Very nice! Both the interior CF work and SRT on the rear look great.

Carbon match

The weave is very close. The only difference is the direction of the weave, which goes in a different angle, but its not distracting. Also these carbon pieces have a thicker plastic coating on them, so they stick up a bit higher than the stock pieces.

As far as the other two companies you mention, I didn't check them out.

This Real Carbon Fiber kit was purchased from CarID

Theses are the part numbers and prices:

REMIN® - Basic Kit, 36 Pcs.
Material: (RCF) Real Carbon Fiber) $192.66

Be very careful when ordering. These guys are not used to people ordering the expensive stuff, and they tend to assume you want the faux stuff. Make them repeat back what you order!!!

I also recommend this:

REMIN® - Professional Installation Adhesion Promoter Pen $9.00

The sticks they give you with the kit tend to dry out before you can use them on all the trim pieces.

Also note that this kit was originally built for the standard GC, so there are a few pieces you will not be able to use since the SRT model has some different interior details.

I would call them as opposed to ordering on-line, they're actually pretty good.

I just took a moment to check out these other two companies you mention. As it turns out, I still would have gone with Remin, as they were the only ones who specifically spell out that they offer a REAL carbon fiber option. The others were too vague for me to have taken a chance on.

thanks for your help. i decided to hold off on the kit. maybe my type A personality, but i can tell the difference in color slightly also. most people won't notice but small differences bother me.
