I do believe that BMW knows how to coat their CF so that it never yellow, and they do it quite well...but I would still like those with M6s for a while, that see the light of day quite a bit, to chime in and give me opinions...Looking to get the new M3 soon, and just want to know what's in store w/ CF...

Thanks guys.

I'm going on 19 months now. No change whatsoever, however, about the only time the car is exposed to the sun is when I'm driving it. It is under cover almost all the other time in various garages.

How many miles you have?

No known incidents.
VR Alexander + many others...(rennlist.com)
(unless you mean no such incidents with the M6 itself)

Are you comparing BMW against Porsche??

No known incidents for the M6 but it is likely a completely different process.

No issues after 16 months and 18k miles :M5thumbs:
My car is a daily driver and is exposed to the sun all day.

I am also very happy to NOT have a sunroof.
The sunroof on my E36 M3 rattled, even though it was never used. Due to lack of use, it stopped working -- and needed to be repaired before selling the car ouich
Exact same experience with my E30 325, except that sunroof also leaked :nono:

Nono not comparing, just hoping it's not the same!
