Thinking about changing some parts to carbon fiber when i get my Roc,

1. The lower grill around the fogs and the mesh.
2. Badges...
3. The black strips below the door.

I know it aint a lot but too much will look OTT'

What you can think?.

it will look good but will be very expensive. A custom job is likely too as these aren't available. Besides, if you dont see the point in expensive lightweight alloys, you should see the point in carbon fibre ;)

sorry couldn't help myself, lol :lol:

Anyways good luck with it, looking forward to seeing pictures :cool:

I do under the reason for Light weight Alloy just not on the Roc... And I aint going to put them on for weight reason lol :lol:

Yea custom it be i'll get into my works workshop and have a play around, as for the price... I'l see how it goes if its too much i'll just cover the lower grill like a layer.
I've been quoted around £350 for the side bits and badges, not got anything back yet about the grill.

someone on another forum has got carbon badges imported from the states. Bonding of carbon fibre to the stock parts may be a cheaper way of doing it. A carbon bonded roof would look awesome but not so sure about the bonnet, although it's pretty heavy!

I would finish this sentence with "as long as it's well done" as there is nothing worse than a badly crafted and ill fitting CF panel, you might as well waste your money on a sunroof that doesn't open :roll: :roll:
