although CFRP roof brings much better weight and center of gravity advantages, but personally not very keen on them as the lack of sunroof / moon roof ( sorry i am a glass roof fan ).

but anyway nice clips and tks for sharing, not as automated as i thought and certainly Landshut germany is not the cheapest place to have a semi-automated / labour factory, and hence possibly explain the price tag.

Slow production speed, high scrap rate, no wonder the cost of this CFRP is so high.
