Default Carbon fiber mud flaps

I have searched a few different vendors and have not been able to find a nice carbon fiber replacement for the crappy plastic mud flaps on our cars. Does anyone know of a vendor who sells a quality CF flap. I just purchased a CF spoiler and rear diffuser from APR and would love to finish this off with the mud flaps. Thanks for any help with this.

You might try Cianci C7, I have a diffuser from them and I am quite pleased with the quality. I really like CF pieces and have an ebay search alert for it. A set of side skirts and the rear wheel well front guards popped up this morning and looks interesting. It is advertised as 100% CF. The seller is boosted_85. I tried to post a link but found out that you can't post an ebay link. I'll bet that the guards could be purchased separately. I did buy the hydrocarbon rear mud flaps from John at floridavettes and I am quite pleased with those. Perhaps I am too easily pleased. Also bought a real CF steering wheel recently, from an aerospace fabricator in Florida, and I really like the way it plays off of the rest of the CF on the ZR1. If you find any other good resources for CF please let us all know.

I have the same diffuser and rear splash guards and they are nice.
The seller of the splash guards is good as long as you don't need to talk to him or have any issues whatsoever. If you do have a problem arise...................

I also purchased the same pieces from APR and was wondering if these mud flaps are going to have an issue as well. Like you, I would like to get rid of the cheap looking plastic mud flaps and complete the C/F finish.

This could be a problem. Spending good money for a product and then the fitment arises because of the conflict of two different companies.

Your car looks great! That was my second choice of color. I went with white. Was it the fitment or the quality of the product? Thanks for the info.
