Paint it black?

My 535xi has a spot on the roof that looks like a basketball bounced on it, made a dent and was pushed out from inside. The dealer is going to try and fix using PDR but if they can't, they'll be using some filler and spraying the roof.

If they paint it, I'm thinking about having the roof painted satin or gloss metallic black. Thoughts? CF overlay?

The windows are all lightly tinted, so it might be a good look.

IMO it is not a good idea. But then again, I have outgrown speed racer cars.

Nothing wrong with a black roof if you want it. Try & look at the gallery. Then you can see how one with a similar color to yours looks.
