Sunroof on F56

Hoping to finalise my order for a new (and first) Mini Cooper on Tuesday and although I hadn't considered one I am now thinking about upgrading to a panoramic sunroof.

When the sunroof is closed is the car a lot noisier than a standard roof?

Unless I am deceived by the video I've seen online the sunroof appears to open quite a long way and not just a couple of centimeters! Does anyone have any pictures (internal and external) that show off what they look like please?

thanks guys,

Youre asking questions about the latest new new MINI so I think not many people will have had the experience on those yet and hopefully the sunroof is now a much improved design and nothing like that fitted to the R56 and thus getting rid of all the problems folk who have that on their car.

If you want to know what its like, go and have a demo at the dealers, take one out and try it for yourself, they will be only too pleased to do this if they think you might be placing an order for one.
I dont think you will get the answer you want yet from owners on here as there arent that many around yet?
