    You better add it the pre-face lift boot and not the face lift unit as they are different and you will have to use your original boot button open/number plate light section in the carbon boot.

    not a big fan of carbon look unless on black car.

    was considering carbon body panels and spray them silver to match car as far as weight concerns, but i don't want to strip out interior so seems little point.

    tbh i wouldnt even consider a carbon roof skin. The cars roof is an integral part of the unibodys strength, and seen as you cant exactly weld the carbon skin to the existing structure after you;ve removed the steel roof you'll have seriously reduced the strenght of the bodyshell.

    very good point aragorn an i'd have the very same concern although i'd also love a carbon roof! very CSL! wouldnt you need the be pretty carefully that the weave/pattern in the carbon fibre 'skin' vaguely matched the real CF of the other parts?

    Billybravo i assume all/any CF parts supplies by yuor supplier would all be the same weave/pattern??

    very tempted!!

    Not really correct!
    I´ve done a carbon fibre roof replacement on my B6 Avant and it works just fine...
    The metal roof skin doesn´t give the car it´s structural strenght.
    That is stricktly a job for the "cross braces"
    The sheet metall is more or less just to stop you from getting wet in rain... :p
