I'm not seeing a lot or any discussion on this option. I'm interested in getting input from peeps who've gotten it as well as any warnings against it.

I've ordered my Cyber Grey Metallic coupe Z51 (7sp) with black wheels and the CF mirrors and spoiler. I like the way it draws out the CF vents and the more ominous look of the black highlighting in general.

I'd also consider blacking out my badges but not committed to that yet.

I'm not big on the rear spoiler at all in black. I like the lines of the new Stingray without the spoiler, looks more like the early Stingray. That said, I do like the look of the carbon flash mirrors and wish I could get it with the Blade Silver I want. I think they would look great with the carbon flash full body stripes. Since I'm waiting for the 2015 model, maybe they will make them an option separate from the Z51 package, which I don't want.

I like the option on certain color C7s, it's all personal preference. There's a photo floating around this forum of a CGM all blacked out. Looks awesome.

I can relate on the spoiler. I am a convertible guy inside and out but gave up the ragtop this time around because the coupe lines were too amazing to loose. I feel the spoiler does interrupt this some, but was a compromise I was willing to make for the rest of the performance package.

I personally like it. To me, I like how the black spolier "frames" the rear end in black. I like how the body-colored spoiler looks, too. It is really close for me, with a slight nod to the carbon flash spoiler.

the pic that prompted me to do the mods to look close to it, except for the wheels...get rid of the fish, and "darken" the car on CG:

Wow! Yes, that's the look I'm going for. Wish I cld afford those wheels, very radical looking. I do like the blacked out badge on the back. I wldnt remove the Stingrays though, I like them. I wld just black them out.

Where's that pic from, got a link? I'd like to see more views of it.

...the pics is from the HRE collection-easy to ghost the logos- see my build thread here for many more ideas and projects...

@glen e - like yours too. Ur flags look totally blacked vs the other where it looks like they just blacked the chrome - or is that just the shadows in ur pic?

Are your windows darkened, I'm thinking I'll do that too.

Ordered it in my crystal red tintcoat with black rims and CF roof. With all the black accents on this car, I think the carbon flash mirrors and spoiler just adds to the look.

@Emmdmd-That's my thinking too. Just a little anxious that I'm over doing it.

I ordered mine, TR with black wheels and CF mirrors and spoiler (major disagreement with hubby as he wanted chrome wheels and TR mirror and spoilers) He thinks I am overdoing it...but I think with the CF stinger stripe the car screamed give me CF mirror, spoiler, and black wheels. I also have the transparent roof which looks black from the outside...ordered CF but dropped it to push the order through and after sitting inside one with transparent roof glad I did. I pick her up on the 7th so I will let you know what I think in person...

I think in real C/F it looks great - the stuff you get from the factory is paint. On a Cyber Grey car you can barely tell and you can C/F the parts in high quality vinyl for the same money

Can you provide a reference to how/where to get this (CF vinyl)?

Here is my example of Crystal red with carbon flash racing stripes, mirrors, and spoiler. I absolutely love the combination after I got it. I was unsure until I saw it in person. I love how the cf helps contrasts the c7 along with the vents.
