The OP's thread on sunroofs made me wonder. Has anyone here had their roof painted black to give contrast to their lighter coloured AR and at the same time the illusion of a sunroof ? If so, how did it turn out ? I ordered my white Giulia with sunroof and although I seldom open the shade or sunroof, I like that contrast.

Or get it vinyl wrapped vs paint. Would be faster and maybe cheaper. Take it off when you don't like it anymore.

Right up there with artificial testicles for a neutered dog.

There are shops that will wrap your roof in gloss black. A friend of mine literally got it done last week on his white Lexus.

Make sure you find a reputable shop in your area though. Cheap ones will skimp out on prep or quality of the wrap and start bubbling. You get what you pay for.

Do you mean like having the whole roof black (would look good) or just a small rectangle ala sun roof (wouldn't look good imo)

It would definitely be the whole roof. There would be absolutely no point in having just a small rectangle as shown above if you're looking for that contrast with the lighter coloured paint.

In that case lots of cars have the whole roof black. Maybe instead of paint, just do a cf wrap. Not permanent if you don't like it, and would look good
