Maybe it's just me, but if all the wood was replaced with carbon fiber (subdued colors) wouldn't it look decent(my 300SD has the dark blue seats)? At least that's the thought I had. Does anyone know of someone who does good Carbon Fiber work, preferably cheaply? (sorry if I'm totally off topic, should I start a new thread?)
