Good morning......my '21 Select did not have the pano roof.....my '23 Premium is the first car I've ever had with a pano roof......those of you with much more experience than me must have a secret way of cleaning the roof......do you wax, use a regular window cleaner, or something else??......would prefer a simple solution to the cleaning situation......right now I wash the roof when I wash the car, rinse, then dry.....

I have a 2021.

I have never done anything extra to clean the roof.

It’s kinda like washing your legs in the shower; who has time for that and what’s the point? 😜

I don't have a glass roof, but if I did I would probably use something like Rain-X on it just for that swanky water beading. I have used it on my windshield and appreciate the effect it has.

Yes exterior......I will continue with the same procedure, washing it as though it was a non pano roof, haha.......as I said, never having had that type of roof, I didn't know if there was special treatment......sometimes the answer is the simple one, haha.....thanks for the responses....

I use this product (pic below). After I’m done washing, I dry with a blade to get 80% of the water off, then spray this product and dry with a microfiber towel. It does need another pass with a clean towel after a few minutes. I also use it on side windows but use Rain-X on windshield and lift gate as I find that Hydro View doesn’t do well with wiping.

I use Meguiars spray on ceramic hybrid on the whole car including the glass. It has worked very well. The first coast is spray around 3 times on a panel while wet and work it with a microfiber cloth then buff with a clean cloth. Second time, 6 month later, spray on a wet surface, spread it with water spray, dry and buff.

I used Adam's Graphene Ceramic Coating on both the roof glass and car body.

You can probably pick any of the products the other posters listed. I use something similar, and like them, Just use it on the entire exterior including glass. It does a great job on the glass, much better than the glass-specific cleaners I have. Wipe on and wipe off, with only a very light buff. I don't want to spend a lot of time cleaning my car, but do like it clean.

Wash as normal. I do put a coat of wax on it when I wax the car.

Wash it. Clay bar (or mitt) with lubricant. Rinse. Dry. Surface prep (alcohol spray). Graphene coating. Keep dry for a couple of days.

Say WOW! the next time you wash or it rains.

BTW: repeat process for all painted surface and glass.
