    Yeah stock wheels will eventually be swapped out. Going for black wheels. Was debating having the roof wrapped with carbon fiber vinyl. Tints and tinted tails are next on the list as far as exterior though. I plan on building the motor to 300 or 350 awhp. After warranty though so this baby won't see the track for a few years. But I have extremely big plans for that ^_^. There actually carbon fiber rims out now that are 6 lbs a piece. I would love them but they are 3 grand a piece lol... But if I ever win the lottery then that is the route I'll go hehe

    I'm with Mike, I really like CF. Usually I'm not a fan of the CF trunk but since you're wingless and it really appeals to me. Great job!

    Personally, I hate that multicolored look. If it was painted to match the color of the car then that'd look much better. Just my opinion though..

    I like the hood in black CF, but I think that the decklid looks out of place. If it were me, I would have tried to get a blue CF look, like on the Veyron. http://www.4wheelsnews.com/images/ne...on_fiber_6.jpg

    That way you keep the CF weave, but integrate it into the blue of the car.

    To clarify, I agree on the paint.

    It needs paint. However, unlike the situation in earlier cars, in this case at least the front is not entirely useless, in that it does reduce weight (the earlier cars used Al, the later cars use steel though so it does make some sense). However, I bet 'glass would have the same effect, be easier to repair (?) and when painted nobody could tell the difference either.

    One (significant?) concern is how the new nose behave in a frontal collision.

    They are both seibon parts. And the whole it needs paint thing is funny to me. If I painted them my car would look stock and that's not very fun 0.o lol. Anyways I will never paint them. It's a waste of money. I thought about colored cf actually lol. But only after I already bought these. So maybe one day if I get bored with the look I'll change it up. Colored cf to my surprise is not a heck of a lot more money.
