cf vinyl wrapped mtech diffuser?
 
I was just thinking while I was in the pooper.... anyone ever think about cf vinyl wrap their mtech plastic diffuser??? :4ngie:

Thats kinda douchebaggy isn't it?

I mean, a CF diffuser would equal sex but starting to put fake CF on the diffuser of your car is getting into Honda territory. I don't think there is CF vinyl either, its just a wrap. I'd like to see glue that would keep it flawlessly on for a reasonable time in the weather and at high speeds (more than a year)

yeah that's real absurd, please don't do that that's extremely gay...what color is your car, I'm assuming white or silver

i'm not a fan of the cf vinyl that people are using. just doesn't have the 3D depth, gloss or look of the real thing. but if people are fake cf vinyling their roofs i don't see this as being any less inappropriate. so to make fun of this and not the other things like roof and interior trim seems odd. if i had to do this, i might be worried about the heat causing an issue by the exhaust.

dont be cheap, they sell a CF diffusor as an OEM part at the dealerships

there were two threads this week on them. it had someone's contact info who would do it for you at a cost. both threads are deleted now so maybe the mods had a complaint from a sponsor and had them pulled.

A fake CF roof is just as bad as a fake CF diffuser.. I guess I have double standards on the interior trim though, don't ask me why lol.

thanks:thumbup:

think if I get one, I'll probably just get an a/m one for a quarter of the cost.

but good to know!

So if cf vinyl isn't accepted then maybe some gloss black? but then again, the "why not just paint it" argument comes up.

Alex323Ci 09-06-2009 08:18 PM

thanks yeah the ACS is expensive, but unique.
i would not spend $800+ for that CF part myself. the CF vinyl that people have been using is a matte finish and that's not often the visual look people want for CF accessories. i still don't think it's as terrible an idea as i said two threads last week had all kinds of praise for the roofs. as there is another thread for the roof within the year.

they sell a CF diffuser on ebay for like $200 shipped. of course it's ebay so you never know, but I'd be willing to bet that it's better than vinyl.

Racinghart 09-06-2009 08:46 PM

Get the real thing.

Novare330 09-06-2009 09:34 PM

youre going to vinyl wrap a part of your car that has one side sitting very close to and is exposed to hot exhaust tips/muffler and exhaust gasses?

that + the fact that its vinyl = discoloration and fading very quickly, at which time you will either live with the ugly discolored vinyl or you will have to go through the hassle of scraping it off (it will be melted onto your difusor) and re-wrapping it

OEM IS expensive, no denying that, if you can afford it and want it bad enough, its a beautiful piece, the OEM weave is BAR NONE, but if its too expensive for your fancy, check this out :str8pimpi

OP, you owe me
