How many of you have painted your roof black or cf wrap? I want to do gloss black but would like to see a couple pics if anyone has some.

Thanks

I had thought about Gunmetal as well and loved my super silvers. The hyper blacks turned out looking pretty good.

Dont worry. I think im the only one on here that still likes chrome, leather that doesnt look like mcdonalds made it, functional equipment( not stick on parts you wont notice) just cant figure out why hide nice rims painted by painting black?

My Ride: 2000 323i
Picked up my first BMW a few months ago. Searched around for awhile trying to decide on a nice dd, and after my friend got an 04 silver e46, i decided i wanted one to lol. I was very picky in what i wanted though. had to be 4 door, 5 speed, xenon headlamps, and the black sport interior package. Also i much prefer the pre-facelift look, so it worked out that atleast in a few ways my car wasnt identical to his lol. Took many months but i finally found it. I can say i didn't love the color at first but it has happily grown on me

I plan on having this bein a clean daily that probably will see minimal modification. Just want to get anything replaced that needs fixed first, and then i think some vmr's or csl's through umnitza. From what i've read and seen the 18's on stock sport suspension look pretty nice and SUPPOSEDLY does not affect the ride that much. I find that kind of hard to believe but if anyone wants to comment on that please do.

anywho, here's some pics!
