Hi<div id="LCS_FE1DEEEA_DB6D_44b8_83F0_34FC0F9D1052_communicationDiv">
I was interested in other owners views on the panoramic window and do you have them up or down? I cannot get use to them up as it seems too bright but wondered what others thought?
Also, the stop - start for me is erratic to say the least. Sometimes it doesn't cut out. Does anybody else have this problem?

Thankfully I dont have the stop start system as previous experience was rather frustrating!
Regards the panoramic window it depends on what time of year it is. When the suns low it can be too bright but as the days are lengthening its great for visibility. When touring Wales or Scotland its a real bonus to see the scenery and sky, bright and airey

I keep my blinds down as well ,I feel like I'm sitting on top of the dash with them up .
The start stop problem , I would get your battery tested, if it's not fully charged the start stop doesn't work . If the car has stood for a while before you had it the battery could have run down and if it was left flat the battery gets damaged . The dealers know this but hope they can fob you off because of the expense . Had the same problem with a car the wife had, had real hard time getting it changed because it's not covered on warranty because the damage is the dealers fault .

Always have my blinds up. I think stop/start is very good, hardly notice mine. It sometimes will not cut in or it will restart whilst idle if you have something on that puts a demand on the engine, i.e air con, heater, de-mister, in order to protect the battery discharging.

I agree with SBK61...when the visors are up it feels as if you are driving whilst sitting on the dash...

As regards any stop/start...I was told when being trained up as a apprentice mechanic that the time an engine suffers the most wear is within the first 10 minutes of driving...and the worst possible thing a owner could do is start the engine and literally move off immediately as it doesn't allow time for the oil pressure to build up.
With stop/start that's exactly what happens each time you move away so I would be interested if we start seeing increases in camshafts and other top end bits failing that get starved of oil pressure each time the car pulls away.

Up, it's easier to see the traffic lights here in the Netherlands when you're stood at the line :)

Have to say shades up, as a tall person I find Citroens panoramic screens a boon, had similar on Grande Picasso, always up, let in the light!

Mine is on Viagra! Always up :D

I love the view out front with the blinds up! such a contrast to my missus Mini which is like looking through a letter box in comparison.

The only bit I hate is when it rains and only 2/3rds of the screen are wiped. The application of Rain-X has helped to improve that though.

+1 for the Rain-X works well.

Up feels like sitting on the front of a rollercoaster so always down for me but think it a good feature.<div id="LCS_FE1DEEEA_DB6D_44b8_83F0_34FC0F9D1052_communicationDiv">
Thanks for info on stop-start. Only got the car in January so battery should be good but have noticed a huge improvement now the weather is warmer.
Still haven't mastered the release of the handbrake when engine is off for going through a pull through car wash but stop-start takes care of this issue.
