I agree the yellow one with no rear door handles is OTT, but there are lots
of tastefully modified cars in the pics.

I've never seen it for sale, I guess your only option is the fake stuff- or
just make it yourself from real CF. If I had a type 44, I'd repaint the
wood parts in high-gloss lacquer, like the optional trim on the new S3 and
A4. The S3 has 'piano finish' black, my brother's '02 A4 has grey trim.
Looks very restrained and nice.
