That does look terrific! How did you deal with the 'notch' in the mirror? Any seams visible?

OK, extra pics taken today as the car was cleaned, but raining again, lol...

The quality looks OEM carbon fibre, having had CF mirrors on GT3’s, etc..

I’ll get some close-ups of the mirrors over the weekend

Looks great! What made you decide not to wrap the entire lower bump?

The inset “blades” were body colour to begin with and didn’t look great to me - think they look good now with the glossy carbon which nicely contrasts to the more matte black plastic bumper. Too much would be overkill in my mind.

Bit more detail to show here on the mirrors. There are different parts to the casing of the mirror and the installers told me if they used carbon fibre wrap in all sections then it would end up with a miss-match on the pattern - so we agreed to go with a gloss black on the lower rear section. It looks fine and it actually pretty well hidden as you would have to kneel down to see it properly in person.

I love the look from the drivers seat - they have been really well fitted and looks just like a set of CF mirrors to me - I never look at them and think they look anything other than proper CF.
