IMO.........Hmmmmmm :jawDrop:

:confused: That is just WRONG :confused:

What the hell was that person thinking when they decided to make that hideous looking IS. If you have the money to waste on a full carbon fiber body kit and a shitty looking hood wouldn't you atleast paint the frigen thing. This person is going down as a MORON in my book!!!!

No. Reminds me of these ricers with civics and can't afford to paint their Ebay body-kits.

I like how HondaSchmonda's car looks too he didn't go over board like the other guy did. I dont think i could let anyone i know personally do that to their car lol

the contrast is too crazy. had he done it on a BO or a GGP it wouldn't have been that bad. Ugly hood IMO tho. An OEM style hood would have been better. As for honda's car, it looks better because all the pieces done are clustered to gether and there isn't like a random trunk in cf. but he also has gunmetal wheels to go with everything and so on. IDK

the ebay guy needs the carbon doors and roof as well, that way it will look like it got rear ended instead of looking like he ran into something.i say carbon is meant to be hidden or used as an accent, not a centerpiece. my car is BO and if i ever got a carbon hood, i would paint it like this (obviously in black tho):

I think if your going to do that much carbon fiber paint your car black or something to help blend it in!

Anything more than a carbon hood or lip alone really just looks like crap... This thread proves this.
Not entitrely true, there are many cars out there that have carbon fiber hoods and trunks and stuff like that. I dont think that it is the amount of carbon fiber that you use that determines whether it looks good or not, its how well you blend the carbon fiber with the paint and body lines of the car.

That's your opinion, I was just sharing mine... If the car is black it won't be noticeable, but it still won't look as good as if it were all painted. To be honest I think unpainted carbon only looks good in very small amounts, and on a very select few cars. But things like carbon bumpers and fenders really look horrible to me.

I just think it looks bad because it is white. I think if someone did that on a BO it would look decent with the unpainted carbon parts. Thats just my opinion though.
