i like the graphics on the rims, but will have to see how it's paired up with the car, and the color of the interior/exterior

wow the wheels look nice...still enjoy the real carbonfiber look. Its missing the depth and the 3d weave look. But overall dipping its a great process.

A very cool process. And it looks like you did a clean job. But NOTHING drives me more crazy then fake carbon fiber.

The wheels look ok but I'm looking for the OEM carbon leather look for my center console and steering wheel that came on my dash. I think it looks horrible putting the carbon fiber (that glossy/shiny look) on the center console. Certainly isn't cheap but really looks cheap IMO. I like the subdued look of the OEM dash carbon leather.

Don't try to imitate carbon fiber . It's like wearing fake Louis Vuitton products

I don't like "real" CF, let alone fake "real" CF.
