It came with 100% tint. I just shut the roof cover.... Or whatever the hell they call it.

Don't know what to tell you.

My 2015 Overland Panoramic Sunroof works great. I have no excessive wind noise or buffeting with it open (except at 40-45 MPH).

Sounds like you either don't know how to operate it or have other "issues".

There is NO problem with sunlight related to the sunroof. It has a SHADE. Don't want light... CLOSE IT. And Its just as quiet as the regular roof with it closed.

This is my 3rd vehicle with a sunroof and I won't purchase one without one.

I was in a Mercedes GLK350 and its sunroof shade was basically cheesecloth (i.e. perforated). There was no way to block out the light from above. WTF were they thinking?

I love my Jeep's pano, though I agree that a hard plastic pop-up air dam might be an upgrade. Cleaning the fabric deflector has always posed a challenge; however, it truly does cut the wind noise (just try pulling it down while driving at highway speeds and be struck by the difference).

"Open & Close" It's not a Moon shot to run the damn thing. Did you ever think they call it a "Sunroof" for a reason? Look, I'm being honest. The car had it, and I never had a vehicle with one. So I though living out here in the desert southwest it might be nice to have it. (I wouldn't have ordered it). Now that I've got it, I'm not seeing anything Earth shaking about it. It's OK, but like I said, it let's in so much light, I can't see the instrument panel. Especially if the Sun is to the rear.

I'm not going to pay an extra $1,000.00+ for a Sun roof, so I can pay more money to have the stupid thing "tinted" to make it more of a "Shade Roof". It's easier to leave the damn thing shut, and turn on the A/C. Which is what 3-1/2 million people do out here anyway when it's 110+. Lesson learned.
