What structural effects does cutting out the steel roof and installing the CF roof have? Is it the same rigidity as the stock E92 CF Roof?
Have you noted in changes positive/negative in rigidity?

That is beautiful.

But it looks pretty close to Subaru's World Rally Blue

Yeah, the World Rally Blue is much darker while Atlantis is like a mix of teal and blue.

Also, I didn't know AB looks that good under the sun as I always thought it looked out of place on the regular 3-series.

It looks close to me in some of the pics.

But I will agree, with the sun shots you can see a lot more teal

Hell, I like this blue more

This is surely the sickest M3 on the forum! Maybe even in the whole world!
This is the car I will be dreaming of my whole life... Myke and IND, you have style

I would love to see a video with more exhaust-sounds!

EDIT: do you also have wallpaper-sized pics? 1680*1050 or any higher?

Those have to be the sickest rims I've ever seen on an M3. No question.

...how to make others feel inadequate, would also be an appropriate title.

Very nicely done! Congratulations!

Changing the roof from OEM metal to Carbon will not improve rigidity substantially, but does save a few pounds in weight. To ensure that we made the roof correctly, a local composites manufacturer with many years of experience in ALMS constructed the roof for us.

The roof feels just like a factory roof while you're driving the car!

That is the best shot - Those colormatched brakes are insane.

Quick question - did you guys, and do you ever, apply any tint to the windshield?
