You definitely should!!! I really want to do that to my car. I think it would be perfect on your car if it was like the EVOLVE S40, but like brian said, you should start with the roof. It will obviously look good.

Do it! I can't wait to see pictures! I'm going to do it to my car this summer. You could also try vinyl if you are unsure of how it would look. Personally, I think it's going to be perfect. Are you going to do the trunk, hood and roof? It would probably cost almost $1000 to do all three... just so you don't get sticker shock.

Do it like the EVOLVE S40, and it will look perfect, i've admired that car for so long.

Re: what do you guys think? (ExBimmerBoy)

Is anything that we do to our cars worth it? HELL NO. But does it put a smile on your face, HELL YEAH!

No, but honestly, I think you should keep the trim black, it wouldn't be too much black, especially when the black stops at the hood line. Black wheels too? YES!

A black bonnet is only permitted under two conditions:

1) the car is a black car, or
2) it is a carbon-fibre bonnet

As your car is gold, your only option is (2).

The try-hard painted black bonnet is very dodgy & sad.

Carbon-Fiber looks terrible when it's not painted. I would never have bare CF on body parts on my car, it just looks ricey. Don't try and stop him from doing this!

Re: what do you guys think? (deerok)

just my opinion but i don't think painting the mentioned areas would be worthwhile, i think the money you would end up putting into that could be used for a lot of other things, but just my 2 cents
