Wrap Decklid Spoiler Coupe in carbon fiber?

Should I wrap it carbon fiber? This is how it looks right now. The Decklid not on yet, was thinking to wrap it first. The front and back silver trim is already wrapped carbon fiber.

I'm not sure how it would look. Part of me think it might look tacky.

I personally think carbon fiber looks ricey. Do as you please, but I'd say no since you asked.

Body color spoilers look best in my opinion. Carbon fiber or any other non-body color looks cheap and aftermarket.

Carbon fiber is kinda played out at this point. Real carbon fiber is used for weight reduction purposes, and I don't think your car would fit the description of a car that needs weight reduction for racing purposes, lol. Just my opinion!

Who cares about weight reduction. If that wrap increases HP, it's already paying off

Hurry up and get the wrap done, and post some pics of how it looks. A CF wrap is the most conceivable option as there's currently no real CF option available at this time.

Importantly, don't be afraid of looking like a ricer, as Honda's and the Accord have already established itself as being the choice platform, and reputation for being the epitome of race inspired cosmetic enhancements.

I know it's become kinda must have option, but if I had a car in white or silver, I would probably had the roof, the trunk lid and the deck spoiler overlayed with real cf. Even if it doesn't make a ride a racer, it looks good to me. Still, it's preatty easy to spoil the car lines adding too many distracting details...

I think it would stand out nicely as the roof already had the accent color. If it was just the spoiler alone, then it would be questionable.

Glad I had it done on my sedan. Also look up CF hydro dipping. Looks more refined and glossy than wrap. Do it... because race car... because storm trooper...
