I have not experienced this in decades. Not with Mazda, not with Audi, not with BMW. The weight/headroom issue: fair enough. The quality of a modern moonroof should not cause those other issues.

Consider yourself very lucky that you haven't had issues lately.

Update

Update on the moon roof delete (i.e. not deleted) issue.

Upon discovering the issue, I immediately contacted the head of BMW NA along with the dealer sales manager (he was also the one I dealt with on the deal). They were both great to deal with.

I think they would have been willing to reorder the car, but I would have had to return this car immediately and no loaner could/would be provided. This is my daily driver and my M235i was already sold.

They provided a limited slip differential (LSD), including the installation, as an accommodation. I just picked up the car earlier today.

The LSD was something I was planning to install anyway and had already purchased one. I will now sell that as it is not needed.

Nice, that's a hell of a deal to compensate.

Good for you, seems like an excellent win-win all things considered. Worthwhile reminding other folks that in situations such as this it's often a lot less expensive for BMW to give you parts and labor versus cash compensation. They're out the wholesale value of the part and whatever they pay a tech hourly to install, pennies on the dollar compared to a straight cash to you. Much easier battle to fight and win.

This is a concern for me, mainly for track days though as I am tall. I'll need to test out the car with a sunroof and a helmet.

Yeah, and have also had about that many cars with a sunroof and no issues, a 2015 x1 being the most recent one. About 40% of my cars with sunroofs had issues. I've seen enough sunroof issues on friends cars as well to affirm the opinion that they are not a beacon of reliability. I guess you've had a streak of good luck with them.

If you really like sunroofs, than no reason not to get one, however if I have the option, I prefer cars without them.
