Roof wrap on F30 335i

Afternoon everyone,

I need your input, I currently have a gray 335i with the Msport package. I'm thinking of getting the front lip and then wrap the roof with gloss black. I know these will look good on a white car, but what's everyone's take on a gray car ?

Oh and I will probably drop the car by about 1 inch using the HR sport spring, replace the mirror cover with a black cap and maybe add a body matching spoiler.

Thanks for the input in advance!

I have a MG f30 as well and I think it'll be fine. Do you plan on tinting the windows?

I think cars with black roofs will always looks nice, tinted windows or not. On a grey car it'll be more subtle than say a white car. It's a nice change that's also reversible.

Yes I plan on tinting the windows, probably 35% all around. Next I will probably be lowering it or adding a lip (unpainted).

Yea, I like to keep it subtle and as close to stock as possible. It's these small things that makes it look nicer!

I was quoted 225 for a gloss black roof wrap. Not sure if that's expensive.

Go for it! Get all the components done though...
I had mine done. There will be less contrast with MG color but will look great.

Nice! That looks real good. Did they also wrap the antenna for you? How many inch drop is it ? And how much did they charge you for the wrap ?

From other members' experiences, that sounds about average to me.
