Ironic because I did the shadowline and it took HOURS and was a total bitch, where I'd think the roof would just be a flat sheet you could diy.

Iím actually thinking about painting the roof now!! I went to Pro-Edge Auto&Paint to get my Engine Cover painted and he told me he could paint the roof for $400. And he does a lifetime warranty on all his work.

So for my Mercedes i went to Chameleon Wraps and they charged me around $225 for material and installation. They do wraps for companies that want to advertise on cars so they do this stuff all the time, just not necesarrily for us mod fanatics. The only thing i didnt like was the material was kind of thick and had a honeycomb texture to it (that u could only see really close up). I'm sure if u take your own material they would give u a great price.

The only problem i have with painting is that if in the end you dont like it or want to take it off (trade in / sell / whatever) you wont be able to you just gota repaint. With vinyl you peel it off and bam! done!

on the pre-lci its just a few allen screws that you take off. you might have to take off the cowl to get to the back screws.

Sighting on 59 south around 8:30am: Black pre-lci e92 with CSL trunk, roof spoiler, M-tech bumper. REALLY nice looking car!
I was late for a meeting and didn't mean to make it seem like I was racing.

Riiiiight Vig! HA!

Can any of you guys try this:
Push your headlamp switch inward... I think I knocked mine into the dash (not sure if it should do that), but the knob goes in just til its inside the dash and then it stops. I can pull the knob back out and it seems to function properly... I didnt notice it sliding inward until today.
