Confessions of a Carbon Fiber Addict

Someone (many people) once told me that an interest in carbon fiber (CF) trim quickly becomes an addiction, more it becomes a quickly expensive addiction.

I wouldn't say I dream of CF upgrades for my Porsche 911 at night or it's always top of mind, but I'm certainly reaching a point where I need some objective advice from friends to help me draw a line at the point where enough is enough. Maybe I'm at that line already, but as far as I'm concerned not yet... but I'm getting close.

So far I have installed several CF trim pieces to my car, each documented in DIY videos on my YouTube channel. Here's a quick run down of everything I've done so far and what else is on my wish list...


Sports Chrono Housing - Aftermarket part in OEM Porsche CF finish/style from MACarbon

Door Sills - OEM Porsche parts from

Dash Trim - OEM Porsche parts from


Up next... what do you think of these ideas?

Center Console Trim (OEM) from

Door Handle Inserts (Aftermarket) from

Airbag Door Spears (Aftermarket) from

James, James, the question is not should I stop, but why don’t they make more stuff in carbon fiber that I can buy. Anyway, I’d say the center console is a must have. Door handles, meh. Airbag spears, maybe. Regardless, what you’ve done so far looks great.


Thanks John! There's no going back now... :)

Carbon fibre with curves always look good... So airbag and door inserts would get my vote.... Link into the dash trim too. .... Alternatively, a cheaper option, remove the carbon fibre you've fitted, get a refund and sit there looking glum!...
