    Just to throw it out there,

    I ought to be able to open and close the panoramic sunroof via the smartphone app:

    -When I've opened it up earlier in the day and the rain is coming my way, I can close it from my office.
    -On hot days when I want to let out the heat before starting the air conditioning.

    Back when I had my GLI you could tweak it to hold the lock button to roll up the windows or unlock to take them down. Locking also closed the sunroof. I can't see why Tesla couldn't do similar.

    Annoying feature. If you sit on your fob at your desk, the windows open. Then it rains. (This has actually happened to me but fortunately I noticed before the rain got heavy!)

    Tesla should use the rain sensor already installed in the windshield to automatically close the windows and roof of an unoccupied car in the event of rain. If they don't do this, I'll just refuse to buy the car. :)

    Exactly. That's an excellent idea.

    CG must be getting stupidly cheap. That looked very real!

    I inquired as to why they did not do this for my BMW convertible and the answer was that it took too much battery power to run the sensor while the car was off. Drained the 12V.

    There are advantages to having 85kWh under the hood....
