i dont think i would cabon fiber anything. I dont think the dash color and carbon fiber match.

<------------------------Just my opinion though.

all that matters is that you are happy.

I think carbon fiber looks sweet, but not on the vents. If it was the whole vent it would look sweet.

I'm thinking, if it was darker, instead of the black on white, black on grey might look better. Not such an eye sore...in my opinon anyway.
