black contrasting top - after the fact?

Hi all and greetings from your newest forum member!

I'll be picking up my wife's new Valencia Orange 28i that the dealer had ordered and is en-route. She would have liked the black contrasting top that, of course, the car does not have. Have any of you done this mod after the fact, either paint or wrapped? If so, I'd like to hear of your experience.

She must be from princeton---i don't think the two colors look well on that car---also, i don't think orange is a good color either, but that is one mans opinion who thinks orange is his favorite color---mine is white cuz i live in florida and it repels the heat---no matter the color, its the car that counts, so enjoy it

black contrasting top

Hi paint the top black and make the wife happy no big deal. If that is the colors on the car that she likes that is all that matters.

If you do get it painted, be sure to use a high quality shop and one that uses a high quality paint. I would ask you local BMW dealer who they use unless they have their own body shop. If they do, you might consider using them.
