thank you my friend. Because everything else is just window dressing for an internet argument.

See and Drive the damn car then come up with your conclusion

I would be shocked if the F80 M3 came out with a CF roof on its debut. I was sure BMW would follow the same marketing model as the 6er series: CF only for ///M Coupe and GC.

The CF roof would be a great aesthetic and functional upgrade for the F80. It would also decrease my jealousy for M coupes since I still need 4 doors.

I hear what you're saying and thought the exact same way until we snapped these pics. We shall see although it seems strange to give it to the GC but not the F80 (or the F10 for the matter) at least as an option.

It actually does not seem so strange to me that the M4 and M6 would get the CF roof while the M3 and M5 would not. This would be exactly as it was last generation (where the M4 was still the M3 Coupe of course, and there were no GCs yet).

If they do indeed give the M3 the CF roof it would seem to signal that they are taking every last measure to reduce weight for the F8x. I would also guess that the sunroof option may retain the CF roof perhaps. Furthermore, I would not be surprised either if the CF roof became a BMW commodity sooner than later, gracing perhaps every one of the upcoming G generation cars except the 1 and 2 possibly.

Is it not rather the way that the F80M3 all the time had an carbon roof - but just in painted (cheap) industrial-carbon - and now they probably decided to offer an visible Carbon Roof similar to the F82 (and E92M3) to carry the lightweight-thoughts to the outside!?

So it looks like Bimmerpost is confirming the CF roof for the F80! Awesome news for sedan fans. Looking forward to the final product and performance stats.
