Part number of carbon fiber roof?

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My father in law was putting up Christmas lights near the M3 on his roof. I was joking with him if he falls off the ladder to make sure he lands on the roof to total the car (so I can get the next one ).

I want to know the part number for the carbon fiber roof, so I can know how close our joking was.

This seems weird, but if I am reading Tischer's parts finder correctly, it's only $885.

41317179797 "roof panel COUPE, w/o sunroof"

The interesting part is that the metal roof with the sunroof opening costs more.

Hmm, maybe due to the mass quantity it kept the per unit of carbon fiber down?

I have seen that before. I guess the fact they make it like that instead of hand make etc. cost is low.

I get that their machines make it cheaper to make, but how is the steel one somehow more? Steel is dirt cheap and easy to manipulate.

Maybe it has something to do with inventory and demand? Like you said steel is easy to manipulate, ie. damages can be repaired and therefore not too many owner need to replace their metal roof. Compared to CF roof it can't be repair easily.

instead of ordering CF parts from third suppliers, BMW built their own CF factory around E9X era and only expanded during the i3/i8 development.
yes, those silly CF mirror caps are stupid $$ but overall big parts like the roof or chassis won't be crazy expensive since their cost to built has gone down dramatically since the opening of the facility
