Yes they are. 99% look like real carbon.

Decided to carbon wrap the chrome strip across the dash, around the screen and the steering wheel piece.
Used 5D gloss carbon.

Been thinking of doing similar things to what you've done to my car although mines silver so seeing yours look so good is making me want to get it done asap!
I work in a bodyshop so would be spraying the plastics rather than wrapping but same result in the ènd.
Also been thinking of doing this wat do u guys think -

Paint roof gloss black
Tempted to get shark fin ariel?? Any previous experience anyone?
Carbon mirror caps like scottys
Tempted to lower it abit but not sure yet???
Tint the windows
Add deflectors
Dewiper
Sunstrip
Change all bulbs to bright white leds!!
Toying with getting a little Opc style spolier too :D

Most of dash ended up in my living room.

The wrap on the lower bumper only lasted a few weeks as I didn't really like it.
I always prefer wrap as its reversible in minutes.

I bought x2 12v LED strips from Ebay and wired them to the roof light. There is a guide on here which is well detailed.

Hello Scotty I'm just wondering if you have any links to the led strips that you used for your footwells, and some information into how you wired them into the lighting so they come on with the door lights

A couple of 12v cool white 30cm strips with 5050 leds will do.

Scotch locks, 24awg wire and a terminal block.

Here's how you wire them to the roof light:

Fat grey next to yellow and black at the end.

I ran the 24awg cable from the centre of the footwell to the roof light. Then simply attached it all to the terminal block.
