I am not sure if these will work with the Federal Lotus Elise ...Derek said:Mark mentioned in another thread that he would like to see carbon fiber dash trim offered for the Elise. I think it would look pretty good on the Liz nd would likely purchase it for my car if offered. What do the rest of you think?
I know now that you've never actually seen the inside of an Enzo. I've been in the Enzo. The dash is covered in lots of carbon fiber. For some reason as I sat in the Enzo "cheap" or "Civic" just didn't pop into my head.OneFastMiata said:I think the main reason carbon fiber is equated with a civic rather than an enzo is because the enzo doesnt flaunt it. It just is.
On an enzo the carbon fiber is structural, a part of the seat bucket or something to save some weight. On a civic its an "add on" or replacement add on and put in very conspicous places so that everyone sees that its "carbon fiber". They even make sure it has a pretty weave.
Of note, Carbon fiber can be alot heavier than its aluminum or standard plastic counterpart but civic kids just want the look.
When I see a dash/door sills/ add ons/ decked out in carbon fiber I think cheap.
If I see a seat skeleton/integration made out of carbon fiber I think weight reduction.
Derek, the dash in the Enzo is not covered with CF. The whole dash and most of the car is made from CF. If you wanted to pull the original dash out of the Elise and make a new one from CF that may save weight.Derek said:I know now that you've never actually seen the inside of an Enzo.
