Carbon Fiber Roof Issues?

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. Just wanted to introduce myself here and wanted to say that this is a really awesome site for BMW enthusiasts. I'm Tony by the way. I currently have a 2003 E46 M3 titanium silver , ordered my 2011 E92 M3 mineral white competition package 4 weeks ago and waiting for shipping to the US (car is built but waiting to be shipped). Wanted to know if any one has had any problems with their carbon fiber roof (fading, cracking, peeling, scratching, leaking, etc.)? Thank you in advance for your replies.

Tony

Hey Bomis. Thank you for your reply. Do you park you car outside at work or inside a parking garage everyday? Is it in the sun a lot is what I'm asking.

30 months, parked outside during the workday, no issues with the roof. Also I haven't seen any issues posted here, I'm sure would have seen complaints if anyone was having a problem with the roof.

I heard there were some problems on some of the E46 M3 CSL roofs, but BMW fixed whatever it was when they designed the M6 and E92 M3 CF roofs.

Good to hear the positive feed back. I was really worried about the Texas sun beeming down on the roof. Where I'll be parking it will be underneath large oak trees with lots of shade but most of the morning sun will be directly on top of the roof.

No problems so far. Garaged at night but parked in the open at work. Granted so cal isn't crazy hot like Texas but we do get our fair share of sunshine.

Mine is parked outside everyday in the Florida sun and garaged at night. No issues with it. And it looks so sick after you detail the car. 30 coats of Zaino and the CF looks like it is 5 inches deep.

Good news, I just checked status online and my car has shipped and in route to U.S. should hit U.S. soil on the 13th of Oct. and at my dealership by last week of Oct. Can't wait, haven't been able to sleep much. Thanks for everyone's replies.
