Hey people, go to my profile and check my car out so u hav idea what im talking about. I have the VIP type 2 kit in the garage. I have toyed with the idea of getting it painted black and putting it on my silver xb. Keep in mind i have the black CF hood and spoiler and i plan on getting the CF fenders as well as the fender flares (bbist.com). I think thwe black from the CF parts and the 5% tint would set it off. I just think this would look like a tuff-ass setup, plus i have never seen one like it. Just wondering what u all think.

i honestly think it could look very half asst. such as "oh that guy couldnt afford paint on that car after he wrecked it" or whatever. i say rock it TCM and forget CF fenders. just do flares if you do it. (and make sure you get some VERY aggressive wheels to match the flares)

eeh i disagree, i think that if you painted the kit black and put flares on it would like sick, i think it would only look half asst. if it was flat black or somethin, a jet gloss wouldnt look bad. the only thing that might look a little funny is the side skirts. but i think it would look super :)

alright i did a quick 5 min photochop sinec ppl disagree, and i think its uglier than i pictured. the black and CF are going to clash so bad IMHO. all black cars can pull off A LOT of carbon fiber awesome. all silver cars can do A LOT of CF awesome. black/silver cant do it. its just fugly IMHO.




please dont do it. it just doesnt work. do the kit justice. paint it. ditch CF stuff. get low. do aggressive fitting wheels!

Yeah, I'm with Scotty on this one. I dont think it would look quite right. Just my opinion though.

Yeah you guys are prob right, it was just a thought, maybe if the kit was carbon fiber but i do agree that the black wouldnt match well with the CF. That photo shop pick helped lot, granted it was crude, but shows the diff in shades. Thanx all, i will get it painted to match.

...i think just the CF flares and widen out the wheels will look tight. Maybe some black rims with deep chrome lip.

another prob with the black body kit is that at night there will be the appearance that your car is 10 inches off the ground. Since its dark out and you have a TCM, the black body kit will just create an illusion that your toaster is really high off the ground. Dont do it, would be a disaster IMO.

just to let you know the cf flares form bbist will tkae you months to get. it's gonna be at least 45 days to start production on the fiberglass ones and couldnt even guess when he'd have thr cf ones.

This was am impulse thought, to be clear, IAM NOT DOING THIS, LOL. It just wouldnt work. And re: the CF flares, yeah i talked to bbist the other day and they told me the same things. I have also decided against the flares too, LOL, i change my freakin mind by the minute. This weekend i removed all my decals and the rear wiper to give a cleaner look. Thanks everyone

Personally, i LOVE CF. Nothing matches the clean shine and look that is has, not to mention its light weight and style, its worth the extra few dollars, just save up a little longer and get the best---Carbon Fiber
