I like the contrast it provides
It will match our Carbon Headliner too

since you asked. Maybe just me, but it looks like a bruised thumb. I like the yellow vettes when they do the black headlight replacement.

I'm not one for fake carbon, but they don't look bad. Honestly, your car was awesome without the mirror change.

With the hood, wheels, splitter/side skirts your car is killer. I'd spend money on a quality leather interior if you really need to spend $ on your car.

Those are real CF. I have some of the 3M carbon vinyl and it looks good, but not THAT good.

I've been wondering what CF mirrors would look like on VY. I like it.

Can we get a pic of the mirror side of the housing?

First off, you car is GORGEOUS! Having owned a VY vert, I'm a yellow fan, and you car is outstanding. The quality of the mirrors also look first rate. But, to be honest, I think they stand out a little too much. But that's me, and it is your car (and you asked!).

Even if I'm hesitant regarding the mirrors, it is a beautiful car.

Didn't know these mirrors existed. I like em. My factory mirrors have rock pits on them and CF would be a great alternative to the mirror covers. BTW you should go for the roof and halo too! Nice Z.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. They are real carbon fiber. Took about 2 1/2 months to make. Will take some pictures of the mirror side when I get back in town after the holiday weekend.

As for the interior, it has the full real carbon treatment, as well as upgraded leather consol, shifter/ebrake boots with yellow stitching, and Caravaggio Daytona seats in ebony leather/alacantara with Yellow stitching and yellow fiberglass backing. You can find additional pics in some of my other threads.

I didn't know that. Your C6 has to be one of the top 5 I've seen here on the forum. And I think it's THE best yellow C6 I've seen.

A couple notes, if you're keeping the mirrors I'd ad the carbon headlights to really tie the mirrors in. And if you have $ to burn you could do the roof and halo in CF too.
