That might look nice but the splash guards take a beating and the cost of carbon fiber on the splash guards will make you cry. Even if you coat them somehow they will get destroyed. I say this from experience as I put apsis splash guards on my Z and they are taking a beating . They get rough and fuzzy because they are doing their job. Splash guards are the way to go but CF might need rethinking.

Im an anolog guy stuck in a digital world so no pics on the forum. But you can see pics of the splash guards on apsis web site. Cant tell the difference from the stock splash guards unless your looking for it. They ate easy to install and do there job but like I said they are taking a beating. You also might want to consider your locatoon. Our roads up here are terrible. Florida roads are much better so your wear and tear would be less. Apsis makes a good product but they are expensive

I'd have the splash guards wrapped in Xpel (or similar), and just plan on having to pull and re-do them every few years depending on driving habits.
