Ok good, i was about to say suspension first. But honestly to pull off a black roof, you need a more aggressive looking car. New front bumper, lowered, etc..

so people will notice it and not comment on it.... (aka Matt)

i dont want CF headlight trim. I think it'd look retarded since i dont plan on doing any other CF stuff.

I'll probably just paint the current one silver....or black....not sure yet

paint the kidney grills and headlight trim gloss black.. looks amazing with DDE's. i can't wait until I turn 18 so I can buy some gloss black spray paint and do it to my headlight trim.
