    I am driving thru a small rain this morning, and aware that the sunroof cannot be open (vent) during the trip. However, tested after the trip and the sunroof is working perfectly. So I wonder some condition about speed or raining will be restricted for controlling the pano. Unfortunately I'm not able to find it on manual.
    anyone know the condition? Thanks.

    I haven't tested this before, but it's possible that since the car has a rain sensor (for the rain-sensing wipers) that opening of the pano roof is disabled if rain is detected. A cool feature, if that's the case.

    I believe if you are traveling very fast (> 80mph?) the car will not let you open (or close) the sunroof, but in that case I think there is a message that appears onscreen.

    I didn't know that. I'll have to test it. Makes sense since the car does know when it's raining. Thanks for posting.

    Mine seems to frequently know that it's a torrential downpour when there's a light mist. I'm not sure I'd trust it to determine when I can and can't open my windows. :biggrin:

    Yes, my wipers go bonkers too. But they seem to do it less with 7.1
