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.
I have the same issue with ours it works fine, but the only time we ever really use it is like stuck in traffic on a nice day or something, anything above 50 mph and the glass rattling against itself is loud and the vacuum it creates in the interior is annoying
