I got kinda post happy and thought I could post a few choice ones that I liked... after getting a certain way down I realized there were far too many that I liked !!

I really like the little bits of carbon fiber. It's not overly displayed and placed everywhere in the cabin. There's enough for you to spot it and think "oh sporty" but not enough for you to forget what you're sitting in.

It also helps to think about it from a cost perspective on Fords end and this was a great way to work in carbon fiber while doing enough and not too much.

Doesn't obligate them to do anything more. At least with how much they've built up the Raptor brand, making full carbon fiber parts an option is doable. I would buy in.

I wonder if those trim pieces are actually full carbon parts or just carbon skinned plastic... ?

I'm pretty sure they're actually full carbon fiber. You're paying good money for the Raptor, I'm sure they wouldn't skimp like that, especially because there's so little used within the interior itself.

I may be the minority here, but I don't like the look of carbon fiber even in small quantities. I'd rather get piano black trim than cb. What I do like are the trio of lights on the grille. Small touches like that completes the Raptor look.

The three lights on the grill look really nice. The little red markers on the rear under the tail light seemed like after thoughts though. They look just pressed in there. I do appreciate piano black trim but I think I just like the carbon because of the design that catches my eye. When it's really clean and the light hits it right and the twill starts glittering, I like it a lot.

Like many others here i'm really set in with the carbon fiber trim but starting to think that i'll want to layer it with some tint film just to make it even more subtle, and that's something I know a lot of people wouldn't say no to.
