You'll get attention..

but it wont look all that great..
There was a M3 around here at some carshows, that had a full carbon fiber body, and it didn't look all that great at all..

if u want the attention tho, then yea go for it

It will cost me a good 3 grand but is it worth the trouble and grab lots of ATTENTION... Also puttin 18" RacingHart C4 gunmetal polish lip and maybe 19" multipiece in the back.... cus if its not worth it i rather just CF the front of my car instead the whole thing

and yea its hard to find CF rear lip and hopefully i saw a CF mugen side skirt...Import Fan has them but dont look all great

why dont you just get carbon fiber hood & fenders, and find a way to make the nose look CF and then just blend the paint into it somehow. kinda like the nose of your car is CF but the rear is painted. IMO that would look hot (i just personally wouldnt do it).

^I just read that and i hope it makes sense LOL.

You can do what my friend did to his S2K. Put carbon fiber vinyl on the WHOLE CAR. Then take it to a paint shop and have them put a crapload of clear coat on top of it. Looks like the whole damn car is true CF!!!!

one of the guys i "work" for just bought a 2002 Ferrari 360 Modena. He is a body kit manufacturer and has a ton of money so he can afford to do this. One of his partners does very nice CF work so he is having his ENTIRE Ferrari redone in Carbon Fiber panels everywhere. He's probably paying around $10,000+ because it's all custom, there arent any premade ones. then after he does that, he's going to sign up for the next "Canonball Run" which is like a MASSIVE race of only HIGH PRICED cars, ie. ferrari, lambo, and all those sexy exotics.

he's one lucky guy.

if it's the turbo m3 that you are talking about, then yes, it's very ugly---> but there is a reason behind it, the car is not FULLY real CF, the CF on the door penal, top, and most of the body parts, were molded on (used real CF sheet, and molded on to the body) that way the car is really ugly, but in another hand if you buy all those good quality CF parts from good after market company, then i think it will look awsome, but i don't think any company make that many CF stuff for our cars....
the wave pattern on the CF makes a lot of different!!

If you're just replacing the OEM parts, you won't get that much of attention other than 'oh, that car has CF'.

What you might want to think about is to get a wide body design or one piece front end so it doesn't look it was pieced together which going to make your car look it was well thought, well designed, and professionally prepared.

Another suggestion for your roof, instead of doing CF roof, how about recreating Accord Type R with glass roof. That should be tight. I haven't seen anyone doing it. If you have the money to spend, I want to see you doing it first, bro. Plus, if you can, have somebody fabricate you a sunroof based on Porsche 911 Targa with the removable glass piece slide underneath the rear window.
