When the E46 M3 CSL was released, one of the central talking points of the vehicle was the cutting edge weight saving technologies that were utilized in its construction. The CSL was most notably distinguished from the standard E46 M3 by its various lightweight components. The largest of these is the carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (GFP) roof panel, which weighs over 13 pounds less than its conventional steel counterpart.
Many enthusiasts sought after the BMW OEM roof to add to their vehicles, but the part was and is to this day only available to those with a CSL vin #. As an answer to our E46 M3 clients, we're proud to introduce the RKP E46 M3 carbon fiber roof panel. Our carbon roofs are 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.
