nice job looks great ,it blows my mind BMW would stop making the cf roofs if I had a csl and the roof was damage on a car that is not even ten years old and there is no replacement also there is a big demand for the cf roof it looks like all the auto manufactures is following GM

Thanks.

God knows what the truth is behind BMW stopping production. I think they have made maybe like a thousand pieces and just put them away for certain genuine cases where a Real CSL's roof does get damaged.

great choice. keep the car as pure as possible. looks fantastic the way it is. only thing i don't like is the tints but i guess you are in the dessert so it probably helps =p though i imagine that carbon roof willl help with the heat some

Dropped the ///M off at LLUMAR BAHRAIN (Ekanoo) For the clear film protection on the roof. Too afraid of it getting scratched by stone chips etc....
















Its weird how the car feels lighter. Did anyone else feel the car handled differently after the sunroof to CF roof swap? I can see that the height needs adjusting again as it looks like the cars sitting slightly higher now.

Crazy. I wanted this for the longest time, but like you said neither BMW nor Vorsteiner sells it anymore. I think I might have to just go with a steel roof.

It's funny how 50lbs off the back seats or something doesn't make much of a difference, but 50lbs off the roof does (dues to center of gravity).

Anyways awesome mod buddy, looks great!

Thanks bro. You really should try and get the EVOLVE CF roof. It's super OEM quality, fit and finish.

That car was beautiful from the start. This made it better. Those shops look like they do great quality work. I must apologize, as I was biased, believing that shops in the middle east just chopped things up and rigged everything. I am completely wrong. I would kill to have a shop like those around here. Freakin Americans wouldn't put plastic on the doors and all that, nor have a shop that looks 1/4 as good as that.

Well done, well done. Can't wait to visit Bahrain.

Thank you Sir. ekanoo racing is absolutely fantastic. If you add them on instagram @ekanooracing you'll see what kind of cars ek works. on. They truly are blessed with the best facilities and skilled labor in the country or even the middle-east.

Got her back today from LLUMAR. Amazing job with the clear film on the roof. Cant even notice it, not even up close. I know many of you said to remvoe the sharkfin but I kind of like it up there plus its too much hassle....

Pics from today....













Also, I feel the car needs to be lowered a tiny bit up front. I'll try and do that this week.
