Mein Auto: 2013 Audi S4 2010 MT MCS
I will never buy another vehicle with a panoramic roof that operates like the one in our X3. My wife has a pano roof in her MCS (same company) and hers never has all the problems ours has.

My biggest beef is the oscillation that is created at speeds over 70 mph. The glass either rattles so much you wait for it to shatter or the other fun one is when it creates a vacuum pressure that hurts your ears unless you crack another window. I could do a 100 mph plus in any of my other cars: Porsche, RX-7, GTI rabbitt, etc..... and NEVER did they make all the fuss the pano in the X3 makes. It becomes pretty much unusable at highway speeds.

They dont need a recall they need a design change. Of course it does the same thing in the new X3, I checked.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
