I've been looking out for anything but there's nothing yet. It'll come at some point. I mean Seibon sold half the car for Hyundai Accent and there's zero aftermarket support for the last two generations of that car. Seibon Does have a test fit program you can sign up for at the bottom of their site. They're in Industry, CA, though. No good for either of us.

I was just looking around yesterday for some carbon stuff. I am looking for a carbon engine cover something like this for our engine.
OH I remember those from the Corolla9 Forum ! They also have the TRD versions somewhere..
But yes I'm patiently waiting for the aftermarket to catch up as this vehicle has so much potential!!!! D:
I'm looking for a version like the DS style from a 09 gtr vented carbon hood if I go turbo (see attached photos) or a scoop like version like (with or without vents) from a 03 Impreza wrx for our vehicles. But to each there own!
(Sorry for my typing I'm those people who think alot of things & have opinions lol)

For that matter, anyone looked into replacement interior trim pieces? I ran across some at a site called WowTrim, but don't have enough posts to include a link. :serious:

There are several Carbon Fiber options, in various colors. Not cheap, but does appear to be pretty complete - except for the hatch area. Have not looked to see if can find them elsewhere like eBay though.

Testing to see if I can post links now. Besides carbon fiber, they also offer wood and other types of trim kits.

On my 2009 Corolla S I had the engine cover hydrodipped in carbon fiber after I turbocharged it. It turned out great and for only $140.

Interesting, on their website it says they're interested in making custom parts with an order of 20 or more, I'd love to get CF I had a VIS carbon hatch on my gen 1 xB, and I miss the weight savings and immediate recognition that CF gets! I'm in San Diego, so I might be able to talk the wife into loaning my car to a manufacturer for some CF goodies (we both have already talked about getting some carbon on this baby) and as for vinyl or anything other than real CF, I've seen it look nice sometimes, but just like putting Brembo covers over calipers, faking the funk isn't really my style.
