CSL Roof

So since OEM CSL roofs are now discontinued. I was waiting eagerly for the roof made by Evolve to come out. It looks pretty good in pictures and everything, but the thing that I couldn't get over was the price. Their MSRP was way more than OEM ever was. Not only that, roofs made by other manufacturers for other BMW models were still cheaper.

So after being disappointed, I decided to try and contact Challenge Engineering. They make CF roofs for the E90 M3 and F10 M5. From the roofs that I've seen and some of their other CF stuff, the quality looks great.

From my conversations with them so far, it looks like they are interested in making it, and so I decided to make a thread to register some interest.

It looks like the MSRP will be about $1495 (which is even cheaper than Evolve's GB price). If there is enough interest, they might even do GB pricing + free shipping.

Here's a couple of pictures of the roofs they currently make:
M5 roof:


1M roof:


And some of their other CF work:




List:
1. sillie
2. terraphantm - pending GB price (from m3forum)
3. robshpf (from m3forum)
4. first boost (from m3forum)
5. Brian N. (pending fit/finish)
6. payam972 (from m3forum)
7. Project E46M3 (from m3forum)
8. stash1 (pending fit/finish) (from m3forum)

I'm still undecided on this, but do have an interest in this over the Evolve one.
