    Only in Italy! Pointless use of rare and exotic materials to add credibility with no substantive gain..... I want it!!!!!!!!!!! :-*

    Thats hilarious. Doesnt actually look too bad, to be honest. Not worth the time and effort spent, but definitely stands out from a crowd! I wonder if the portafilter is aerodynamic and lightweight?!

    He could have at least done the whole thing! (splash guard & Drip tray cover!!)

    only a mother..........
    Not my cup of tea. The straight edges and lack of curves and lines look ok in stainless but in black.........

    The switches look ugly on it too. If they could change the switches out for toggle switches it would look better I reckon. Surprised they didnt use something more like this to go with the carbon

    They also do this one.



    $125 mod on both machines. Cheaper than I thought. Imagine if the option was from the factory. Would cost twice that.

    must make the machines faster I had a laugh. Carbon Fibre in cars is an instant 15hp gain so both machines must have about 15hp.

    Either that or they buy skins from the abbatoir. The animal is already dead for meat and doesnt need the skin any more. ::)

    Perhaps the skins of PETA supporters who ticked the Organ Donor box on their drivers license.

    Easier said than done; vinyls are wary creatures.

    The intro says its "carbon fibre STYLE". Not the real stuff presumably. $125 seems awfully cheap for carbon fibre.

    I think youve got the wrong manufacturer Chris. Im sure its by the well known German company, Gross & Grosser.

    Might be nice while it is new but wait till it get rubbed or scratched *::)
    Most likely using stuff like this http://www.decalfx.com/carbon_fiber_sheets.html Also gets used in the model aircraft industry along with fake carbon board (black resin impregnated glass)
