Yeah, I've noticed it. Seems to be a lot of heat coming in through the slats at the front of the cover for the sunroof. Its good for natural light, but the thin space between the glass roof and the cover heats up like an oven. In previous cars this area was fully sealed, but now this hot air seems to make it's way into the cabin.

I'm thinking of covering it with some sort of reflective tape, but wondering if there's a more important reason for it being there, i.e. letting the heat out so the sunroof doesn't explode (this did happen in the e9x apparently).
