Carbon Fiber E93 roof???

I jus saw a post of an E92 with a CF roof.... Does anyone know if there is such thing as a CF replacement for the E93's hard-top convertible roof? I'm very interested...

I saw somewhere that BMW is debating on the use of CF roof panels & hardware (along with the roof supporting arms) to lower weight. As opposed to the Steel pieces for the upcoming E93/M3. That would be SWEET!
I try to find the source and post it....

Are you referring to this guy's AW E92 that he installed a CF roof on?

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=128546

His CF roof is an overlay btw. It's not a replacement. I'm sure a skilled person could install a CF overlay on your E93 if you so desired. It's a good question for the best BMW aftermarket shop in your area or if you are so inclined you could venture to try it yourself. Good luck.
