black on white always looks good. :TU:
MyblkVTEC -> It seems like you've got gobs of money to spend so it's your choice, but you could go to AceHardware in the fastener section and get some black, little flat rubber plugs and just pop them in the holes in your trunk. They'll keep the water out too. Since your car is black you really wouldn't notice them and it'd be less than $3.
Something like this:

where are you getting it from - I haven't been able to find them on any sites after one went down... I always wanted both hood and trunk on my white coupe - but on your black one it'll be nice! :TU:

Once I paint my car I am going to start saving for a Carbon Fiber trunk and hood.

CF trunks looks sweet. There's a guy on H-T by the name of Bryan F (a.k.a. EGStreetHtch) who has the VIS CF tailgate on his EG hatch and it looks nice (see pic below of his car). I talked to him through email to ask about them. He told me his hood, wing and lip are all VIS units and he is quite happy with them and the fitment is good.

No way man it would look good. See \/ \/ \/ \/





IMO I think the CF parts on a white Civic (**EDIT** make that ANY Civic) look good. The only parts I would shy away from are the CF fenders. I just can't justify spending that kind of money for such a small loss of weight since the OEM fenders don't weigh all that much to begin with.

cf hoods and trunks are what make the "others" (by that i mean non civic owners) call us all ricers. black on a civic is undoubtedly one of the absolute cleanest colors you could possibly have. i bet your car looks super clean now... and since it is black, i bet the grommets mentioned by icarusdown would hardly be noticeable. i guess i just dont like cf in that large of a spot. i mean, on the dash... ok, it looks nice. but the entire trunk? it will just look like you got in an accident. just my $.02, black is a very clean color for a civic.
