    Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    Hi guys,
    I saw today a BMW M6 near my house and was wondering about it..
    it had all the M6's signs..
    M6 emblems on the steering-wheel, the M6 emblems on the sides & back
    and of course! the 4 exhausts...
    BUT! I'm pretty sure it didn't have a CarbonFiber roof..
    though it was dark and hard to see, but I'm pretty sure it didn't..
    I think it was a regular -huge- sunroof..
    Is that possible? can a M6 be without the Carbon roof ?

    Thanks for you help!

    Re: Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    dont think so. One of the emblems of the M6 is the carbon fiber roof...don't think its an option to be taken off...

    Re: Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    I was wondering the opposite..

    Maybe it's an addition.. as the roof comes as a regular one and there are options like sunroof or a Carbon fiber roof..

    Nope, the only available roof for the M6 is the carbonfiber roof.

    Yeah.. the car comes out of the factory with the CF roof...

    Re: Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    Probably a non M6 with all the other M6 bits on?

    Re: Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    I thought the only BMW with a standard CF roof was the M3 CSL!! I could be wrong though..

    From the BMW M6 pressrelease:

    Quote:
    First-ever carbon-fiber roof in series production.
    The first car to feature a roof made of carbon-fiber was the BMW M3 CSL. Now, following that special model built in small, strictly limited series, BMW M GmbH is introducing a carbon-fiber roof on the M6 Coupe, thus raising this concept of intelligent lightweight technology to a new dimension in series production.
    Offering the same stability and crash safety as a steel roof, this carbon- fiber material derived from motorsport is significantly lighter than aluminum, let alone steel. The result is a significant reduction in weight and mass lowering the car's center of gravity.

    Thanks Temm! I was wondering too.
    Maybe it was just a 6-series with M6 bits like RichJ suggested?

    Again temm I could be wrong, but they don't mention here that its introduced as a standard feature on all M6s.

    Re: Q about the BMW M6 Roof..

    Saw the car again today..
    Talked with the owner and he pop-up the hood for me..
    There was a V10 5.0 liter engine...
    though the roof doesn't seem to be Carbon Fiber..
    so it's either not carbon or it's a painted carbon.. don't know

    Or just ask the owner if it's a carbonfibre roof....

    No it doesn't specifically say that is standard on the M6 in this article, but have you found another roof option for the M6 anywhere?
