Ya know, I have never been a fan of carbon fiber, but I have to admit that this stuff looks terrific! I don't understand what it is, though...the site isn't clear, maybe it's the translation. Are they reproducing parts IN carbon fiber, or are they doing overlays that are clear-coated?

It will cost you $15,803 if you have a manual transmission. A bit more if you have a tiptronic.

It's all out there fairly reasonably priced on eBay, in salvage yards, and in the For Sale areas on the different forums. (Most of these pieces came off either this board or Rennlist.) You just have to move fast before I grab it first.

This is my spare stash here at the house. (Sorry - not for sale) I've got more in the shop and several of the cars pretty well loaded with it. It's nice, but it really doesn't go with every interior. It tends to laminate and crack if it sits in the sun too.

I had assumed it's overlayed.

Note color and finish choices.
