On the LTS Carbon Series I just don't find myself loving a fully bare black carbon car. They do look impressive given the efforts involved, but I just don't yearn for the look of carbon fiber quite that much to drape an entire car in it.
I think it could have been interesting to do one where the painted areas were all gloss carbon, and the areas traditionally left in carbon were instead done in satin. I'm sure there are others who would shudder at that idea, but I think the contrast would have been cool. It appears that two LTS CS owners were able to get portions of their cars tinted and they look great, but the majority look to be gloss black and that's not my thing.
All that said, joining the MSO HS club would have been it for me, without a doubt. Even better is the fact that no one else chose my preferred spec so I would have fit right in.
