Smile More Carbon Fiber everywhere!

I just got some more Carbon Fiber parts for the interior and the exterior! My theme is Alcantara, Red and Carbon Fiber, I'm not super hot for large CF parts like hood and trunk, but rather discreet(-ish) CF touches throughout both inside and outside. This is still a work in progress, as I want to get some custom upholstery next to complement the Red exterior color and the Alcantara wheel.

All the Carbon Fiber work is done by Carbon1, as always, high quality job.

Let's start with the outside (Mirrors covers, Fog light covers and Front splitters)





And let continue in the inside (Alcantara steering wheel, Paddle shifters, Full interior, Back console, Center console trim)













I'm now looking forward for JoeZ's Carbon Fiber Exhaust tips!
Also if you guys know where to find a (super) cheap '09 Navigation or Door handles, let me know!

i love the depth of color on the exterior. the very first shot looks amazing. there must be a few coats of wax on there.

There is NO wax on the first pic and the car is actually quite dusty.
But I have to agree the Matador Red Mica, is an incredible color that have so much depth to it, and sparkle in some lighting condition.

LOL, I had two color preferences for the F, Red or White, I would not had any other color, in the end I got a much better deal on the Red, so I went for it :-)
Carbon Fiber is nice on White too...

Front Splitters

How about a full frontal shot ?

Love the front Splitters ! Were they a one off custom order or is Carbon 1 retailing ?

The magic question, how much ?

Very Nice all around.

The Fog Covers are custom made by Carbon1, you'll have to ask him for the price ! The Grill is also custom made by me, it is a OEM grill surround and the lower OEM grill, I cut the lower grill to fit and work it out with an heat gun, and glued it in place.

I'm working on a photo shoot. The splitters are retailed by autotecknic.com.
For the price you'll haver to work it out with Carbon1!
