How does this hold up to car washes though. It looks shiny now, but what time frame are you looking at for it to start fading? I figure after a few washes and some really hot sunny days, it will start to come apart. Curious to know.

IMO, it looks good.
Good question. I'm not really worried about it fading or coming apart, and there's a couple of reasons why. First, I NEVER wash my car - I only use Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Detailer to wipe the car down about once a week. Second, I have covered parking both at work and at home, so it's never in the sun.

Not working for me. I had a Scion tC with that look. I would have paid money to ditch the glass and have a CF roof.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

I imagine the people who don't like it will like it a lot better once you get those rain rails in black. Also, what happened to your CF hood, Javy?

Man these "Rice" comments will surely come full throttle when you do haha... I think it would look rather nice with the CF hood and the black roof. Maybe if you painted the sides of the hood so the center piece is black/cf all the way from the grille to the rear window.

Bad*** but it wouldn't like as nice on dark colors such as blue onyx pearl or black but maybe on SGM. Nice job overall
