Pretty neat.<p>Now make a front lip to replace the winglets. It has to be CHEAP...like the garage door seal lip. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

looks nice, keep up the good work. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>The hood is already aluminum, marginal weight savings at best... plus it already exists.

Re: (shagginwagon)

Where can you get the emblem? Other than yanking from a steering wheel.<p>Also, Carbon fiber roof and hood, just for fun. I'd like the entire top of my car to weigh less.

Re: PCC Trunk in CF Teaser (lowenhart)

that looks fantastic. <br>Please make a front lip (similar to a sport kit on an S40 perhaps...) <br>As much as I like the OEM body kit, the front winglets look a bit goofy

Re: PCC Trunk in CF Teaser (tomedkaz)

I could only imagine the hotness that a body kit could bring. Imagine winglets, side skirts, bottom bumper and the PPC trunk lid all in CF...on a Silver R. Ooooh...

Re: PCC Trunk in CF Teaser (m3nt0s)

I would sell my kit to replace it with a CF one, so long as the price was not ridiculous!

Re: PCC Trunk in CF Teaser (tomedkaz)

Don't newer models come with the iron logo on the back? I could have SWORE I saw a new Volvo with it, maybe XC70?...
