CF vinyl looks so tacky. If you're going to paint/apply vinyl to your roof, just do black. If your car is stock though, I'd avoid getting a black roof. You need to have somewhat of an aggressive exterior to be able to pull off the look imo, and stock just doesn't cut it

LOL! I remember helping a friend put a vinyl roof on his Mk IV Cortina in the early eighties when they were popular in the UK.

Pretty cool on the e92, but I'm not so sure on the e90.

This might be me flamed, but if you're going to go around sticking vinyl on your car it might as well be woodgrain.

If you want to paint it, just paint it.

I think it looks sweet. Although if your car is stock it wont look right. Like others have said the car needs to be pretty heavily modified or else it would just look out of place. However if done correctly on a modified car with other black/smoked accessories I think it would be really cool.
