To CF or not CF, that is the question!

With the carbon fiber roof, the spoiler is a nice compliment. I don't have it, but I've seen it and it looks good in all colors.

I think CF looks silly, it's played out... Pretty cool if you have the E92 with the CF roof, otherwise, I'm not big on it.

Personally, I think the only car (across the board) that looks good with CF is the Space Grey... Thought I have seen some members with different colors and CF who's car looks really great! But, they have other exterior mods.

I'm just not a big fan of the CF unless it's done right.

I think a roof spoiler would look nice with the carbon roof.

I think that the CF parts look best on a gray car; either Space Gray or Silverstone. The CF parts probably won't look too bad on the Jerez Black but I'd leave off the mirror caps, splitter and spoiler. The roof is one thing, because of weight considerations, even if they are small. But, the mirror caps don't look all that great in CF, the spoiler's too big and I'd rather have a different type of splitter than the one BMW offers. But, if you're happy with it that's what counts. Sorry, but I haven't seen any pics with these parts on a JB M3. I will say that if you get CF it's probably best to get OEM parts as opposed to third-party.


Cheers.

I'm a CF fan - I say do it, as long the CF material is a good quality.
