I can understand why. Not my fortay but if you want the car to look none fancy or if you get a scratch on the roof you do have options.

Come on, admit it....it is slightly wacky to put a weight-saving carbon roof in a car with power lumbar and width adjustment in both front seats, isn't it? Cool, but wacky....

Advanced technology aircraft have lots of CF but they paint it.
