CF wrap interior, yes I think it's overplayed and doesn't look very good.

ZHP cluster needles are part of an OE option. The only way to get them is to get a ZHP cluster and code it for your car. Sharpie mod is...basically the same thing, though I personally wouldn't have done it if I didn't have a ZHP.

Sharpie mod isn't trying to trick anyone into thinking you have a ZHP. Brembo caliper covers are trying to trick people. I'd even argue that the CF wrap interior is an attempt to mimic black cube trim, but it still doesn't look nearly as good. I wouldn't do it.

The two things you mentioned are interior modifications for your eyes only, not gaining any performance benefit. As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing wrong with doing whatever you want to your interior. You're not trying to trick anyone into anything.

My cf wrap is not a performance mod. Also, it was needed because my wood trim (which I hated anyway) was cracking, and my a,b,and c pillars were sagging.
Check out my diy on this. Not tryimg to be a zhp, just wanted a wood free sportier look.

The only good part of this thread is your sig.

Edit: And your sig changed. Bring back the Imola/Imola hotness. I find it fap worthy.
