In sports cars, it depends not only on the performance of the vehicle, but of course on the power and the appearance. Therefore, it is also difficult to understand if genuine sports cars without Carbondach factory delivered. In order to slim down a little more, you can even retrofit the carbon roof. The BMW M2 F87 (not competition) is such a vehicle, for example. Sporty and with a powerful engine, it comes from the factory initially without carbon roof. But for this vehicle there is a solution from the states of IND distribution for retrofitting. But of course this is sauteuer and an intrusion into the body. If you only want to have the sporty look, there are also panels for the roof or only for the spars.
sporty look is guaranteed
Especially good comes a carbon roof or a carbon roof panels, if the vehicle has a bright finish and it forms a striking contrast to the carbon. The carbon roof of IND Distribution is manufactured by RKP and is based on the design of the factory equipped with carbon fiber BMW models M4 Coupe, the M3 or the M6. It was measured using laser technology to match the original line of the M4 roof to the dimensions of the M2 roof. The result is a carbon roof, which looks like an original factory installed product. BMW laymen would believe that the BMW M2 rolled off the line so.
such a roof also saves a few kilograms
The carbon roof of IND Distribution saves you five kilograms compared to the standard built-in roof. Although the five kilograms may not sound like a heavy weight loss, it should be noted that this weight is reduced at the highest point of the vehicle and thus the center of gravity of the vehicle continues to move down. The roof costs 1295 US dollars on the American market. However, no distribution is planned on the European market. Of course plus installation costs
Carbon roof / spar cover for sticking
If you don't want it to be that expensive or if you don't want to replace the factory-installed roof at great expense, you can also use a roof panel. For example, there are complete panels made of real carbon for the roof as an attachment. This is called a carbon roof cover. During production, the vehicle roof is scanned with a 3D laser and the data set is used to mill a prototype of the roof using CNC technology. The resulting CFRP shape is then used to manufacture the carbon roof cover in an autoclave and to trim it for stability under high pressure and temperature. The assembly of the cover is very easy, by the way. It is just glued to the factory vehicle roof and that's it. There is no mechanical intervention on the body. You can even choose between different CFRP structures. And the manufacture and attachment of a carbon roof rail is identical. Here, too, the original spar is measured and a precisely fitting cover is made to stick on.
Foiling or painting as an alternative
The cheapest way to get an individual roof rail or an individual vehicle roof is the way one foilingfollowed by a paintwork, We hope that you the info report on the topic / term Roof frame fairing (further names / keywords: Roof cover, roof pillar cover, A-pillar cover, A-pillar cover, A-pillar cover, Holmverkleidung, Holcover, A-pillar attachment, carbon roof cover, carbon roof attachment, roof covering, roof cover, carbon roof) from the field of car tuning liked.
