Not enough contrast between black and dark blue. I say no. Black roofs look good on white, silver, and red and pretty much all other colors thats are not close to black.

Go for it. Those colors should blend well. Might have to get up close to even notice.

Hmm.. I am not sure about the black top. I agree it will be more noticeable on lighter colors. The blue is dark and even at night, it looks black.

I'm going to add a poll for you.

Good luck!

Sorry man, not enough contrast. What's the point in doing it if you can't tell it's been done?

I agree. It doesn't have to be obvious. People will have to look harder.

You need to do a lighter color. Black will not be noticeable and that would be kind of pointless. If the black roof did something for the car itself, then yeah but that's only for looks so it wont be seen really, pointless in my book.

First off, that's one good looking Lexus in those pics. Second, I agree with everyone that it won't show up on your car. Maybe try silver or white for your roof. And third, it's your car, your style. Do what will make you happy! Good luck with the mod bro!

I like the black roof and while contrast is nice, it is a change that many may miss but you know its there.

It looks great on your car, but your car is a lighter color too.
