Forgot to mention i also had them wrap the "diffuser" area on the rear bumper in gloss. I wish someone offered a not over the top rear diffuser in carbon.

you can kinda see it in this pic.

Tossed on my smoked marker lights and carbon front lip last night. Added LEDs to the markers as well obviously.

Lip fits pretty well for the most part. I am not really a fan of how the vertical spats fit against the wheel arch. Not sure what to do about it. All of them seem to fit this way. They should have took the time to mold the lip to match the curve of the wheel well, not just throw a 90 at the end. Youll see it in the last pic. I dont think there is anyway to bend or flex it enough, right?







Here you can see how it doesnt fit up against the curve.

That's horrible. Completely undrivable.

You should trade it for a purple Camaro.

Car is looking good. ZR1 spoiler on my wife's C6 is one of this winter's upgrades.

What is the road noise like in a C5? The C6 was really bad IMO (worse with the run flats) but a ton of sound deadening has really made it much more comfortable.

C5 has a limited aftermarket so he will likely need to go custom.
