If you want carbonfiber. VIS is notorious for sun fade so if you park outside a lot expect it to turn yellow/look cloudy within a year.

Seibon makes really good quality carbon. Other then that, I can't think of anyone else.

My friend sunny reyes told me i can just spray clear coat over it wen it comes in the mail to prevent color fading .. As soon as it arrives .. Would that work instead of spending more ?
