that thing isnt even that heavy though..... the only way it makes sense is that it doesn't flex. i had mine off on my blue s so much that it bent out i couldn't close the trunk right.

The first thing I took out at the track was that cover. So weight reduction isn't even that necessary.

Mine helps with my audio a bit cause my subs are back there. I can tell a negative difference if it's not there. I don't need a carbon fiber one though. Not for $200.

They must have a market for it, if they really made a mold and it is 100% CF. It may just be CF laid over the stock piece, in which case it would actually add weight

Actually a friend of mine mentioned something about getting one of these if I remember correctly. It was going to be free but it had to be mounted really oddly, as in it didn't just slip into place(somtething about attatching it to the trunk lid), so he wasn't interested.

Then again, it could just be a one-off. It is eBay, after all.

Maybe he made it, then all of his friends made fun of him until he cried, so he decided he'd sell it on eBay and rid himself of the embarassing piece.

At the same time, if he is doing a show type car and it is removable, it could work. After all, the pre 05 cars had issues with the stock fit.
