The panoramic sunroof is a great feature. But it essentially means that the entire top of my car is black. How do you keep all that black glass spot and streak-free?

It's no issue from my experience with panos for last many years and is easier to maintain than a painted roof quite frankly. I wish the FSport was available with a pano but it's not so I no longer have one.

It's glass. I just use glass cleaner. It's so much easier to keep clean than paint. No bird dropping worries, either,

I just use clean water and a terry cotton towel. I found that putting in a few drops of white vinegar takes away any water spots. same for windshield...

Glass cleaner.

The best glass cleaner I've ever used by the way is this:

One of the issues I have always had with cleaning glass is lint from my towels. I have found this product leaves a smooth finish on the glass kind of like a quick detailer does on paint, which lets me buff them clean with no streaks without them being grabby and picking up lint. It will help with water spotting too.
