Carbon fiber Look is over

Anything that isnít carbon fiber for a reason is now dead and done.

Checkerboard carbon fiber is as cool huge shoulder pads and rolled up sleeves.

Carbon seems to be alive and well when it comes to intakes.

Only because most of them are only available in Cf so you can pay x4 the money for them

Funny that it is getting strong over there, it died it's death over here over 5 years ago. Everything was carbon look but now considered cheap looking now.

So supercars and dropping CF?
Not from what I see.
If gone, what replaced it?
I know gloss black seems a trend.
To bad neither holds up well on exterior of car.
Show car only.

I do like the forged CF grated and sprinkled on my grits in the morning.

Not that I support or hate CF but with your statement, what info follows?
Is this your thought or was this declared in the news.
Need more info for topic discussion.

Agree on black wheels but I still like some CF mainly on interior.
