Greetings All

Had my FL5 for about 1 year now and absolutely love it.

Seeing all your posts with all your mods really had inspired me.

First off the chespest and most effective mod in the looks department for me was to spruce up the interior of the FL5. The seats are amazing , the layout of the dash well thought out but wasn't keen on the plastic parts. Made the car look less luxury.

This is when I decided to look onto carbon fiber parts for the interior.
I researched many companies but found one that seemed to have a good reputation CarbonMyRide, whom I had heard of and seen at various car shows in the past.

First thing I decided to do was pick up their steering wheel trim. This allowed to be test the waters without too much spending and would let me check out their quality, fit and service.

Ordering was extremely simple and the product arrived 2 days later.

Quality was great and the finish very nice. Put it into the FL5 and who would have thought such a small simple peice would really boost the interior.

This little peice now made the rest of the plastic Interior look cheap and in need of transforming!!!!!

First purchase was the center console. I always wanted the Homda OEM one but wanted it in black and grey weave and couldn't justify the asking price!

So when CarbonMyRide put out that they were now selling these and for much less I pulled the trigger. While on their website also added the inner door switch panels to match.

Few days later a big box had arrived when I got back from work. Packaging was from CarbonMyRide as the box was full of their logo on the tape and multiple "Fragile, Take care" stickers.

With total excitement opened the box and pulled out multiple Carbon goodies 😍 This was a weekday and so had to wait for the weekend to get it all installed.

Weekend finally arrived and with it a mini UK heatwave πŸ₯΅. But nothing was to deter me from getting hot and sweaty while installing the Carbon 😎

Installation was a doddle and everything is so simple to install. Remove double sided tape, align in place and stick down.
The precision of the fit is perfect and moulded exactly for the FL5. Fits like a glove! Extremely simple to install and best of all the wife even said it really brings out the interior to look more racey with a flair of luxury.

Overall extremely impressed and looking forward to adding more Carbon to the car. I have just noticed on their website they also do exterior Carbon for the FL5 and this will definitely be something I will get added soon.

Hope you enjoyed the read and I'll post pics and provide updates as more Carbon is added.

Little video review done on the day



TIA

Looks the business. Hope you can avoid paying the 'carbon' tax. Groan.

Looks great! Can you take some more up close photos of the center console especially around the buttons? I'm definitely interested in some of these parts as I don't love the red in the weave in the OEM one - plus it's like double the price...

Just a play on carbon fiber - there is no 'carbon' tax for upgrading your interior. Large companies pay - and trade -carbon tax credits for emissions.
Ah I get it now :) like ones Carbon footprint πŸ‘£

Bottom line - carbon fiber upgrades the look. And in some applications, saves weight.
So always a good call.

As some may recall I purchased a carbon center console for my FL5 from CarbonMyRide (CMR) and a few pointed out on a FB page the weave was not uniform/wavy in some places (I personally hadn't noticed). Anyway contacted the company earlier in the week and sent them pics I have to say their customer service is spot on πŸ‘Œ
They mentioned they accepted the feedback and the weave uniformity will be rectified on the next batch.


Not only were they sincerely apologetic but offered to replace and swap out the console unit when the next batch was in.


I asked instead if they could send me the inner door panels instead and today when I got home from work not only did I receive the inner door panels but also the rear cupholder for free πŸ˜€


I'll fit all this, on the weekend and take some proper pics. In all honesty adding such small detail really does uplift the car. Honda should have included this with their cars IMHO.
