In a dilema

Whats up Pz,

So i came accross some CF fenders that were for sale and i thought that they would go pretty good with my CF hood that i bought a few weeks ago. So basically i just want to know what you guys think of them? Maybe if i could cut them to put the side marker lights they'll look better? Or do they look Like they belong in a car in the Fast and the Furious? cause thats the look that im NOT going for.

thanks in advance

4th gen prelude carbon fiber fenders

I personally love CF.
If you like them, get them. Don't get them b/c other people do/don't like them.

Re: In a dilema

i would say it depends on the color of your car. personally if i had a white car i would think those would look dumb on it, but black or another dark color may look pretty good, and you will shed some weight.

Re: In a dilema

I'd get them, but I wouldnt have them on for a DD. Put them on for shows only, so you don't run into damaging them. Then you can brag to everyone that you got carbon fenders lol.

Re: In a dilema

Man get them. They look awesome, First time I have ever seen carbon fiber fenders. If I lived in NY I would be all over them, They are cheap and light weight (bragging rights), they would go great with my CF foglight bezels. I'm trying to go for a CF theme.

Re: In a dilema

They sell these on eBay and I think the number one problem I've heard about them is that they don't fit perfectly. Even the ebay listings say you have to have tools to bend CF materials to make it fit.

Re: In a dilema

take one of your fenders off before you go and check the alignment by just slapping it on there before you buy it

Re: In a dilema

I honestly would pick it up in a heartbeat. Cf of course isn't perfect fit, who ever said it was? And about that little slit on there. If you don't like it, bend it out and revacuum some more cf so you have a new oem style fender.

$150 is a steal even if you don't rock it.

Yes, you're right. The ones on ebay are fiberglass or poly-fiberglass.
