This 135i on the BMW AUC site looks like it's had a vinyl wrap roof panel done in matt black or maybe CF effect...?

Nice, well spotted. Does look like a matte wrap but could equally turn out to be cf up close. Bit surprised BMW didn't peel it off for resale..

I've done the roof of an Astra Spotive Van in CF, looks quite good for a vauxhall.

There are just so many A3's and 1-series here that have their roofs done in flat black vinyl or painted black.

I'm glad for the sake of difference, that my roof is done in a vinyl that not many are doing. I do like my car without it too, so it will come of some time - but not yet.

Your 1er looks amazing with and without the vinyl. Looks really sharp, love the alloys - almost looks futuristic!

You should post up a full picture gallery of her here!

As soon as time permits guys.

I haven't had the car for long, and I'm swamped at work, so as soon I get some good pictures of it online I'll make sure they're posted!

Thanks for the comments too. :spotman:

Okay guys, got to leave from an appointment a couple of hours early, so thought to catch up on some of the loose ends from this week.

*EDIT*

I have created a thread with the car. It can be found here:

Thanks for looking :fest:

I was @ Sytner's in Leicester about 8 weeks ago to put my car in for some work and in their showroom they had a red 135 with what I thought was a graphite roof or covering. There were proper BMW performance graphite parts on it, but the roof was something they had done themselves. And guess what car it was?

Evo mags red 135 longtermer! They've chavved it up! Evo fully upgraded the engine and suspension and put some graphite bodykit on it, so Sytners had the aforementioned vinyl wrapped roof done to match it. Sytners are UK's biggest Beemer dealership chain so I know they get first pick of head office cars (+ only UK Alpina dealership).

I can't say I thought it looked too great to be honest, but fooled me into thinking it was graphite from a distance. I would worry what the state of it would be a year or two down the line. I'm sure things have moved on from the 70's (i'm old enough to remember the state of my Dad's Austin Princess's vinyl roof in early 80's after a couple of British winters and hot summers had ravaged it..... and it was not pretty :wink: ), but even so it could still get manky way quicker than the paintwork and that would not be a good or easy thing to cover up i'd think.
