How Silicon & Carbon Fiber Parts Have Changed Vehicles In Recent Years

Making the right changes in a vehicle is essential for its performance. New materials like silicone and carbon fiber have changed the car scene over the last two decades. Below are a few major ways these materials have changed vehicles in recent years. 

More Durability and Strength

Carbon fiber and silicon aftermarket parts have expanded strength and durability, allowing them to be molded into any design. If you live in an area where weather exposure tends to rust traditional materials, you will find these to be more durable options. Their strength makes them a great alternative to OEM steel parts. The only drawback to this strength is that it isn't there upon impact in a collision.


The weight of carbon fiber and silicone is significantly less than steel, so if your vehicle is lighter you can expect a faster performance. There is less weight to move, so you can get to higher speeds faster and maintain them. Also, the energy you are saving reduces the amount of gas necessary and helps with your wallet.

Opens Up Custom Options

Another benefit to choosing carbon fiber and silicone for your vehicle is the number of add-ons available. For example, you can get a custom 2015 WRX carbon fiber wing for your Subaru. This wing can change the entire appearance of your Subaru while reaping additional benefits. When you add Subaru WRX carbon fiber interior to the mix, you may be surprised by all the different customizations available to choose from and others you may request.
