I wouldn't exactly call it two-tone! I think of a gaudy old Cadillac with white-wall tires when I hear two-town. I also think many can attest to how awesome of a color Silver Gray is. It has a fantastic metallic flake to it that pops when it's clean and it hides dirt better than any color out there. Plus, it's not the ordinary silver (Titanium Silver). I agree, that "color" is entirely too common and so boring.

In any event, the roof was painted Sapphire Black which is a factory-available BMW color by a certified BMW body shop. I did this to give the car a more unique and sporty appearance. Mercedes paints the roof black on many of their sport-package equipped cars. Quite a few people on this forum have done this as well sometimes using vinyl instead of paint. I decided to go with Sapphire Black because it is a truly black metallic paint without any color to it and makes the primary Silver Gray color of the car really pop.
