Default Carbon Fiber Roof Help

Dear Nicholas


"Hello again. about Carbon roof, would you kindly give as your feeling and how much you would recommend?


We might change our prices on few carbon parts in near future including the roof. We don’t know yet and we don’t know how much we can go down, but would you please let us know how much is reasonable price?


Please note – this carbon roof is not just a cover. You have to chop your roof off and attach it with your own trust factory.


Thank you"

i need some opinions

i was going to get a CF roof cap but this is just better for my plans for the Z.

wait, what? a company's asking you how much they should market their roof replacement for?

...i've got a bad feeling about this...

then again, i'm not on the market for a carbon fiber roof replacement, so someone else can have their say.

this was their first email

Dear Nicholas

Thank you for your inquiry.

Yes we do have R35 Carbon Fiber Roof. You will have to have somebody who can adhere it on the roof.

It is 720,000JPY excluding shipping.

Please feel confident and let me know for any more information.

that comes out to 7,827.12 USD which is fukin ridiculous

Is it a direct replacement, or just an overlay?

it's Zele...how did you not see this coming? their 370Z body kit is amazing, but holy #^!@ expensive.

i don't get it though, the first e-mail you're talking about is for an R35 CF roof, then you went to a Z...?!

Just paint your roof, and save the money.

That does not look like carbon fiber on the Z in that picture (the roof).

that's not CF, unless it's a new development, the Zele 370Z does not have a direct CF roof replacement.

R35 != Z34, my guess is someone got confused midway through that e-mail.
