On roof and trunk it was to hide scratches from having branches fall on my car during autumn New England storm. Could almost buff them out but not quite, plus I thought it would flow better with the cf hood and make it look a little different, I've had a lot of compliments but given from the kind of admirers you might not pursue (dayum that looks dope etc.) but I think Don Ns job was top notch lets just face it you guys do not like a lot of mods; I do not court the FnF crowd but I am modding for both performance purposes and to customize a bit to be uniquely mine. I mean... Bilstein, BBS, Dinan, UUC, ACS, ECS, BavAutowerkes, Turner... It's not like I'm covering the car in APC stickers and fake performance parts...

As for the interior trim, I simply do not dig the myrtle wood over tan, feels very Lexus to me. Much prefer Eurosport looks... Now that I've sourced a black interior, need to find something to replace wood and have two extra sets of cube trim. I guess I'll wrap one and paint the other (blue? Silver?) and see which one I like best. Ill keep oem set of wood to reinstall at some point and sell whichever set I don't want...

Do you reay like wood over black, or even tan? Doesn't shout sporty to me...
