I'd call the parts department of each dealer in close proximity to you and see what their price would be. If you can find the part online with a good price, perhaps it's worthwhile to see if they'd price match...

I did a quick search and spotted @Carson Toyota to be a sponsor of this forum. Might want to send them a PM or call to see what they can offer.

I think it would grab attention... I probably wouldn't do it but I'm not too big into exterior modifications either (aka I'm a nerd), so don't take me too seriously, lol.

You wont be saving any weight by doing CF on the front of the car, if that was a goal. The panels on this car are very thin and light weight.

For looks it would depend on what color car you have. It could look pretty awesome. Benefit might be that it stands up to hail better than the stock parts.


My opinion is this is purely a appearance mod and has nothing to do with better performance and/or handling. So I would not spend the money on the front CF for mine.

Fenders are 2lbs lighter front bumper will allow better airflow for the intercooler when I go fi and I have the 10series so ignition silver main reason I am considering this is because I got damage from a storm the other week don't want it on the insurance so planned on fixing it myself until I got the quote for painting it's 1200 to have a single fender painted oh and the cf fenders are 10mm wider so bigger tires haha

Storm damage should be a comp claim, which shouldn't affect your insurance. Never has in any of the 5 states I've had vehicles insured in.. I'd hope Texas is the same?

It is, or it was for me. Claimed the hail damage on my insurance had to pay the deductible and that was it. Insurance rates wont increase from a storm damaging your car.

So true...... but being the 3rd car in a 4 car wreck hurts the soul more than hail damage.

Way nice looking. I'd love to see in person. If your girl is half as hot as her ride you are indeed a most fortunate man!

I've got a Seibon hood and have been interested in the fitment their fenders. Are yours-hers stock or the 10mm larger ones?

Cheers
