Pulled the trigger!!!

A current 335i owner, I just put my deposit down on a 2009 M3 Coupe. Expect to see it in July. Space gray with exteneded fox leather, DCT, premium, Technology package, and enhanced sound.
I am back and forth on the carbon fiber roof vs. the moonroof option. Any thoughts from those with carbon roofs? Do you regret your choice? The only time I use it my 335 is when I first get in the car to vent out the hot air otherwise is stays shut. I am trying to get by without using it in my current car to see if I can survive. I am also worried about resale value without a moonroof?
Thanks in advance....

Congrats!!!

I opined over that option until the last minute...I had an e46 M3 with the moonroof and thought I would be abandoning a key component to warm-weather fun. I decided on the carbon fiber (mostly b/c i'm a huge m6 fan and my trusted friend said it would be a value-retention selection with a 6spd) and took delivery in Oct so I didn't notice the difference until last week when i finally experienced 80 degrees in the city...I miss it, but i still think it was the right decision.

Thanks for your input. It seems like most people have the moonroof or if they have a carbon roof they love it. I am really leaning towards the CF roof. Anyone out there get the $400 anti-theft system? What does it add to the car?

Believe it or not, but the anti-theft alarm was the only option that I added on my e90 M3. The standard M3 already has something that immobilizes the engine if someone trys to steal it, but the siren or alarm will not go off if you don't get the option. In my opinion, the anti-theft alarm is important.

I'd get the CF roof. Having an e90 I wish it was an option for me. I think it will actually help the resale as it emphisizes the motorsport heritage of the car.

+1 If the e90 had a carbon fiber roof, that would be so very cool! I would be all over it if it were an option on the sedan.

If you're worried about resale value, you're ordering the wrong car.
