    I own a 2006 318ci M Sport convertible in Titan silver with a dark blue Convertible roof. I have been thinking of buying a hard top and was wondering if a dark blue hard top would look daft (like I hadn't gotten round to getting it painted) or would it mimic the look of the blue convertible roof?

    can Anybody with Photoshop skills can assist with a dark blue roof on a silver 3 series hard top?
    Thanks

    i don't think it'd be my thing. Only thing i'd consider would be a black and white combo and i don't even think that'd look right.

    Lovely combination silver with blue hood but hardtop always looks best matching IMO. Luckily silver hardtops are easy to source if you go down that route. (Photo a bit crude but may help you as suggested).

    also think the same... unless you was to spray the bonnet to match, black roof, black bonnet on silver car would look nice IMO

    Black may look decent, need pics really, big gamble to take!

    Dont think the blue on silver will go at all.
    Fabric has a different look to painted metal.. it will look offkey IMO

    thanks for your time to change the colour on the photo to blue, I'm going to be cheecky and ask if you could you do it with more of a dark navy colour?? As the roof I was thinking about is navy blue (mystic blue??) I can always get it painted and there is one going on eBay at a good price.
    Yeah I shall reserve judgement til I see it in navy but I am swaying back to the same body colour!
    Jus thought it might keep the convertible look but with the better properties of a hard top!
    Thanks for your comments!!
