Hey guys, just curious if anyone has any pictures of carbon fiber kidney grills on a Interlagos blue. I'm ready to buy a pair, just need to see some. Tell me if you guys think It would look good.

Thanks much, Nick :M5thumbs:

IMO... i think the CF kidney grille doesn't look good...maybe because to me it looks to busy with the vertical slats and the contrasting weave pattern.... I would get glossy of matte black to match the black headlights. I went with the matte, along with the matte fender slats and rear badge to keep it cohesive. Again.. IMO.. to each his own.

CF Grille

Save your money and don't do it. They are laminated over a black grille, and with time they ripple, warp, or peel. My last one was of good quality but it just didn't look right. I think the black is better, and I finally went with the racemesh in body color. $600 after turning in my originals but so far the best yet. Just my 2 cents.

I don't think your going to be disappointed. Here are some snaps from when I put mine on.

Hi Nick,

I think the carbon fiber front grills would compliment your carbon lip nicely. You can check out a few pictures of them installed at our website.

I'm trying to make the same decision with the same colour car.
I might go with a gloss black, and see if I can get the side gills done in gloss
Aswell. My rims are gloss black so I think a matte black might not look right.

Bryan do you guys sell painted sides as well as the fronts?

Seeing it on a black car doesnt really help since we have IB cars and need to see it on that color. On a black car it looks great by the way.

These are the rims I went with, should have them this week.
That's why I was thinking the gloss black might look good. I do like the flat though.

Looks awesome! Thanks for the pics im glad I went with the gloss black rims. I was looking for gun metal, but the price was right on these :)
So I think it worked out fine after seeing yours.
So think I will just go matte black grills and sides.

Just have to decide now, springs or KW's. Want to get it done in the next couple weeks.

I have H&R springs only now and it rides nice, I did have KW coilovers but never installed them. I have head the KW's ride better and I would love to have my car a little lower.

Sorry for the thread highjack

Do you find the H&R's a bit bouncey?
Some people have mentioned that on here.
I was thinking dinan but I know the drop isn't so low but
The ride is great.
That's why I was thinking KW's
