anyone have carbon fiber kidney grills?

anyone have them installed on their car? preferabaly a JB or BSM car since I'm highly considering them but would like to see them in pictures first.

i feel like CF can look really good if applied in the correct places but it's very easy to go overboard and look super ricer

thanks!

I don't think anyone makes the grilles in CF; I might be wrong though..
