fenders look nice thumbsup
the only thing i dislike is that your car will loose the clean look with the fenders being Carbon Fiber and the rest of the body not... unless ur plannin on paintin them... or if you want to be real bad ass just do the whole car Carbon Fiber thumbsup thumbsup

Werd. I wouldn't do it unless they are going to be painted. That is going to look off once you get them on.

I agree with silver's statement... make sure they're full Carbon Fiber. You could pull this off since your ride is black - get a Carbon Fiber Hood if you don't have one already, Carbon Fiber hatch, and any other Carbon Fiber exterior accessoties as you can imo...

i think you would save a lil weight if they are full Carbon Fiber and not wrapped confused confused but you can still pull it off cause you got a black car...

the fenders are super light. I cant see you losing more then a 1 lb combined from both fenders if even that.

I realize that. Both the stock and the carbon fiber fenders are "really light." There just isn't enough metal in a fender to justify having to replace it with a carbon fiber copy, unless of course you are obsessed with the stuff as I know many of you are. In other words, using carbon fiber fenders is not an effective mode of weight reduction, it's just for show.

true, carbon fiber fenders would look wierd. a Hood stands out alone but its not that bad asthetically. fenders go deep into the color of the car and would make them stand out that much more and look wierd
