The new carbon fiber light pods have been engineered to be direct replacement plug and play on the 595/695 series 4 fog light pod. They utilise the one of best fog lighting elements from PIAA, Japan normally exclusively used in motorsport for unrivaled illumination and durability.
Bulbs and plug and play wiring loom included.
The 2nd Generation using Dry carbon refers to the manufacturing process rather than the finish. Dry carbon is another term for pre-preg carbon (which itself is an abbreviation of the term pre-impregnated carbon fiber). For these products, the activated resin matrix has already been impregnated into the carbon fiber sheet. The sheets arrive and remain 'dry' throughout the manufacturing process - hence the name 'Dry carbon'. This is typically the best carbon on the market as its the lightest and most efficient way to make carbon, whilst also producing the strongest and most durable part. Once the carbon part is made, its then either finished in a gloss or satin lacquer - depending on the look you want. 'Exposed' carbon is usually raw carbon with a protective sealant on top.
Why is dry carbon fibre more expensive?
The price difference ultimately comes from the greater amount of time and resource it takes to make dry pre-preg carbon fiber compared to its wet alternative. Wet carbon is typically favoured by the lower end market because of its flexibility and ability to combine with other materials like fiberglass.
Each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages but understanding the differences will help you make a more informed decision about which type will suit your needs.
