Back lower carbon fiber trim too expensive

Asked honda here in Sweden and the back carbon fiber look trim cost about 400 Pounds alone - and its just a addon to the original rear. Ouch.

I really hope someone makes a replica (just matte black is ok) as this is outrageus price for a clip on plastic piece.

Ordered a oem sports lip directly from toyota for my Avensis and it only cost half of that!

That Honda addition looks horrible and an obvious 'bolt on'.

I do think there should be a rubber protection strip, possibly colour coded, so if you do have a 'touch' then it could be easily and cheaply replaced.

The vinyl on the back looks pretty good.
Would be able to do it myself (Have some matte black vinyl around) but I'm wondering if the shape of that part will be too hard for me to do myself (I see they needed to make a few shortcuts aswell).

I have ordered something funny for the front and sides and will post when it arrives and I've fastened it.
Either it will look great or tacky - we shall see.
