    Rear Corners: Carbon or Titan

    I've just bought some Irmschers rear corner splitters for my coupe, with the intention sprying them the same colour as my bodywork. But then i had a thought, what about carbon dipping them like my wing mirrors and interior parts?

    The only thing about that - would i then need carbon skirts and a carbon front splitter?

    i'm still undecided on that tbh mate. mall the carbon ones i've seen are stupid-sized Jap offerings. Ideally i want an 888 spoiler but i know that's very unlikely. I was thinking maybe just a carbon lip spoiler.

    On the corners front, i think i'll stick to Titan, but maybe carbon mud flaps?

    I really am into CF but its gotta be genuine not stick on or paint on rubbish.

    I'd say go carbon it'd really stand out against the colour of the car.
    Its a jam thing

    nah... i just do think it would look right... unless you get the skirts done and the spiter if you have one. i reckon it will also depend on the colour of your wheels aswell. If they are silver they, then the spitters might look off key where as if they are black, then the spitters might look good.....
    might be worth doing a couple of photoshops.

    if they aren't body coloured then it'll just highlight the fact that they are just two stuck on bits of plastic. Won't look right imo, especially if you have body coloured skirts and front splitter
