    with the wrap though i was advised not to do it on non oem paint as it is that much soffter it may pull the paint if you were to remove it, so the roof would need re-painting in that case anyway

    I would do it. I had a black roof/spoiler till some p**** pulled the vinyl off. Makes the car stand out a bit more, there an 8L S3 on ebay for sale with black roof looks lovely. I'd get it wrapped though cheaper and if you dont like it can take it off. Was £100 down by me to have roof/spoiler done.
