Holy cow, that looks awesome! I wonder how much it costs to wrap a roof in CF?

Also, what grills are they using on that silver mini? Something similar to the M7? I think I like the look of theirs better.

I'm seriously considering re-doing my joey mod and going with flat gray. That looks really nice.

Yah, It's along the same lines as the M7 in that it's just normal grille material made to fit the MINI. It's made by Garbino. It's a bit better than the M7's because they've got some nice frames to hold the parts in and they sit a bit recessed while the M7's sorta sit on top of everything. WAY too expensive though

this is the impressive part...not just a grille stuck into a hole. They've got a nicely molded frame for it

yah the flat gray is my favorite joey mod color...it looks so good. Still gives you the darkened look but preserves many of the details and offers a little less contrast.

Exactly, that's what I like about it so much. If they made that to fit on the back of the jcw aero kit I'd be all over it.

i agree, but I dont think it would give enough contrast on a red car i.e. mine lol so as much as I love it I think im gonna go with black still and leave the rings chrome....
