Opinion please- yay or nay?

I recently purchased 08 M3 Sedan AW new. Close to what I want but missing a few:
1. 19" - gunmetal 18" on AW started growing on me actually.
2. PDC - I can live w/o it.
3. No moonroof - Funny all the coupes I found had moonroofs but somewhat the sedan I found didn't have it.

Anyway, it seems a bit empty with no moonroof on AW sedan so I was thinking about doing some vinyl wrap with BMW F1 (and all other race cars/motorcycles) color.

I used the picture I found from this forum (another AW sedan w/o moonroof).
Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks,

So far 0:3- "nay" is public opinion.
If you guys have any idea what to do on the roof, let me know.
Just put roof rack (which I have no use for personally)?

I have no idea why, but for some reason I kinda like it. I always was a sucker for offset stripes.

Yeah- I'm kinda against sticker things on the car but I kinda like it so I made a poll. But so far, 1:9 Nay is the winner here so far.

I'm sucker for stripes... But for me, it's either front to back or non at all.

Here's a pic from a Calgary meet.

I got my E90 sunroof-less, too. I like it in blue, but it is kinda plain in white. I'd paint it. I sure wouldn't mind if a vendor came out with an aftermarket CF roof for the sedan, though.

Black obviously looks good but god forbid you be different
Maybe try out a different scheme and see what works. I personally like the idea, but let's see where you go with it
