On a side note, where can I get that shift knob? My Sport Premium has a boring all black knob.

Actually the rear diffuser is also a carbon fiber wrap. I didnt do that. I had a tinting place do that for me.

Yeah, the original muffler is just replaced with a smaller straight through muffler leading to the dual tips.

Thanks a lot. Yeah we originally bought the car without it, but later realized it was a must. One of the best mods for the back of the car.

Hadn't considered the red trim on the interior or exterior. Looks a little too much like the grille on a VW GTI for my taste, but the interior matching with it is nifty.

I've been wanting to experiment with Carbon Fiber vinyl for a few months now. Just haven't gotten around to it just yet. My Grille Wings are sanded/painted black to match the rest of my grille, but I might experiment and see if I like the Carbon Fiber look on there as well. I've got a 5-Door, so I think doing a Carbon Fiber roof would be too much. Looks much better on the sedan with window tint IMHO.

In 2 weeks time, im installing a kartboy SS and the STI 19mm RSB. Cant wait!!
Wow that looks awesome, I'm really digging the look of the CF. Did you have to take the silver trim inserts out to wrap them or you somehow managed to do it with them still attached to the dash?

Im wondering the same thing.

If its easy to remove the trim I would give this a try. Otherwise i think itd be too hard to try to wedge the vinyl into the crease and cut it evenly.

Might try the grill wrap this weekend. Even buying a few sheets is still 90% savings over the OEM mesh grille. lol

Looks fantastic! I'm usually not a fan of that highlighter green, but I must say you've pulled it off... and made it quite awesome! Vinyl decals to match look awesome, too!
