Prepare your flame suit. You will be called a poseur.

Some people on here will say you are trying to imitate e92 carbon roof. But they don't realize people have been painting their roofs black for a long time.

Although I like it. This one looks painted. I have seen it done on a couple M5's and a Z4M coupe. Looks really good.

That pic was taken at C&C collision, so they may be the shop that did it. You should call them and ask...

People have been doing this "imitation" since the E46 CSL in '03. The E92 M3 just happens to lend more to the fad.

It's all in personal taste, but I think this falls in line with the Z3 fender craze.
