Hmmm, if your thing is robbing banks, this might be for you!

Looks very cool, and there was a 135i owner on this board that did the exact same thing (post was about 6 months ago).

I wonder how washing that car will work, and how long you can keep a shine on it. I highly doubt you could wax it, and that film is far softer than the painted finish, so I would think it would scratch, pit, and dull very quickly.

Okay...but if you wanted the black roof on A/W look....why not just get an A/W car and put black film on the roof?

That's brilliant! I had a real hard time deciding between Alpine White and Sedona Red. Now I can have both!

Or one-step better, paint the roof for $200 at a pro body shop.

On my MINI, I have a black and white checkered roof and it is done by putting black 3m squares on the already white roof. It has held up pretty well for early 5 years and I wax it just like the rest of the car. It is not as durable as paint though and I wonder how it will work on the creases and corners.
