    I'd never pay the coin for true carbon fiber. Just my opinion of course. I've seen some hydro-dipped pieces that are stunning. There was a red carbon fiber under hood that I loved. Still cost over $600 as I recall to have the entire engine bay done, but God it looked great!

    Please, no hydrographics. Better to keep them stock if not going real carbon fiber.

    What? They are COVERS! It's all for show, so, if anything, carbon fiber covers are worse...

    I tried to buy the carbon fiber engine cover for my 09' CTS V from Lingenfelter, but I was informed that they quit making/getting them so I ended up getting a 2.55" upper pulley, I'm glad I did this because In retrospect I think 1400$ is a waste for something that is rarely, if ever seen.

    I've had hydrographic process done to my engine and its now 2 yrs old. Total cost was about $700 including shipping. The picture was taken with some water spots on it, but they will come right off. I like the look for the money.
    CF was out of my budget and I still get a lot of people that give it a thumbs up when I show it. You treat it just like paint and it holds up very well, even with all the heat under the hood. Just another choice. Cecil.............

    You might fool the minivan moms with hydro dripped parts, but to be kind, they're not convincing, at all. It's like those brake caliper covers on ebay that are supposed to look like monoblock calipers. from 50' away it looks almost like the real deal, but then you get closer, or you notice they're plastered on a V6 mustang with a stock exhaust and the illusion just doesn't hold up.

    They are covers. Carbon fibering anything that is a cover is pretty ridonkulous...

    Covers - intended to look pretty.

    Carbon fiber is prettier.

    We'll, the LSA isn't exactly a pretty thing to look at either.
