Hey rebrewer - good call! The recalibration got rid of 98% of the noise - I expect a little just because of the flexing with that huge roof of glass. Thanks again for the info!

Nice, glad that helped. I do it about twice a year along with cleaning.

As a follow up - after doing the recalibration, I started to get some slight creaking noises again as the weather got colder. This week I opened the sunroof, sprayed some of this WD-40 Silicone Gel on a microfiber towel, and rubbed the rear edge of the forward section and the front edge of the rear section, where the two panels meet when closed. I wiped it good, cleaned the area, and applied a coating of the gel, It has been 100% silent all week, even as temps continued to drop.

Hope this helps others - this is the product I used - picked it up at Lowe's for $8.

Gummi Pflege, which is a common automotive door seal lubricant is probably also an excellent choice for this, but I haven't tried it on the Pano roof yet.

Mine is quiet and cool even with the sun beating down on it. I wonder, did Porsche use their Laminated Soundproof and Heat-Insulated glass on the panoramic roof for more efficient reflection of infrared radiation?

It's an Option for the side and rear glass, but maybe Porsche always uses it for the roof because of the potential heat (and noise) issue.

My Panoramic Roof glass has a distinctive bronze coating and I'm willing to bet Porsche used their Laminated Soundproof and Heat-Insulated glass up there.
