    Thumbs up Cleaning Opensky?

    Anyone have any tips for cleaning the opensky sunroof system on my sportback?

    The whole roof is made of glass btw.

    Have got the equivalent on our Mini, just wash, rinse, chamois and occasionally use the old blue spray on window clean stuff, works fine for us. There is a product which deflects water off glass which I hear is good but not tried it as yet.

    On glass areas like side windows and Opensky here's what I do:

    Clean thoroughly.
    Clay as you would normal bodywork, using a light compund such as Meguairs QuikClay.
    Use a synthetic sealant such as Jeffs

    Doing this guarantees you an "as-new" finish and as long as you don't go overboard with the sealant clarity will be great with awesome water beading and runoff. As it's glass and not paintwork where you would be looking to build up successive coats, you can clay almost as often as you like.
