    Default Panoramic Windscreen - Astra option question

    I’ve just seen some pictures of the new Astra with the optional Panoramic windscreen. This looks fantastic and what a good idea.
    My question: Are there no sunvisors? Driving into the sunset would be very dodgy without, but in the pictures I saw, the windscreen ran from scuttle to B pillar in one continuous swoop with only the rear view mirror glued on – no visors.
    How does it work?

    I'd like to see that, it must be a bit a an engineering triumph, to extend from behind the B pillar over your head yet not wobble or vibrate about. I feel a trim to the dealer is on the cards - just for a look you understand!

    We have had one on order since April last year... And it has been delayed and delayed.

    Looks absolutely fantastic though.

    Personally I don't like it, wouldn't feel safe without some metal above my head!
