RKP E92 3-Series / M3 Carbon Roof
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.
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, however because a carbon roof panel was already available from the factory for coupe models, we saw no need for an E92 panel.
Until now. The very limited supply of E92 carbon roof panels from BMW has resulted in a skyrocketing price approaching $6,000. We've now released a carbon roof to help E92 M3 owners whose cars came equipped with the steel panel as well as non-M E92 owners.
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 steel roof panel. The E92 non-sunroof factory roof panel weighs in at 24lbs, while RKP's carbon roof weighs in under 10lbs, creating a significant performance benefit.
