Throwing some CF on my ZHP to see what sticks

Haven't posted here on E46Fanatics in a long time but thought I would start visiting more often. Now, I love Carbon Fiber, but in my opinion it should be subtle and not to overstated. Therefore over the last few months/years I have been accumulating some pieces here and there and finally put them on.

CF Arqray Lip (non-molded)


(i know, dirty bumper and missing a fog light cover)


Matte CF Vinyl on Roof


CF Lip Spoiler


CF Diffuser


Misc pics:
Threw the roof rack on there to see if I wanted to run with it for a while or not


Without the rack

Very nice, it all looks great. Did you lay down the vinyl yourself?

Yes as Carbon put it, they can be tricky to fit flush. Mine has a noticeable gap when you crouch down and look at it level. I've tried just about everything to get it flushed up but finally said, screw it, so that I don't break the CF by accident.

I was going to do it myself but I didn't have the tools or any know how so I took it to a local vinyl shop and had them lay it.

Get rid of the roof carbon though. Too obviously wrapped and matte on the entire roof just doesn't blend at all

That is actually one of the things that people come up to my car and ask about I like it because it is a subtle stand out piece and the matte isn't too much contrast against the Jet Black roof rails

Car looks great! I was wondering if you could post some pics of the roof in daylight? I'd like to see a few different angles On the center caps I have to agree with Alex...I think the black BBS center caps would go more with your ZHP
