i definitely wished it slid further back...still, love the pano roof.
Wow; didn't realize it doesn't open as much as in past; no bueno. :|Yeah, same here. I don't feel like I'm exposed to much sun with it's smaller size and inability to fully slide open. If I were the wealthy guy in the back being driven around I don't think I'd have much of an interest in a sun pane that doesn't even slide open either (it's just stationary glass with a sliding fabric cover), so I personally would opt out of this whole panoramic roof situation if i could.
That's the only way to do a 2 section sliding Pano Roof. One has to go over the other. The rear section on the G12 is fixed as it is a structural component.My Audi A8L does this, slides OVER the second glass roof. Does the BMW's rear glass at least pop up? my audi does but you can only pop the rear roof up when the front roof is closed or popped up, for obvious reasons.
