    personally i only really like carbon fiber on black or dark gray cars. i love the light weight but im not so stoked about the two-tone look.

    id like to pick up a cf hood an paint it for my own car.

    i disagree. it can be overused and turn ricey.

    cf pedals, cf e-brake, cf visors and rear view. it gets old. clean and tasteful never goes out of style. excess does.

    I've never liked the look of CF. Once I get my hood replaced with a CF one, it's getting painted.

    My seat is CF though, but you can only see CF on the back.

    I do like the CF, as for the lower hatch part on a 92 - 95 hatch... really... why do you need that CF? I mean, its not that heavy of a part. now like some one said, If your going to do a full race car and you need to be lighter. then its great. but, for a DD, too much. is just too much.

    I think the CF hoods look sweeeet. The hatch/trunk looks okay. And the front lip and those little front bumper splitters/cannards in CF are hella cool for show.

    Anything else ESPECIALLY those fucking cf mirrors is just plain ugly.

    I just found out last month at autozone they even sell carbon fiber mufflers...rediculous.

    add headlights and license plates and I'll take 2 of these:cool:.

    carbon fiber would be 16x as sweet if it wasn't so damn expensive.

    and yes, it can be taken to excess, and fake carbon printed anything, especially those altezza tails:puke:

    If you use real CF, then by all means, rebuild the whole monocoque with it.

    Otherwise, keep it off the car.
