Hahaha, a CF hood this is the first time I laughed all day. That's beautiful. If you are are just joking, thanks for the laugh.

If you are serious, then .

Your kidding right? The new M3 comes with a CF hood at no charge, theres a option for sunroof. Are you sure you bought a E92 M3 and not a E46?

Check the list out here:

You can save about 12.5 lbs for about $6400 with the CF hood.

wow 7 G's???!!! I really don't how those people make money by selling such expensive items( "unecessary" items )
On top of that Im willing to bet that if you add it to you M3, it will totally f*** up the nice contrast that exist between the CF roof and the aluminium Hood, it will be too much.

I see the CF hood just for nice looking, not for some gram gains

If somebody makes an Ericsson-style cf vented hood I'd be down for that...as long as it doesn't cost anywhere near $6k+ & the fitment is great! First thing I'd do is get it painted oem exterior & leave parts of the cf hood exposed (w/clearcoat on top obviously). I don't know about anywhere else but here in Texas summer heat it makes a difference w/additional vents on the hood. Back then when I had a Honda S2000, I bought a vented hood (J's Racing) & it made a noticeable difference in the summer time. Less sluggish, etc. due to vents letting hot-air come out. Just don't drive in the rain unless the hood has rain channels (Like Mugen)!

it was a joke. i just feel that the carbon fiber roof is more gimmicky than anything else, would have rather had the money invested in better brakes.
