So I guess that means there's a CFTP again, along with a CFHP[?] The latter being carbon wheels (that may be painted on that flavor), but the standard/non-CFTP wing.

Bonus content: My lugs were loose, and since I didn't want to lose one, and look like a loser, I tightened them extra snug, so they wouldn't loosen again.

does everyone agree the wheels and wing are black? This is significant if they are.
I remember reading somewhere that they were switching to the painted black for CFTP going forward. To many issues with scratches and minor imperfections that are not structural integrity problems to the carbon fiber. I will try to find the article with the memo coming from Ford.

Man, in that pic they look painted black.

It looks black to me. Black would look better anyway. Exposed CF wouldn't look good.

But I must disagree, painted black would be pretty "ho hum" in my opinion and no question that the exposed CF wheels are much bigger eye catchers.

I love that color combination, just the right amount of yellow highlighted by the gloss black.
