Wow.... so tempting.

Anyone have an idea of how much labor would be involved to swap to a CF roof?

It looks like those people with E90's with a moonroof, will never get this mod? I would think that most people with E90's have a moonroof?

well i think if you get this mod, u'll be removing your moonroof. some people got e90s with a moonroof because it was on the lot like that. i am sure IND will get a few takers for this awesome product!

+1.

Wonderful idea and props to IND for offering this. However, I have a sunroof on my E90 and I am not getting rid of it. Love it.

On the bright side, I am assuming this CF can be installed on non-M cars. So that has to open up the market a bit.

Good luck.

hmmm...I actually ordered my e90 M3 without a moonroof, along with skipping almost all the other options also .

Wanted to go more sporty.

IND: Is that MyKmYk's 'Atlantis Metallic' e90 M3 in the photos??

i also am curious to see if this would work on a non M E90.

regarding the sunroof issue, what if an E90 owner has sunroof, can you build around it ? i think that would be most ideal. Or even E92 guys with sunroof can just have the rest of the roof done in CF and keep their sunroofs?

Possible or no ?

My friend had Vorsteiner E46M3 C/F roof in his "moonroof"ed E46M3.
He had to buy a couple of roof support (some straight metal bar go across the roof that non- moon roof E46M3 had) parts. And he took off moonroof all the way to have it.

But later Vorsteiner released moonroof cut out C/F roof for E46M3. So I'm sure it's possible IND to develop moonroof cutout C/F roof.

By the way, usually roof installation is more expensive than actual c/f roof price since they have to cut out roof, take front/rear windshields etc.

I read on here a sunroof adds ~ 48lbs. There's a thread on here that breaks down the weight of all the options -

The fold down rear seat in the CWP weighs a bit too.

IND is only planning on making a non-sunroof Carbon Fiber roof panel, but Vorsteiner is planning on making a carbon roof panel with a sunroof opening.

I was asking about the weight savings of this carbon fiber roof vs. the steel roof w/o sunroof.

Thanks guys!

We can have the roof made in 1x1 or 2x2 carbon fiber. They take 1 week to produce and we can ship anywhere in the world
