Yes I enjoy not only the fresh air but also the light.
But the direct sun on the head can be treacherous...

If I am by myself. The noise is often too loud if the wife and kids are in the car to be able to carry on a conversation.

Yes, when I owned a 2000 VW Passat equipped with a sunbroof. I liked it opened in the "tipped mode". Since then, I've not had a sun roof/moon roof in any vehicle.

I had three cars in a row that had moonroofs and I barely ever opened them. Most of the time I kept the shade closed to keep the sun out.

I just got a new car and it does not have one, I am not really missing it.
