personally, i love the matte chrome/aluminum in a black interior
it gives a great contrast, not to mention with the IR interior.....

If you get carbon, I think it will just blend in rather than stand out

But both are hot IMO

You have the perfect interior as is

Yeah. I think CF looks better as an accent or a MAJOR weight savings piece. Not as a theme.

I'm not a fan of the CF trim, you interior is good as it is. black-chrome/aluminum and red are good contrasts.

I personally like the CF look, it gives the car a bit of a sporty look. In the sun it also has a bit of dimension that you really cannot get with the faux look CF trims that come with the ZHP package.

I love CF I think it looks classy. Personally i think wood looks cheap these days since so many cars have fake ones.

Just my opinion.

Like I said, I think it looks better as an accent than a main theme.
