    I've finally nearly completed installation of all the trim parts covered in gloss rear carbon fiber as all as installation of a gloss CF spoiler. This includes front and rear diffusers, side strakes, and the nose cone. I wrapped the three frunk trim pieces but I have a set being covered in real CF and should have them soon, along with lighted CF sills. All of this work was done by Carbon Fiber Element in New Jersey.

    I've even wrapped the two triangular dash pieces. Of course this is all for appearance sake and consistency throughout the car, inspired by the CF dash that came with the car. Get a lot of complements from people who notice such details. Here are a few photos.

    I really like the end caps on the dash. Nice touch.

    Gorgeous, very clean. I think everything blends well and looks great. What spoiler is that?

    Love it all except the spoiler. If you could find an OEM spoiler and have it wrapped with real CF it would look much better than that one. That aftermarket one looks like one of those short hitler-like mustaches (from the rear view) and very out of place. The angle from the side looks horrible too. Sorry I'm focusing on that ugly spoiler, but everything else looks really awesome. great job on everything! lol

    Not sure, which is a sign that I'm afraid to add it all up. But I will and report back. The cost was increased by my ordering extra front and rear diffusers and side strakes for the work to be done. Didn't want to drive around for a month with my car naked:)

    What were the costs for individual sections, such as the nose cone (as an example) ?

    I spent about $3800 with Carbon Fiber Element. That included two nose cones, front and rear diffusers, and the two side strakes. Each nose cone was $400.
