Customized? Carbon fiber wrap isn't reducing weight at all...

OP never said that a carbon fiber wrap would reduce the weight and, yes, this car IS customized.

I think the carbon fiber wrap hurts the car's value. I would remove it if you're serious about selling. The number of people who think it looks good is far smaller than those who don't like it. Less people looking at the car = lower selling price.

My point.. And it's not a performance gain so why cheap out if there's actual carbon fiber parts for our vehicles.

Probably because it's a huge waste of money to buy real carbon fiber. The performance gain, even on a track car, would be minimal. If you're really looking for performance gains you could probably spend that money more wisely elsewhere. I bet 99% of real carbon fiber parts are bought for cosmetic reasons. So if you're only doing it for looks you might as well wrap it, it's cheaper and reversible.

Edit: that wasn't the point of my post either. Even if OP has real carbon fiber parts I would suggest going back stock and selling them separately. He will get more for the car and a better price on the aftermarket parts.

Lol uh... $1000 versus $50 is a pretty big deal. Why would anyone install a trim piece for performance gain? You're out of your mind.

A race car wouldn't even have those installed. No one is buying a real CF TRIM piece to gain performance

OP, I can appreciate you love the modifications you've made to your car, but the fact of the matter is you're dramatically narrowing your market with all those modifications. If there's anything you can do to move back towards a stock look, you'll probably have a better time selling it.

So your suggesting we should all be buying cheap, ill fitting, and potentially dangerous cf hoods? Unless it's made by BMW, I wouldn't trust it on my car. I'm willing to bet one of these aftermarket hoods couldn't withstand a single Chicago winter without cracking.

If I wanted that look I would definitely have done a wrap like OP.

Trunk weighs like 60 pounds man. Reducing the weight there is major. The trim all together is maybe 7 pounds.
