Carbon fiber trunk and hood on NHBP. Need opinons!

I just got rear ended and its perfect time to get my carbon fiber trunk and not even have to pay for it. So im going to go ahead and order the hood while im at it too but ive had a couple people tell me that my NHBP civic would look stupid with a CF trunk and hood. I didn't think it would look bad at all, i need opinons. I eventually want to paint it Championship white but i love the cleanliness of my NHBP. HELP please. Your input is appreciated.

Re: Carbon fiber trunk and hood on NHBP. Need opinons!

CF and NHBP will look good, it won't be obvious except in the sun.

Personally I'm staying away from CF exterior parts from now on tho, my hood cracked after a lil over a month. It's not worth the hassle for a DD.

Re: Carbon fiber trunk and hood on NHBP. Need opinons!
