New Vinyl Top

Hey Guys, never seen a really close up picture of the vinyl black roof... just thought i would post one...it is from my iphone so it may not be considered the best quality. my apologies in advance. Also decided to just throw some pics, went from an mtech 2 to an M3 rep bumper, strass lip and new H&R Cupkit...hope you all approve to EuroSpec for the bumper....

Enjoy

Thats one fine looking car. My one complaint would be that you seem to have the grills blacked out and the windows tinted, but your rocking shiny silver wheels and clears (possibly all round). Smoke+gunmetal those *****es now and you'll have one badass car.

what's the purpose of it? I have seen a couple of cars with it, but never knew what it was for.

If you've got all your windows tinted it looks like you have no roof in certain situations. I don't really know why you'd do it, but it looks cool.

OP that sounds pretty good. Ditch the license plate as well thats an air duct not a plate holder

car looks good. but as for the vinyl roof, you should have painted it. it would have been pretty much the same price and you can fix any scratches that may occur in the future. and it looks much better. imo i think vinyl roofs look half assed but to each his own i guess.

Think a black vinyl'ed roof would look good on a steel grey? I might be getting mine done for FREE.

Just leave it off anyways

I kind of want to check this out in person sometime. I've been considering going vinyl but am worried about the results. Any way to get some better pictures?

I helped install this... It looks great. I will be doing mine next weekend and will be taking some nice pictures. I might have some leftover vinyl for a few projects if anyone is interested.

Looks good.

I always liked black roofs, because they helped pull the car together, giving it a cleaner and more aggressive stance at the same time.
