When the E92 M3 was released to the market, most M enthusiasts were thrilled to see the car's beautiful exposed carbon roof. Not only did the piece add to the appearance of the car, but it also saved weight at the most critical point on the chassis- the very top of the car. Unfortunately for M3 fans in need of some extra utility, the carbon roof was only available on the M3 coupe.
To help fans of the E90 M3 achieve the same great look and performance of the carbon roof equipped E92 M3s, IND helped develop RKP's carbon fiber roof panel for the E90 M3 sedan.
The RKP carbon roof is constructed by hand at a local facility specializing in components for Grand Am, Time Attack, and various hill climb and formula car classes. Each roof has great fit and finish and saves a considerable amount of weight over the standard roof panel. The E90 non-sunroof factory roof panel weighs in at 24lbs, while RKP's carbon roof weighs in at a mere 9.8lbs, creating a significant performance benefit.
