The AJ Hartman Carbon Fiber E46 Roof panels are an exact replica of the OEM steel or CSL carbon fiber roof from the factory E46 M3. Hartman uses a resin infusion process, along with high quality materials and a structured layup to build this hood which results in it only weighing 9.5 pounds. This is a huge weight savings over even an aluminum M3 hood or a steel non-M hood (44.5 pounds).
Removing weight from the highest point on your car with a 100% Carbon Fiber roof panel is a huge performance advantage. This roof panel weighs only 6.9 pounds and replaces the entire roof skin.
The parts are built to order - please allow 1-2 weeks lead time! SHIPPING NOT INCLUDED - shipping costs will be BILLED SEPARATELY at $250 (freight) to the lower 48 states, shipped from New Jersey.
This is a Motorsports grade carbon part so it does not have any fiberglass, gel coat, or glossy clear coating. Built by AJ Hartman here in the USA, this roof panel fits both E46 Coupes and M3s and can be bolted/bonded in place of the OEM roof panel. We recommend to have this hood painted, wrapped, or clear coated with a UV protective coating before installation.
We recommend a qualified body shop perform the install (which involves considerable labor removing the steel roof panel, then bolting and bonding the carbon panel in place) but we do show some installation instructions linked below.
