Looks good! I've had mine done twice now and still not happy with it. Anyone know a shop in SE Houston that knows how to apply vinyl??

Looks great I recommend you wrapping the outer strips as well so it flows better with your windows.

I did one side and decided against. Regretting it now seeing the pics. Reconsidering.

If you do this, do you take it all the way down the side of the windshield as well? Can you show a pic as example?

Looks good. It provides a nice contrast with your color. I agree with the others that the rails should be wrapped too.

Had my rails done on the first attempt, I could see white around the luggage rack mounting point covers and end up taking it off.

Don't have that issue. At least not at this time.

When I had my roof wrapped the shop removed the rails to wrap them and it was flawless.

Could have been the crap job they did. I do agree that the rails need to be done also.

Why are we wrapping roofs? Looks like a Kia.

Always a gentleman.

For me, it's a desire to look more like a M3 or M6 with a CF roof. I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the results but many other cars are being delivered with dark roofs today (Mercs, teslas and probably Kia too). I think it visually lowers the center of gravity and makes the car look more aggressive.

The great news is that you don't have to do it to your car UL
