient to put the roof in "vent" mode to keep it cool, though the new overheat protection may be as effective.

    Unless it is raining or the weather is cold, I often drive short trips with the roof open and the windows down, as mentioned before, making it close to a "convertible" experience.

    If we end up getting an X as our P85 replacement, I will miss having the sunroof.

    We use it all the time, but on our 3 we will get the solid glass roof because it looks amazing.

    All the time, but pretty much only because I have a 3 year old who will ask for it to be opened constantly.

    Open it every chance we get! We even park the car's and leave it at about 25% Open or have it in Vent mode.

    This is me, too. I'm still on the lookout for you in your new blue P100D!

    I love the pano roof. When it's warm I usually have it open to 20%. Occasionally all the way.

    I mainly put it in Vent mode on hot days, especially when parked outdoors. Other than that - once in a while.
