Why are there no companies that come out with interior mods like something for the phoney carbon fiber and glossy black console? How about a whole carbon fiber package for all the cheesy cheap plastic outside, and maybe also for the chrome.
I see some guys make 1 or 2 things, but why not everything?
Why??
So many of us would buy!

D3 makes a kit but it does not include the obsidian. You may ask them if they can wrap it or do a special job for you.

+4 on small market.....setup time for these items is long thus making the price high because the demand isnt there.

even on the corvettes, the real carbon fiber pieces were very expensive and thats a huge aftermarket.

Yea the return time is about 4-6 weeks on my trim and the cost is about 1/2 of what is going around. You know whats worse than looking at oem trim ? looking at the white undershell for several weeks, ha

So this is what smurfs have been doing since they retired on thier cartoon show.. Watching it as a kid, i would have never thought they would have went into making carbon fiber pieces.. Looks like they do a good job as well.. :)

Call me crazy...but I thought that the center console in the CTS-V is the same as in every CTS model. Wouldn't the whole CTS production be a large enough market?

Yea but nobody really touches the center console. With any type of weave I think doing something large like the center console outside one solid color would look on the tacky side.
