2X2 VS 1x1 Carbon HELP.

Im looking at a front lip from one supplier (1x1 CF weave) and a rear diffuser from another supplier ( 2X2 CF weave) can you see a big difference?

Can those of you that already have CF pieces tell me if these are going to look bad or will it not be noticed.

Thanks

There are plenty of vendors who sell rear diffusers in 1x1 weave to match the front just in the sponsors classifieds.

1x1 - no directionality to it like 2x2.

What about 3 x 3?

I noticed some of the CF mirrors are listed as 3 x 3? They state that these are supposed to match the CF roof. Do they?
