    Hey Guys just after a few opinions and Ideas.

    I want to vinyl wrap the roof on my akoya silver 3dr and can't decide what colour to go for.
    The colours I have in mind are:
    matt black, carbon, graphite & matt white
    Not sure about the carbon as I don't really like something to look like something it isn't.

    the interior trim parts will propably go the same colour at some point to.

    this is my car atm:

    thanks Guys

    gloss or matt black then?

    hmm not that fond of black wheels as they can make the tyres look grey, new wheels are on the cards but can't afford them at the mo :3sadwalk:

    I use tyre shine spray on my tyres - keeps them nice and black at all times :)

    Gloss black IMO. And what about anthracite wheels instead of black?!?!

    hmm good call, I think if I go for anthracite wheels I want the roof the same colour:think:

    also just found out that a mate has graphite vinyl I can have for free! then if I don't like it I can always remove it :)
    then the wheels may go graphite too

    I'd leave it as it is if I were you.

    Fake carbon roofs, wrapped roofs is 2009 trends.

    Keep it OEM and clean.

    don't do it, I don't tink it's a good idea on a silver car... on a white car it's a killer, maybe on red too. but silver - no :(

    It can be done on a silver car but you have a little more work to do. Wing mirrors black, rear valence black, grill surround black, including the silver strip around the lower grill. When doing the roof ,bring the vinyl straight back across the spoiler but do not cover the spoiler sides. matt black looks fine and scratches less but does not give the appearance of an "open skye" roof. If you do it, keep a bottle of vinyl cleaning solution in car as bird droppings kill it. just my 0.02
