I'm looking to change the roof colour of my mini and there are several reasons for this. The colour that is on there now is fine and i really like it. I think is Caribbean blue, but i'm not sure. However it contains weird looking paint defects which get worse towards the rear. They looks like a chemical has faded the colour in patches or maybe a defect during painting. Either way the kinda irk me so I figured if i'm going to get rid of them I could also change the colour whilst I am at it. Someone suggested having it wrapped, But i have no experience with wraps so I wondered what your opinion on them are.

I like the black roof, its different. 

 

Perhaps you could try silver or grey as well?

It's definitely different. I reckon a silver roof could work as well and would be very different

Like the black roof. Planning a similar thing, then black matching arches to compliment it.

I Hadn't thought of a silver roof, it would match the pinstripe, but maybe not the wheels. But yeah the arches are on my list of things to do they are cracked where the last owner riveted them on. But would you guys say paint or wrap?
