Check out: www.iptmotorpsorts.com. I believe the pics you saw are of their products.

get ready to fork over like 700 bux. not worth it imho. they would be much cheaper if they were carbonfiber over fiberglass instead of all carbon fiber.

This is why no one else has done this yet... rofl

The heat from the engine bay would melt the materials required to do CarbonFiber over FiberGlass... and if they dont melt, they would surely crack because of the constant heat fluxuatuations

3 years have gone by and one company has finaly done it correctly... way ta go IPT thumbsup thumbsup

The carbon fiber engine plastics would look pretty good under the Hood, but for the price they are, I would rather get the plastics painted whatever color you want. Gives your the same effect of a better appearance, just not a carbon fiber appearance.
