    carbon fibre has officially gone too far! People are literally just printing it as a sort of pattern on **** now.

    Honestly I think we will look back and cringe.

    Was on a bus the other day and saw this:

    That's not Carbon though is it, its carbon effect and look at it. Black with white paint blobs cocooned in rubberized commercial soft touch anti slip OAP finish.

    Even the glass could be Carbon effect at the bottom !!

    Real Carbon does look nice, with proper depth, 3D and quite unique. Carbon Dipped, Carbon effect, Carbon wrapped, just looks sh1te, I mean really Sh1t.

    Must be a VRS bus then. They should spend more money and research in making the air-con work better !!

    The big mystery is why petrolheads everywhere are fucking obsessed with alcantara.

    Hideous material.

    LOL, good one, I have to agree, I don't get it at all, it feels terrible, looks terrible, is unhygienic, gets dirty, goes off quickly, balls, should have been dead with the delta integrale, oh and who these days wears a suede jacket !

    Oh dear I must admit I love a bit of carbon and alcantara I’m always I’m always looking in crappy cars interiors and thinking it wouldn’t have cost much more to do away with that crappy cheap plastic and replaced it with a nice bit of alcantara lol
