Ive been considering this aswell and i wont be going for one on mine. I love carbon but im not sure if it really suits the silvias? I was thinking frp just to shed the weight along with the boot lid and the two front wings maybe?

I want to get plastic bonnet, wings and boot, but i need to win the lottery 1st.

As for carbon on a white car, i love it :thumbs:, paint outside the lines of the bonnet white and leave a very wide V shape in the middle with carbon [\_/] - you get the idea :), only problem with them is, they want to lift and need to have bonnet pins to keep them down, so i've heard, i have no experiance of one.

Make the car look more aggressive i think, althought the S15 at the front there look good too, the 2nd one is different, think i like it best.

You would prob have to rib it down to roughen it up a little, but i dont see why if wouldnt paint :no:, maybe ask LK Drifter, he would know.

You can paint on carbon, and the paint doesn't lift.... just rub it down/prime so the paint has something to key too.

i considered gettin' a carbon bonnet instead of getting mine resprayed....
