I echo the statements by others regarding the open & airy feel that the pano brings to the cabin.

Also, as my F-Type has the Black Pack, I feel that the pano roof complements and completes the look.

As others have commented personal choice for me I tested car without pano roof I liked the interior roof detail but cabin felt dark, tested car with pano roof was no brainier for me ok I loose some roof detail but gain more light and option to close if I want, I have black pack on my car and love the way the black pano window continues through the top of the car

It's an interesting mix of agreeing that a pano roof spoils the look, followed by a complete contradiction that it enhances the look :lol:

As with all such posts, we're all different, and that's a good thing. There's no right or wrong answer. It's just personal preference.

I like my cabin just fine without the light and airy feel (it's a gorgeous place to sit). No feelings of darkness or claustrophobia - at least not until you mentioned it !

But I'll be honest, it's made me very curious to sit in a cabin just to see what the difference is like. Hopefully I'll get to try at a meet.

Appreciate all the input 👌🏻

I think it transforms the car. It makes the cabin feel light & spacious, and without, it feels cramped and dark. Spoken to a number of salesmen at A/D’s and they all tell me that without the pano roof a used car is much more difficult to sell, and hence worth much less than the cost of the roof when specified new.

When I was looking out for an F-type, I especially wanted one without the pano roof. I had a similar panel on one of my old cars. And allthough I loved riding it on a clear night under the stars, I cursed the glass roof driving it in a hot summer or in the South of Europe on holidays.

As for the looks it depends on the color I think. Personally , looking at my car, I prefer the roof in body color. It shows the body lines beautifully.
As for the people getting claustrophobia. Go seeing a psychologist :-) :-) . I like sitting in a dark enclosed interior as low to the floor as possible. It gives me a cozy and safe feeling ;-) :-)

Agreed. Pano roof on a black car wouldn't detract. But for me that's the one exception. Enjoy smug mode :lol:

Each to their own but it's a must have in an F-Type for me. As mentioned, transforms the cabin feel and I always want a car interior to be as bright and airy as possible. I very rarely close mine and you do look out through it for instance when driving in the Alps. It's actually often also a bit handy to see traffic lights.

Looks wise I always thought the car looks better with the pano roof... one aligned black top surface of the windshield, pano roof and rear window. If I had bright F-Type without the pano roof I'd probably wrap it black for the looks.

Nicely articulated and I agree with every word. Especially cursing hot summers, claustrophobia and being enclosed, low and cosy 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
