you have the best username I've ever seen

i've thought about it, but haven't followed through. imo glossy would look better on rrp than flat.

I've been debating this route for the past couple of months, gloss definitely looks better and much more OEM than a boring flat wrap that everyone has seen before, with the proper touches, ie dark grill and tint, a gloss black roof could look really good on these cars.

A clean RRP leggy would look especially nice with a gloss wrap on the roof.

I wanna do this too but i imagine gloss blk would get scratched up

I'd thought about doing gloss black, but unsure how it would look on SSM.

does it show scratches easily?

Sounds like a cool idea.. Im too damn short to really see much of the roof of my car i feel like so the birds would benefit more than me. My brothers m3 has the carbon roof, looks pretty sweet imo. But, again, you can see a lot more of his roof and i think there its more of a weight reduction tactic than looks. Interested to see what people do with this though..

No scratches yet after a year.
Just don't use a snow brush on the roof during winter.
Also, soak the roof first with water when washing the car.

Looks ubber cool on a white car....

IF they came with black int, I would of considered white and would of definitely wrapped the roof gloss black.

Great looking car there Leggy!

got a quote from a local guy... $250... after watching a few youtube videos i think my buddy and I may try and bust it out ourselves. Just looks like one of those jobs where patience is a virtue

IF you buy the DI-noc it is super forgiving! i swear it has tiny holes in that make it easy to apply. (you'll think your a pro!)


i bought a bunch off eBay and i went nuts wrapping phones,laptops,cases and anything else we could get out mitts on.
