Newly installed carbon goodness

I love my 675LT from the start. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to spec it according to what I wanted. So I ordered some MSO carbon fiber bits and here are some of them installed.

Matte Carbon fiber bonnet

Carbon fiber sill top and sill sides

Yet to be installed are the carbon fiber side mirror wing arms and the matte bare carbon fiber rear wing.

Just want to post an update showing all the MSO carbon fiber parts installed. Bonnet, rear spoiler, side sills, and louvered fenders. Very happy with the result.

looks fantastic! I've always loved the idea of owning one of the prototypes, just feels like there's a lot of history with the car. Enjoy!

Oh my gosh, I want to steal your fenders.....Tried ordering but my dealer in Seoul has said that the UK head had responded back saying that the order will take 5 months, and they will not match the napier green paint. 5MONTHS!!!!????!!??!?!?!?!?


Anyhow, I have ordered the airbrake and the MSO Carbon steering wheels in alcantara. BTW, my Seoul dealer is charging me $12k USD for the airbrake (no gloss) and $40k for the thicker MSO Carbon steering and 10k USD for the thinner MSO carbon steering wheel. I have shown them the MSO pricing on those items from the States, but they've said go buy them in the states or pay $52k USD and receive them here.


The crazier thing is that if I buy MSO items from elsewhere then bring them to Korea, they would void my warranty. CRAZY. Talk about powertrip...

Well, I guess that concludes our business, together.

Still need the fenders for the LT and the steering wheel for 650 =P


There are multiple versions of the fenders. I have no idea which fenders and the steering wheels you are talking about, so if you don't mind, please send me the pics to my email. Thank you!!

Man that sucks - are you certain that's legal? Firstly the bits are genuine OEM McLaren parts not after market and in the USA the manufacturer has to prove that the "add on part" caused the failure for the warranty to be void. I can't see with a MSO part being added to the car how the warranty could be void? Sounds like scare tactics to me?
