The carbon fibre look no longer has the association with hi-tech and quality it used to - every second oke has vinyl "carbon fibre" stuck on his Golf bonnet

Yup

Itís easy to spot too.   If itís real, Show it.  If it is a decal.  Donít.

Stick some drivers in, then we can judge better.

What about proper carbon fiber?

I quite like the look if it is the real deal

+1

A picture perpendicular to the camera would also give a better picture of the entire look

So if it is a decal donít.  You are trying to promote these as solid honest local value.  Fake carbon fibre doesnít fit that and would imo do harm.
