    Has anyone received a Charger with the black roof option? I am looking forward to some pictures. I imagine this is a pretty rare option as most will elect to just vinyl wrap the roof instead.

    I ordered mine monotone after I saw pics of the black roof. The idea of the roof being black for no reason and then having to pay extra for it seemed ridiculous. I can understand the black hood on the Challenger to an extent because it's for the crowd that wanted a Challenger T/A and never got the original.... mind you it should be a cost savings, not extra, but the roof... no thanks. Paying extra for a hood in black primer like how they ship every new panel with a shot of clear over it... and as much as they ask yet... yeah.......pass. I mean yeah they have to paint it a separate color but why you want extra for the wrong color and just flat black yet I will never know. It's funny because I don't remember the year.. 08 or 09 but the rockers came black because Chrysler was too cheap to paint them... guess it should have been an upgrade option lol.

    Cost savings ? They paint the car the shade you ordered in the Brampton plant , once built the car is shipped to Detroit to have the hood / hinges removed them painted black they then reinstall the hood then ship it to your dealer and you think it should be a cost savings ?

    The black roof option made no sense.

    A dealer in town has a white car coming in this week with the black roof. This was a stock car they ordered - no idea what the sales manager was thinking in selecting a black roof. Silly if you ask me they paid >$1500 for the roof to be painted instead of getting the upgraded leather interior. I'll see if I can snap a picture since I drive by the lot daily.

    If anyone in Southern Ontario wants a white Charger Hellcat with black roof PM me for dealer info. Status showed the car in Windsor facility getting the black roof painted last Wednesday.

    So roofs get done in Windsor , so Ground Effects must be doing them.1500 for the roof really , that's insane. Yeah I would of definitely put that money into the seats first.

    Yes, looks like if you order a black painted roof it's at least a two week delay for the car to get to Windsor and then shipped out.

    Personally a black wrap would be more cost effective and you could remove it if you get tired of it down the road

    I assumed quite correctly as scoutermike points out they would not allow black painted roof option on a black car. Maybe I want my roof painted white though... or red... heck while they're at it paint my hood B5 :)

    Seriously though I'm surprised they just paint black over the clearcoated factory finish.
