    You can buy DIY kits to do it yourself at home (or in your garage)

    Didn't think it would be cheap when I saw it getting done. Suppose for trim stuff it might not be as bad as a wheel.

    ^^^ depends on the company
    iv been quoted £450 to have my interior trims coated and £150 for 4 wind deflectors...

    You can buy the transfers and all you need is the activator.
    the rest is easy, but let it dry and then clear coat it.

    Its only expensive because people will and do pay silly money for it because real carbon also aint cheap. Supply & demand etc.

    Considering a light weight dry carbon 2x2 weave (300g sqm for example) is about £30+vat (per sqm) and a similar prepreg (LTM26 for example) is about £90+vat per sqm, having things hydro dipped isn't as expensive as it "could" be lol

    Altho IMO its complete an utter tat but meh

    £450 to have your trims dipped? Jesus you could have them wrapped in real carbon for the same money, or get a used set off ebay for a tad more. When I get round to it ill be doing all my S Line trims in carbon when I have a spare weekend lol
