Just curious if anyone has used any Carbon Fiber fenders and bumpers? I have been eyeballing the Carbon Creations front bumper and fenders but was concerened with overall fitment and quality of these parts. Thanks in advance

Haven't heard the greatest news in terms of fit and form on CC. I went Seibon for my hood and still have little gaps here and there. Never as good as stock in terms of fitment but I can live with it. STUBS on Insta had both CC and Seibon and said he would stick with Seibon for all future purchases.

I think the Seibon stuff looks great but cha Ching! $$$


Best of luck!

Thanks that info totally sold me on which one I want for my car. Rather pay a tad more then worry about fitment issues.

Howd it work out?! Post us some pictures! Cheers!

Let ya know once it arrives. Been building my IS for about a month now. She is just about done aside from the trans swap. The fenders are bonded and duckbill in place. Spending a lot more then I planned but this has been a dream of my to have a 1JZGTE swapped IS for a while.

From what I've been reading, at least for hoods the Seibon stuff fits fairly well.

As others correctly said, you should never expect OEM quality from the aftermarket...meaning it's extraordinarily rare to get that. Even on stuff like TRD branded parts, which are not made by Toyota...they do not fit like stock. My only previous Seibon hood was for a MKIV Supra and I thought the fitment was terrible...but this is a different platform and product which people tend to say they do much better with.
