Does anyone know how the exterior Rexspeed carbon fiber stuff holds up to the sunlight ? Was thinking of getting a few items hood scoop, vents, mirror covers ect. but I am curious how the finish holds up to the elements. My car is not garaged so it's exposed all the time. Any information would be much appreciated.

You can get anything to last longer as long as it's taken care of. I can't speak about carbon fiber, but with the exterior on any vehicle, as long as it stays clean with a proper waxing to help protect the paint you'll be fine. You'll have issues with the interior fading before your paint or clear coat.

I just didn't know how their products held up and if they used a durable clear on their CF items.

Awesome, thank you. Exactly the feedback I was looking for. What do you think of the over all quality ?

Thank you much, I'm sold !! I thought the same thing about price. I was actually surprised how reasonable things were.

So what Rexspeed parts fit on a Ralliart? All I saw on their site was EVO X and I'm worried like Vortex and what not will not fit cause of the wider body and what not.

just look through my build thread, everything cf in there is Rexpeed except for the engine cover. It is all listed under Evo X but most of it fits the Ralliart except for parts like front lips, side skirts, rear diffusers, vortex generators things like that. As for the quality it is so so....some things didnt fit so great like the hood vents and scoop and the gauge cluster cover is fading super badly and these things have only been on since June of this year.

the fog deletes and vortex do not fit, nor does the front lips either if that is what you are referring to
