Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

Correct IR is the heat you feel. Here's the crystalline information

Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

I do agree that the pano and the sunshade open you can actually feel the heat. Ive contemplated getting it tinted specially now that summer is right around the corner.

Now when the sunshade is closed i do not feel any heat on my 14. I feels it keeps the heat out just right.

Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

I'm pretty sure there is no difference between the shades on the 2011's to the new 2015's. One guy above said the new one is flimsy. Not true at all, they are the same. And if it's flimsy then there is a problem, maybe it was installed correctly or whatever. I have also had both years.
When my car is parked the shade is always closed and the shade does a great job of keeping the heat out. When I'm parked outside at work on a summer day with the shade closed and my covercraft UVS windshield shade on the interior stays reasonable, and cools quickly when I start it.

Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

I thought I had read some posts on here that it's not recommended to tint the sunroof because it can cause the glass to break? I just took a quick look and can't find the posts but has anyone heard that? I was initially tempted to tint my pano but got scared off by what I read.

Yes there was that post... Not sure of the truth behind it though... I've been good through two NC summers

Re: Heat rejection of Pano Sunroof

Well that's a pretty good test then. The summer heat down there is no joke. I'll have to try to do some more research.

I've been in S Florida for 10+years and it gets a bit hot here on occasion and every car has had the sunroof tinted. My pano has been tinted for 2.5 years with no problems. The tint shop I use has been in business for a LONG time and has never had a sunroof break from tint.
