    Carbon Fibre S14 Kouki

    Hi all, aside from the common carbon parts available for these cars such as bonnet, boot, door cards etc., does anyone know where I can source or have made interior parts such as the center console and dash and possibly exterior parts such as the front bumper/splitter/wings etc.?

    Seeing a lot of this about on other cars but seems quite limited in options for the S-chassis

    Thanks

    Wingfield Brothers - mega money but lovely stuff
    SRB Power - Pretty good value for money
    Grams Styling - Cheap and cheerful
    EP Racing - Questionable fitment and quality
    Tegiwa and Torquen have/can get some bits and bobs

    Are you asking about whether or not you can have interior and exterior parts made in carbon, because there are very few places that do those parts in carbon these days other than stuff from AliExpress.

    yeah, looking for something a bit special like you see at some of the shows, R35s have some mad carbon parts available for instance but like you say hard to come by especially for our cars

    Our market is not service as well as that.

    Wingfield brothers will sell you doorcards and centre trims for mega money, but their work is exquisite.

    We have plenty of hoods offered to us from eBay but better from DMAX, Chargespeed and Seibon.

    China eBay has Front fenders in carbon but expect them to be dog sh1t.

    Grams make a carbon over fender but again, I would expect it to be weak in terms of quality.

    Garage Defend used to make Carbon cooling panels.

    And for a while, a few companies made carbon replacements for the centre trim but they always fitted like sh1te.

    Apologies, must have forgotten to respond to this, very helpful information, have been in touch with Wingfield, gorgeous stuff but expensive as mentioned
    Where is the best place to buy seibon? the manufacturer website doesnt seem to have a way to order, I guess its trade only?

    Yes, they will. But you'll pay a kings ransom in shipping, plus duties, plus VAT.

    If you know a good bodyshop I have a Seibon DV that needs lots of work following an accident that can be rescued. It is going very cheap.

    Yeah i know none of this stuff is cheap eh!
    I contacted Wingfield (you put me on to them in the earlier post) to enquire about a carbon kouki spoiler made up, as you said they are gorgeous items but so expensive to us as they have to make up the molds being as they are one offs, so we have to pay for both the mold and the item!

    Amber Performance are the UK distributor for Seibon. Find them and see if they have them in stock. It will be cheaper, but brace yourself regardless.

    Everything went up in the last few years.
