Automotive Fashion Disasters We Would Like to See Disappear (2nd of a series) — Carbon Fiber Stickers

This series is written by Ice Man, a well known personality in the auto performance tuning circuit. Often a judge in major car shows held nationwide, he is regarded as an expert in car enhancements and styling. Much like Dr. Gregory House on TV, Ice Man is borderline arrogant, painfully critical, and definitely one of the best in the motoring field.

WARNING: If you are reading this and have any of the products mentioned, I’m sorry for being too critical but it doesn’t change the fact that your car still looks “passe” and “uncool”.

Auto Fashion Disaster No. 2: Carbon Fiber Stickers

These were actually cool when they first came out,… for around 3 months. Once again we have a product that tries to emulate the real thing and caters to people who choose to not spend on the real thing.

Putting these stickers on car hoods, trunks, and maybe some other flat panels was kinda ok. But suddenly, it was everywhere: car interior panels, headlight brows, door pillars, and even steering wheels!

You know the old saying “too much of something is never good”? In this case, it’s just way too cheesy.
