    I know its nothing new but I just wonder what every thinks about it.

    I'm toying with the idea of wrapping the roof on Audrey black, not sure on matt or gloss.

    What do you all think?
    Any views, thoughts or images of other Avants with wrapped roofs?

    Is that your car in your sig? Looks burgundy..

    If that's the case, I would wrap the whole car.

    Do it mate. The Wheels have already transformed the car and I think a matt black roof will make it look a bit more aggressive. A black grill surround wouldn't go a miss either :thumbsup:

    Don't really think it would make that much difference on a Hibiscus car. Think it would look a bit daft because it wouldn't stand out that much.

    i vote no, its got a classy look going on with the wheels and body colour and its a diesel automatic so why would you want an aggresive look
    if it was mine i'd add facelift grill and alloy roof rails to enhance it

    You do have a point about the auto diesel part ;)

    Allow roof rails would look good.

    I am siding with the no to the wrap.

    Facelift grill?
    whats the difference? (I'll google it now)

    I can never make my mind up about the alloy roof rails.

    Do it, do it, do it cha cha cha.

    I think it'll look good dude, not sure it will look aggressive, but it will look mint.

    And gloss black, it'll look like one of those panorama roof jobbies.

    Haha! But to be fair Scott has far too much time and his paint work actually looks quite good still!

    I wouldn't recommend a spray but a wrap is so easily removable.
