Chrome or Carbon Fiber

OK, I'm about to blow some cash in the interior before I start on performance. Getting my new stereo system for X-Mas. So, I wanna get my interior some what different.

I already have the Matrix "Ricer" Black and Blue Pedal Covers, Neo-Blue 10" Tubes under the dash, and custom embrodiered "Running Pony" floor mats I'm all gonna put in when I get the chance.

But, I wanna add a little more. I want a new shift knob and other stuff. I already know I'm gonna install a new e-brake boot. All that crap getting back there is annoying me.

But, I have a question. When you look in a car at a car show, do you prefer to see chrome or carbon fiber? I'm not gonna add the carbon fiber overlay kit or aluminum overlay kit. Not a fan of the stick-on stuff.

So, any opinions?

--EDIT--
Oh, I have a black and grey interior. Here a shot I took when I first got my car.

OK, carbon fiber it is. So, anyone seen any stuff made like carbon fiber. Like A/C knobs, headlight knob, little stuff like that. I know I've seen someone with Carbon Fiber A/C knobs.

And, as far as the shift knob goes, Momo style http://store.cal-mustang.com/cm_able...TID=20&CM_SA=0 or pistol grip style http://store.cal-mustang.com/cm_able...TID=20&CM_SA=0?

Already know I want the Carbon Fiber E-Brake Handle and shift boot. http://store.cal-mustang.com/cm_able...TID=20&CM_SA=0

And the instrument panel overlay. http://store.cal-mustang.com/cm_able...TID=20&CM_SA=0

Oh, and does anyone know if this steering wheel cover just covers the top or all of it? http://store.cal-mustang.com/cm_able...TID=20&CM_SA=0[/url]

What about brushed aluminum? I personally think that'll look good. Chrome is too shinny, but brushed aluminum gives a nice hi-tech look to things.

Hmm...I also thought about two-toning the rest of the interior. You know, continue on with the black off the dash.

Mine has been on my car for over a yr and hasnt tried to peel off once, I mean the whole back side of the carbon fiber dash kit cover has a very good 3M sealant, so it sticks rather well, you would be very pleased I believe.

But a quick question, are your windows tinted? If so, how much?
