If you are looking for styling go with a carbon/glass mix, its usually 1/2-1/3 the cost of pure carbon fiber.

If you are a DIY kind of guy you can buy carbon fiber weave and epoxy and do it yourself for 1/10th the price. Theres probably a hundred writeups and videos.

Otherwise plan on paying 600-900$ for a pure carbon lowers.

Ah yeah found it.

http://www.oppracing.com/product_dis...macmoto-lower/

not only is that the wrong year, the price listed is for the fiber glass version, not the carbon fiber version which is unavailable. And to top it off, it only fits an OPP racing upper which you would have to buy in addition.

Well painting is always cheaper than buying new, but you can always CF yourself.
EDIT: Sorry previous video was carbon fiber parts from a mold, I meant carbon fiber overlay.

google "50$ paint jobs" for all the people who use rustoleum to paint their cars and it comes out above average to good.
