Panorama roofs are not what they are all cracked up to be....unless you like driving in a greenhouse. They add a tremendous amour of heat in the car (in the summer) and cause the vehicle to take longer to heat up in the winter. Yes, the extra light in the interior is unbeatable, but coming out of a pan-roof in a Q7, I am delighted to be going back to a conventional sunroof (the 5 seems like a nice compromise since it is a bit larger than most).
Re the vinyl roof, I agree with the Photoshop suggestion. I can't picture it and would hate to see a look that might simply "not belong". When I think vinyl roofs, I think 1980s vintage Oldsmobile Cutlass Supremes, Chrysler New Yorkers, or mid 1970s Ford Thunderbirds! (I know what you have in mind is different, but "I'm just sayin'.......")
