It can't be the same car. His is platnium, not platimun.

Huh, I wonder what that red squiggly line under those two words means? Meh, it's probably a glitch in the system.

I had it painted. Theres actually a few light platinum Vs with painted roofs in the tri-state area. Now I get why people complain about black cars, hard work to keep it clean.

I saw a black one with a platypus roof.

Yeah man, keeping a black car clean... Impossibru.

I definitely like the way it came out OP. Looks good, IMO.

I really like the black roof. I do not like the roof spoiler. At all. Why bother with a trunk spoiler for downforce if your roof spoiler is not allowing clean air to get to it??

I have mixed feelings about the roof spoiler. I think it actually looks better with the black roof and black spoiler than it would if the roof was silver.

As for functionality, who's to say the trunk spoiler is seeing any airflow in the original configuration? The roof spoiler may actually make the trunk spoiler more effective by "tripping up" the airflow coming off the roof - like the vortex generators on the EVO and the roof spoiler on the STI.

Maybe. Maybe not.

I also though about doing this to my car, but with a wrap instead of paint. That way I could remove it if I didn't like it, or grew tired of the look. Thanks for the photographs! I like the look but my only concern is, is it to Mercedes Benz copy cat!

Looks great! my silver Audi A4 had carbon fiber trunk that was painted black and left a middle section CF exposed and then doing a matching CF hood... was just about to do the roof... when blammo... some b!tch pulls out in front of me with no place to go, I totalled it into her = V purchase. I never did get pics of it like that since I was waiting until finished :(

and, yes, black is a PITA to keep clean. I miss my silver sometimes... like 5 minutes after I wash the V.
