Pano sunroof. I live in Houston. Tons of ambient light and good weather to use the sunroof everyday.

I'm going with AFHS. It already comes with a standard size moonroof, so at least there's something to let out the cabin heat on warm days. Even in sunny California I'm going to choose safety and better nighttime driving conditions. Though I do wish they could've had an option that included both. It would've been nice to see the redwoods or stars at night from the back.

Put me down for the adaptive headlights, too. I hardly ever use my sunroof now, can't stand the sun beating down on me and my wife doesn't like it, either. In our case, the pano sunroof is just unnecessary weight while the adaptive headlights could actually keep us out of trouble sometime.

Every vehicle I've owned in the last 20 years has had a sunroof. I've never used any of them. The adaptive headlights looks like technology that will actually make driving at night on the rural and mountain roads where I live safer. That's why I ordered them on the RAV4 I expect to get in a couple weeks.

Standard parts means you can likely swap out the AFHS. The only question is, do they have the hybrid DRLs or the gas DRLs.

I have never experienced Adaptive LED Front Headlights so I can't say how much value they would provide but I've had moonroofs and, for me, they provide very little value. Even times when I think it would be good to use it, I have it open for a few minutes and then close it because of either the wind noise or the glare on the dashboard is annoying.

I have the adaptive headlights and I think they are very much worth it. The visibility is fantastic around the corners and the self leveling is great going up and down hills. The standard moonroof is fine with me.

I live where the streets are on a grid and there are street lights in most places. It is mostly flat here. If I travel up north there are more curves, hills and less street lights but I only travel up north maybe 6- 8 times a year at most. Is it worth having the adaptive headlights or would I get more out of having the panoramic moonroof in your opinion? I am enjoying the panoramic moonroof which I have now in my hybrid and am keeping my car but I just want to know how many of you think I made the right decision getting the panoramic moonroof.

I picked the panoramic sunroof. I'm in Phoenix. I hope to have my lights switched out to the swivel headlights to have my cake, and eat it too.
