According to the load requirements of the component being formed, the fi bers of the individual woven layers run lengthwise, laterally or diagonally. The top layer serves as a visible endpoint. The roof is pre-formed in a heated press, with the help of a fast-melting powder. This keeps the fabric layers from slipping, allowing the roof to achieve the correct curvature. In the next stage, the pre-formed roof is combined with the resin in the large press described above. The stacked carbon roofs are then put into a large oven for further hardening.

With BMW ConnectedDrive you stay in touch, no matter where you go. Its advanced communications and entertainment features create a network between driver, vehicle and environment, at any time and wherever you are.

BMW ConnectedDrive encompasses all these services, including traffi c features which enable the networking of BMW cars and their occupants with the outside world. Top-, Side- and Rear-view Cameras around the vehicle show the surroundings on the Control Display, for enhanced visibility. The Top-view Camera provides a bird’s-eye view of the road alongside the doors. These images, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors, help guide you when maneuvering in tight spaces. Side-view Cameras in the front bumpers show traffic approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Rear-view Camera, located behind the BMW badge on the trunk lid, shows the area behind the vehicle. Working with Park Distance Control, interactive guidelines indicate if the vehicle can fit in a parking space, and display parking trajectories and turn angles. Speed Limit Info shows the currently applicable speed limit in the instrument cluster as well as in the Head-up Display (if so equipped). A special camera captures the speed limit posted on signs; a control unit then processes this information together with data from the on-board Navigation system. Other components, such as the vehicle’s rain sensor, are also used, so the system can even factor in variable speed limits for the driver in, for example, wet conditions.
