    Majority of the weight savings would be in the moonroof delete. For people who have the moonroof delete from factory, it will mostly be a cosmetic change.

    I don't know, but you can't buy a $3k OEM room and just plop it on an E90 I don't think.

    Ahh my mistake. I had forgotten that the E90 didn't have an E90 OEM option. I was thinking of the IND Atlantis Blue M3 but it was a custom job and this was an E92. It all just makes this product that much better.

    This is cool mod. I came real close to getting a Z4M coupe before getting the M3. And I had planned on doing a CF roof mod for the Z4M. It just seems to fit the Z4M coupe character really well. But, the M3 coupe came with one, so no mods there, lol. This played a small part in my decision to get the coupe over the sedan, but a very small part. The price sounds right and had I a sedan, this likely would be on my list of mods.
