Carbon Fiber vs Painted
I installed the TRD Carbon Fiber Engine Cover, But not liking it. I am now thinking about going back to my painted version or buy the OEM cover in Carbon Fiber. Please give me some input.

Dont much care for the TRD cover... I'd rather have the IPT ones.

I think I will go with the OEM Carbon Fiber engine cover. Even @ $500.00 I think it will be more impressive.

If you don't like it, but you want carbon fiber, you can try IPT, but I'd read their feedback on the celica boards before you do because they've had some HORRENDOUS customer service as of late.

Yes thats true. I have the TRD cover, and I like it. The IPT pieces are great,but that is too much money I think, atleast while there are other Performance mods that I need to do. I think the factory plastic cheepo thing it came with looks gay. I never saw a motor with a jimmy hat on it before this car!!
