I'm partial to the plain black fibreglass one Marty...I'm not a big carbon fibre fan, but that is just my opinion. Plus, the fastwrx.com one is almost half the price hehe I'm a cheapass!

Well...they are BOTH knockoffs

EDIT: And now that I look at the pics, the "carbon fibre" one is just fibreglass with a carbon weave overlay...so double the price for a thin layer of carbon weave? No thanks IMO.

I like carbon fiber stuff, so you already know which one I'd pick... I'm guessing the fact that it's fiberglass with carbon fiber overlay is used to bring the cost of the item down (?) instead of for light weight purposes... meh.. it's a visual appeal thing, not really a performance piece.

That poly lip for the '06 is a Chargespeed replica, not a V-Limited, and it has those amarpauling side "wings" on the sides of it.... ewww!
