Any chance m3 sedan will have cf roof as standard or option?

I dont see the reason why the coupe was the only car that had one in the e9x. I have a sedan e90 m3 and wish I had the cf roof.... any chance when I upgrade to the new 2014 will it have cf roof panel? I realize its all speculation until released but any prototypes showing this option

Cf-roof, best place to save weigth and make center gravity lower, looks fantastic and show that Bmw really wan´t make F80 light. I think is mistake if Bmw don´t offer cf-roof optional. Actually Bmw has expanded Moses Lake plant, they can make 3000 tonnes of carbon weave a year, one of the biggest carbon yarn producers. i3 carbon parts cost only third as much than composite roof on the M3.

I think there is an good/great possibility that the F80 would get an carbon-roof, but I think also that if he get one, it wouldn´t be visible because it would be painted in the same color as the rest of the car.

The expensive "Sicht-Carbon"-Roofs are for the coupes only -> F82 and F86 !!!
