What would you say carbon fibre looks best on or does it look good whatever car it is on.

Personally I think carbon fibre is best looking on Jap cars. IMO it should be painted on other makes and models of car.

I'm not even that impressed with the look of the Pagani Zonda Carbon either. Was there ever a time when unpainted fibreglass was in vogue?:lol:

Not to be mean or anything, but the whole point of using carbon fiber is to make a car as light as possible and be very stiff. :blink1: Don't buy carbon fiber for its appearence, you're wasting your money.

Carbon fibre looks best on cars that will really benefit from it. Putting carbon on your mums 1.25 fiesta is a waste of time imo

Any big power car that will see the benefit from it then yes. Big fan of muscle cars with Carbon they look nice and at the end of the day its a functional mod

I love the look of it on the right car. But something I really don't like at the moment is people having sections wrapped in carbon vinyl. It's pointless, offers no weight saving and looks fake.

Don't go black bonnet mate. I found a carbon bonnet for you though: http://www.seiboncarbon-uk.com/pdut_detail_pic.asp?ItemID=818

If it's only looks wise then you could have it vinyl wrapped. Personally I'm against it but it is an option.

I wonder if you could get a carbon fibre sink and bath to match? :lol:
would be good wouldn't it, but you'd look like a right cock, but to be fair though I don't think they would think your cock if you had a CF bog after seeing you have a £1.5 million boat......

Yes I like it, as it's something different, might put a vent in it at a later date when I'm bored again lol

I think it looks good, you just need to better wheels now, go for some black wheels :)
Yeah, next thing is to spray the wheels black as they are starting to peel which will make a hugh difference. Might do that next week auctal lol
