    Is it like a pulsing that affects your eardrums quite a bit? If so I've never had a sunroof equipped car that didn't do it.

    Haven't had a sunroof for years now simply because of that.

    Correct like that pulsing effect - i guess you just have to have another window slighty open to have the sunroof open...

    Its just an air pressure build up. With the Golf the roof opens to a position where buffeting is minimal, or you can make it open completly. The faster you go the more it hurts your ears. The A4's i've been looking at don't have them so i'm thinking of having one retro fitted at a later date

    It's because the vents in the boot (if they're in the boot on an Audi) are not opening enough. on my Mondeo I took the covers off them and that helps, if you have a look at them you may find you can prop them open to relieve the pressure.

    You've just answered your own question

    Used to happen in my Golf with the sunroof open. Open a rear window a few mm, problem solved.

    This happens in every car, even an old Sierra I had used to do it.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    I remember a couple of guys on the uk-mkivs.net forum posting about sunrooves and rear windows blowing out, bit extreme but that was somehow linked to pressure build-up.

    So, probably best to go for the open window solution......

    It starts (on mine) from about 35mph, through to about 50-55mph, then stops.

    Therefore the trick is never drop below 55mph !
