So long story short. Just after a crazy ice/rain storm in northeast kingdom. A patch of my clear coat from my roof came off? I bought the car for my daily driver so I could park my b6 for winter. I want to get it fixed, but don't want it to turn into a big $. I was thinking about a quick fix in wrapping the roof black? EBay 3m wrap for 40$. What are your thoughts? Thanks.

That's gonna be your cheapest bet! If it's not a car you really care about that's probably the route i'd go. Otherwise you're looking at refinishing the roof. Not overly expensive, but not near as cheap as a wrap.

Step 1. Drive the B6
Step 2. Remove all the shitty LEDs
Step 3. Bring the B5 to an autobody shop for repair

I swear this will do the trick

Get some carbon fibre wrap to cover it up. Will offset the extra weight of the sunroof

Assuming you don't have comprehensive coverage on the car?

But yeah, black roof wrap may be the best bet otherwise.

Roger. 10 4. Yeah I think that's the plan. Its my daily driver/winter driver so only have required minimum coverage. I have full coverage on my newer A4. :) I will take it to get a quote on what it would cost to refinish it for the heck of it.
