You can’t go wrong with carbon fiber when it comes to car styling. So we’ve put together a list of the top 10 carbon fiber accessories you can buy for your ride.
Everyone loves carbon fiber car modifications. That’s a fact. When it comes to car styling accessories, nothing beats some of that sexy black weave slathered all over your car. It’s just exotic, looks expensive and, when done right, enhances any machine it’s fitted to. Contrary to popular belief, though, there is such a thing as too much carbon fiber. You can overdo it, and then your ride runs the risk of looking tacky rather than tasty. Unless you literally build the whole damn thing out of carbon, but that’s taking things a bit too far.
So, we’ve put together this list of what we reckon are the best carbon fiber accessories for your car. Pick any of these (because not all will apply to every car) and we reckon your ride will be looking mega!
Best Carbon Fiber Accessories
Carbon Fiber Grille
Small, subtle touches can make all the difference, and that’s exactly what a carbon grille will do for your car. It might only be a little thing, but seeing that sexy weave gracing the front of your car instantly makes all the difference.
Carbon Fiber Hood
This is a big one. One of the priciest carbon fiber accessories you can pick up for your car. But, damn, do these things look good. They’re almost always more aggressive, vented, and just downright awesome. Leave them unpainted to get all the attention. Or paint them and leave some carbon details showing for a more subtle look. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong with one of these on your car.
Carbon Fiber Splitter
A carbon splitter is one of the first styling mods anyone does. It’s easy to see why, because one of these bad boys will instantly transform any car you add it to. It fills out the front bumper, and it makes your car look lower. And, of course, it adds a whole heap of aggression to the front end. Slap one of these on whatever you drive, and it’ll be instantly transformed.
Carbon Fiber Side Blades
Call them side skirts, call them side blades, or call them Geoff. Whatever you call them, we don’t care, just fit some to your car. The days of weird, twisty side skirts are long gone, and in their place come slender side blades. These slivers of carbon might be slim, but they make a big impact on your car’s styling. They instantly make a car look lower, wider, and really fill out those flanks. Just be careful not to kick them getting in and out of your car…
Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
Like we said, sometimes something small can make a big difference, and that’s exactly what a pair of these will do. Car manufacturers have been using various different mirror caps to make their special models stand out for years. A pair of carbon mirror caps is instantly noticeable and will make your car stand out from the crowd. And all without breaking the bank.
Carbon Fiber Diffuser
As far as we’re concerned, there are few things out there as sexy as a carbon fiber diffuser. A fat, aggressive diffuser does wonders for any car, especially if it’s made from carbon. One of these will deliver that aggressive, motorsport-inspired look we all love. And whether you keep it smooth, or pick one with fins and things, you can’t go wrong.
Carbon Fiber Trunk
For those of us who drive cars with trunks, why would you not carbon it up? Whether you opt for something standard-shaped or go for something with more flair and aggression. And whether you show off the weave or paint it to just leave the lip exposed, a carbon trunk looks sexy as well. This is probably one of the last carbon fiber accessories anyone adds. So putting one on your car is like saying carbon? Completed it, mate.
Carbon Fiber Spoiler
Whether it’s a cheeky little one, or a massive ironing board hanging off your trunk, we all love a spoiler. And the only thing we love more than a spoiler is a carbon fiber spoiler. One of these sick flicks of carbon curving up from the edge of your trunk or hatchback makes all the difference. It makes your car look like it really means business, and it just screams performance. And if you’ve got a carbon splitter, well it needs a friend at the back to balance things out, naturally.
Carbon Fiber Wing
Of course, if a carbon spoiler is far too small and subtle for you, then there is another option. You know what they say: go big, or go home. And we don’t think you want to go home, do you? Let’s be real, a carbon fiber wing isn’t just big, it’s a big commitment. There’s scary drilling to be done, and then you’ve got to make sure the whole thing is perfectly aligned, and properly secured. But when you see that glistening carbon soaring skyward, you know it was worth all the effort and not being able to see out of your rear-view mirror.
Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tips
Back in the day, it was all about shiny, polished exhaust tips. Nowadays, if you want to show that you’ve got a top-end performance model, it’s all about black exhaust tips. So why not go one better and slip some carbon fiber on there? Carbon fiber exhaust tips look fancy, which they are, and expensive, which they’re not. Slip some of these on your car, and everyone will think you’re running a top-dollar exhaust system. Easily one of the best carbon fiber accessories you can buy.
