    Looks really nice! Do you have any pricing info? Also, what is that under your nose cone?

    very cool! What material and color did they use. I ordered some "carbon fiber" material and could not install it as I did not like the appearance.

    We've seen all the other CF mods before. The seat back CF is new and very visible; love it!! Hope it holds up better than the black plastic that gets scuffed up a lot.

    I believe those are laser diffusers.

    Sorry, for delay but wanted to get the full price breakdown. First, yes those are laser diffusers. $1499 for front and rear spoilers. $1499 for seat backs and $799 for grille. Material is 12k carbon fiber with a hybrid flexible resin with a urethane clear coat that matches car. They said they are willing to ship.

    Is that $1499 each or $1499 for the pair?

    The only part of the OEM design I don't like is the shiny black plastic nose. This is the perfect solution. I'll be ordering one right away.

    Agreed that the plain black shiny nose is bland-looking. As an alternative to a custom molded CF nose, last March, I got a local installer wrap the nose in 3M Carbon Fiber Black vinyl. It looks great and has aged well. Cost me $100; I'm tempted to switch to the Anthracite which is lighter; this time, I'll get the shiny strip under the logo wrapped as well. There are many other probably-kitschy options too.

    Did anyone end up ordering these? I'm curious how hard it is to tear apart the seats to install.

    thanks

    What is the technical difference between the 3M Carbon Fiber wrap vs the 3M 'Anthracite' Carbon fiber wrap?

    Nothing. I've not seen it in person but, from the pics on the 3M site, it looks like the Anthracite is noticeably lighter so, may look more pronounced (the effect I'm going for) than the darker Black CF wrap which is what I have right now.
