Debating covering window pillars, input please?

Window pillars on the outside are starting to fade, shou I carbon fiber the window pillars? Or vinyl wrap black? Bimmian has a good deal on carbon fiber overlays for the pillars. My car is black, with black window tint, smoked corners and side markers and black shadow line badging, not trying to murder it out, but thinking maybe the carbon fiber overlays may look tacky or out of place any ideas? Ideas on precut black overlays for the pillars places to purchase? Thanks, Zach
