Lightbulb Previous models w/CFRP Roofs had OEM Connection Points/Bolts.

Thule Roof Luggage Rack on previous models with Carbon Fiber Roof that had OEM Connection Points/Bolts.

So YES it can be done, but BMW M has neglected this in the past five years and that needs to changed ASAP.

Nope. It's VERY OLD NEWS.

It's a 2010 Video from below that starts about :30 seconds in. So it's actually almost a Decade old.

I wonder how much time and how many steps and people it takes, on average, to produce one of these roofs.
