Moonroof question

I'm interested in buying a new 135i coupe but I'm unclear as to exactly what the "moonroof" does. My understanding of moonroofs is that they can only be closed off or tilted, as opposed to sunroofs which open up to fully expose the opening. However, I certainly could be wrong, as I've never owned a car with either to date. My question is, does the 135i moonroof open all the way up, or does it just tilt? Help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

It opens all the way. Also can just tilt up for a vent.

I heard the difference between a sunroof and a moonroof is the glass. Sunroofs come with dark tinted glass; moonroofs come with lightly tinted/no tint glass. Could be way off though.

Thanks so much... this puts my mind at rest. I've always bought cars for fuel economy (hence, my Civic Hybrid currently), but driving is one of my favorite activities and I want something just for enjoyment for once. The fully opened moonroof is a plus! Although, my best guess is that I'm going to have to go aftermarket on the stereo system (I'm a bit of an audiophile), since the "premium hi-fi" option doesn't sound like it's going to cut it... but, one thing at a time.
