I've seen some floating around here on E90s/92s, looks pretty bad ass. Never on a vert though. Not sure how it would work...

wouldn't recommend it. say somehow the vinyl ends up folding up from the hot sun and gets stuck in the mechanics you're screwed. it's 10k+ to fix the top just in parts. wouldn't mess with it.

Hmm... would look nice indeed. Especially with how the e93's top rear looks. But like what Saigon said, it might get messed up easily...

I'm actually getting mine done at Martino Auto Concepts. Its a very pricey task because they are going to take a part the roof to make sure every area is covered. But I'm not doing vinyl Im getting it painted. When Its finished i'll get some photos up.

I totally agree. It makes it look like a softtop. Not a fan at all and IMO takes away from the car

Not a fan off the fully wrapped top. May look good if the sides were left painted.

yikes. i don't like how the vinyl wrap looks. definitely makes it look like a softtop. With mine im painting it high gloss black and its gonna follow the windshield markers. itll just be the top of the roof.

Still thinking to whether just take the whole vinyl off or leave the side painted!
