Default What type of roof do you have???

I was posting elsewhere, and this idea struck me. The California top is quite rare, but I think sun-roof delete is rare as well, with the majority of ti's having a normal sun-roof.

Please fill in this poll, as I think we're ALL a little curious...

PS Mine is sun-roof delete.

I have a normal sunroof on my 98. I believe some members that live in Austrailia have the glass sunroof which would've been cool on the ti.

Is no sun-roof ordered considered a "delete"?

yep. No sun-roof is considered 'delete' even though it was an option, since basically all the ti's I've seen have a normal sun-roof...

The purpose of this poll is to see just who has the 'rare' set-up...

I have no sunroof, and on the 1995 Club Sport supposedly only 3 out of the 300 made had sunroof delete. Now I also have seen posted only 200 CS were made. Don't know which figure is correct, but rare nonetheless.

My base ti also has no sunroof, probably not a delete option, but a cost cutting measure on the cheapest ti in the line up.

I've got the Cali top aswell, but I also have the Cali package which was only available in 96. Hey, I gotta do something to make myself feel more rare after having the most common answer in this poll

Now that was a shame. I know Ben probably had no idea how rare that car was when he converted it, but if that happend to be MY car, I would have NEVER converted it, and found another to convert. My standard sport from 1998 is fairly common, but if it was a factory radio delete car (as I know of NO other tis with radio delete) I would not have converted it either...

Club Sports ARE rare, and the numbers put them on par with the 1995 M3 LTW (about 250 made, NONE had sunroof, but I know of one that had it added. [insert Napolean Dynamite "IDIOT, GAWD!" here])

Actually Ben did not convert it. He bought it that way. A guy named Albert Bossert originally purchased the car as a toy and quickly had it converted by Turner Motorsports. The motor came from a 20K mile wrecked '95 M3 owned by Richard Kurtz. Up until 4.5 years ago when Ben bought the car, it had only 30K miles on it. Ben put another 30K in the two years he owned it. In that time, he redid much of the car with RE upgrades. I've added a few more things over the years and only added less than 4k miles. IMHO, converting an e30 M3 is more sacriligious. In the ti, it just makes sense.
