"REAL M-cars dont need moonroofs. :)"

- How do you feel about the "M" convertibles? I guess it's easier to take the whole entire roof off than to cut a hole in it :-) The reason why I ask this is because a friend at work had a e46 M3 convertible, another work buddy said that real "M" drivers wouldn't purhcase a convertible "M3". I fail to see the reasoning behind that but being the insecure fool that I am, I wouldn't get a convertible (not that I can afford one anyway). I know that you are kidding but personally I see no harm in getting a M car with a sunroof.

IMO because they arent allowed on the track without a huge roll cage. with that said I think is great (if)BMW gives enthusiasts a choice of coupe, sedan, cab, wagon - my point is the real entusiasts will choose the CF roof over the moonroof 7 days a week.

- Why not have both. I thought that Carbon fiber was tougher than steel/aluminum. I canít see why BMW couldnít add the sunroof.


The M3 is a sports car that doesn't offer what all the other sports cars offer. And that would be a sunroof. You can get a sunroof on a Porsche GT3. Thereís no arguing that the GT3 is more of a sports-car than the M3. BMW (and anyone else for that matter) is misguided if they believe that sport-car drivers donít appreciate or want a sunroof.

Many of us use them as daily drivers and enjoy every minute of it. Wanting a sunroof, that might add 35 lb to the car does not make us bad people. An M is a high performance car, but it's certainly not a race car and not even the best choice for the track.

Facing the choice of CF roof with no hole or steel roof with sunroof, I will probably go with the former, though. ******>

Dinan did some hacking on prototypes, but their production cold air intakes that cut the upper radiator strut also heavily reinforce it.******>

CF roof saves weight. MR adds wieght - LOTS of it.

less than a steel MR equipped roof -Tony

"CF roof saves weight. MR adds wieght - LOTS of it."


- While were at it, lets get rid of the power seats, leather, Nav and all the other unnecessary items that add weight. My point is that there are tons of other things that the M3 has that add weight. Why single out the MR?

Which means the carbon roof is replaced by the steel roof from the normal Coupť.

USA GT3 buyers, along with the Barcalounger seats? I have yet to see one on a European GT3.
