I agree with Kwiksilver. I feel the A pillars look ok, but dont really match anything. I think and hope the carbon fiber is going the way of JDM... on its way out. It looks cool... but I dont think the tC is the car for it.
if you are going to do it, go all the way. and go for the real thing. The appliques are cool for the parts they go on. But for a hood ect. rock the real or dont bother. just one more thing to weigh you car down.
I think that the CFhood would look good on the TC because the top of the car is allready black from the glass. I have the silver streek and I think that the two tone look would look great specially if you have your windows tinted Limo black.
Yeah my only problem with the b-pillars is that they dont wrap around the whole window and cover up that black trim, they just stop, as far as the 2-tone I love that look, just think you would have to paint the A and C pillars to match the roof and black windows to make it look real hot.
I'm personally not a huge fan of carbon, and I think the hood is pretty much useless, unless you buy it for looks, which imo is stupid. The b-pillar appliques look decent, but like other people said don't match the car, and kinda stand out, as opposed to accenting it. I'm all about sublety, and carbon's a bit too played out for my taste.
ok for those of you who use carbon fiber as a accent instead of the intended use.. dont buy it, casue if your looking for taste and looks its not gonna fly. But if your going into the import and performance scene then to you all the best. carbon fiber is the by far the choice for me. light weight, strong as steal if used right, and to my taste like no other paintjob you could ever get. ne ways my thoughts on the subject. -BoostedTC
p.s. yes the stupid ricer kids out played cabon fiber.. but like the player saying gose... dont hate the player hate the game... dont hate the CF hate the stupid ricers who use the carbon fiber
My opinion is, if it's real carbon fiber used for performance... go for it... if it's faux carbon fiber stickers or material... spend your money on something else. It's kinda like having vinyl seats over leather, what's the point?!?!
Strictly from a performance POV, i was at the Grand Prix in SJ a few weeks back and saw a Scion tC pace car....the interesting thing about it was that they removed the entire glass roof and replaced it with a carbon fiber roof. If you're looking to shed a lot of weight from the car, i think its a great idea. Does it look good? I guess that depends on you...What do you guys think?
just about everyone in these forums talks trash about "rice".in my opinion carbon fiber anything gives rice the soy sauce.so with that being said, all carbon fiber to me is hot garbage. but i'm more in to looks rather than performance.
