Re: CF Tail Light Trim (lowenhart)

I think if it just went along the top edge (not bending around the back side) it would be much better.

Pleeze step away from the tail lights...unless you are just going to tint them, but not so much like PoPo Bait..er, uh...M3nt0s.

Not the biggest fan.... However, if you made an R steering wheel with a big bar of carbon fibre along the top, a la Ferrari, I'd be all up in them guts.

Yeah, I would agree that with the CF decklid spoiler, it would integrate very well. Cheers on individuality.

Re: CF Tail Light Trim (lowenhart)

I know there will be hate! I haven't decided if I like them or not. These are installed on a second set of tail lights anyways, so I can always swap my 09 lights back. It most definetly will look nice with the CF Trunk....

Re: CF Tail Light Trim (lowenhart)

I've never liked the look of the tail light trim before, but this....I'm starting to come around to. I have a titanium R with quite a few CF pieces around, including the deck lid spoiler. I think this might go along with it nicely. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

*forgot to ask* Is this a new CFwerks piece ?

Re: CF Tail Light Trim (Forced5)

I'm not a big fan of the side bit being chopped out, it's the same thing I don't like about the Evolve tail trim.

If this piece had the side bit filled in and was available as Fiberglass like the winglets are, I would very quickly consider this option and ONLY tint the top portion of my tail lights.

My feeling on carbon fiber is...it's an all-or-nothing effort.

If I went the CF route, I would...

CF Winglets
CF Mirror Caps
CF Trunk Spoiler
CF Tail Trim
CF Hood
CF all the '04 Body Trim, somehow

People might think this is
, but it would be my personal route to go. One little bit of carbon fiber by itself looks out of place and kind of nasty. Add more accents and it looks like it belongs there!

I have no idea what you're talking about...it's not like I have an appointment tomorrow to have my tint taken off because of a ticket or anything, unless I really do

I really dig it, I'd have bought the evolve ones, but they stick up to much from the tail light and don't flow smoothly with the lines of the car. From your last picture it looks as though yours fit fairly flush, if thats true I'd love to get a pair of those babies, paint them, and enjoy!
