I like the look of the carbon back plates, but it seems that they are fake carbon, they are usually plastic with a vinyl sticker that looks like carbon.:roll eyes: with this disappointment discovered before ordering, I am thinking to just get a different color set and replace the battery whilst I'm at it. I also kinda like the idea of the gold metal band, although it is probably pretty tacky looking in real life... Carbon and gold! lol!!! I'm lame!
