    Revosport creates a carbon fiber weight saving roof for the BMW E82 1M coupe

    Carbon fiber is much more than just something that looks cool. It also saves weight and when applied in the appropriate places it makes a considerable difference. This is why BMW used it for the roof on the E92 M3. BMW skimped on the carbon roof for the 1M (among other things) but not to worry as Revosport has a carbon roof option for the 1M. The carbon panel weighs only 4 kilograms vs. the stock 16 kilograms. That is 12 kilograms (26 pounds) saved at the highest point of the car. Cool looking and functional? You bet.

    This roof will fit all E82's, right?
    Any idea what the conversion would cost?

    Pricing for E82 CF Roof

    Here is the info you need.

    Product Name:
    1M Raze Lightweight Roof Panel
    P/N:
    B E82 2 RAZ B400
    Material:
    Vacuum Infused Gloss or *Matt Carbon
    *15% surcharge applicable
    Weight: Roof (without sunroof)
    OEM: 16kg / Revozport: approximate 3kg
    Application:
    E82 all (with or without sunroof)
    Description:
    Like the E46 M3 CSL and E92 M3, the roof is replaced with carbon fiber because it is the highest point of a car and reducing weight is essential to help cornering and lateral G force. Cars with sunroof can easily weight over 20kg at the highest point. The extra weight creates bodyroll and stress to both suspension and tires.
    Price:
    Replacement Type : US$ 1,500.00 (for Sunroof and Non-sunroof)
    Insert Type : US$ 1,500.00

    It looks awesome but how many people can you trust that have the experience of glueing it on?

    Fit and finish looks excellent! Price seems very reasonable also. Question regarding the price however - why would the matte finish (no gloss) be 15% higher than the gloss? Is this a misprint?Cheers.

    Just like skinning a roof. Bodyshops to this all day. A good shop should have no problem.

    $1,500 is tempting, anyone know the exact weight of an E82's sunroof and motor because you'd be losing that, too.I'd think a sunroof and motor is at least 30lbs, right?

    I think sunroof models can benefit from this a lot. The glass and motors has to weigh 50 lbs including the steel roof. Serious weight savings right there.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    Too bad you live in the US and will never have one! You could build your own though for a fraction of the cost. Just take out the back seats, through a roll cage in and install a stroker motor! Voila! You got yourself a GTS! Click here to enlarge

    Meh, I'll just supercharge it and have a more entertaining ride than either.

    Call me crazy but this on a little 1M thats already light doesn't seem like the right target market. Now create one that fits the new F10 which are pigs and could probably save 50lbs there or more and you've got yourself a winner. There is an actual need for this with those cars.

    I wonder if they loose structural rigidity because of this mod though. How is it fastened to the metal pillars? If they use epoxy, it has to be done right or it will not be as stiff at the joints.

    I priced a BMW S63 from the GTS and it is $32,500 my cost with shipping included from New Jersey. BMW told me it is available at the end of the month if I want one. I am thinking of a project car with this engine. A supercharger just doesn't work for me. Roof is still trick!!!
