    1M carbon Fiber Roof

    @Nate@IND Any progress on the CF roof for the 1 series? This would be pretty good weight savings for the 135 guys due to being forced to have the sunroof. Click here to enlarge

    Didn't realize you had to have a sunroof. Good place to save weight and a good idea!

    And the 1M also does not have a CF roof.
    Not sure if a sunroof is any lighter than a normal steel roof.
    Anyone know this?
    I didn't order my sunroof for weight saving that's for sure.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    the glass is much heavier than steel sheet. and to move that heavy glass, you need some powerful heavy electronic motors.
    also in older cars ( not sure about new ones ) the structure of roof for cars with sunroof was different than the models without.

    The sunroof will be heavier.

    I know. I would have repped him for it, but the must spread rep notification got in the way.
