the carbon fibre looks well sexy, especially with your seats.
have you thought about maybe going carbon on the covers behind the rear arch in the boot? i reckon that'd be a nice touch.

 Thanks scratcher.

 Not sure the bit u mean mate..  do u mean the boot plastic strip that the Reno badge fits on?  I was going to get a carbon rear roof spoiler...  then I suddenly realised it would be gone as soon as I left the car anywhere!  (some pikey would pull the thing off and run off with it!) but I have plans for more interior carbon in the future.

Hey baz,  I've got some carbon door cards coming in a bit to match the other bits in there... so they will be on soon'ish.  I've just got another box of bling! lol..  it wasnt quite shiny enough   :wink:

Still awaiting some other chrome so I can get the new brakes on..  that will be good!  I'm going to get a new brake master cylinder..  not happy that the one in there is upto the job...and its done its time now.. so I'll give it a perminent holiday.

Have a few things in the pipeline...  :idea:   even tho I dont know what half of them are yet!    :shock:   (I feel some suede/alcantara coming on)

 Hey Baz,  I enquired about getting the door cards made to shape but they were a bit expensive...  I was quoted the moulds to make them would be 600 + 400 for the parts  = 1000 !   :lol:   so decided to go for the flat cards  :wink:

 After thinking about it,  having them made to shape can look a bit too much..  (like your over doing it)  it has to be kept to suit the car..  and I think the flat ones are better suited to the 5 and not too fancy looking.  I think they will look good, better looking than the originals.
