    Anybody found this case on eBay? It is a carbon fiber snap-on case (unlike the DRO Concepts CF slide case) with the Porsche logo. They have Porsche, Ferrari, AMG and several others. Not sure what I think? Even though I am a Porsche enthusiast I am not sure how I would feel afetr a month with the logo on my phone? The AMG one looks muted and may be more tolerable long term. I will in include a pic below.

    Not sure these are endorsed by the manufacturers so if you want one I suggest you act fast!

    Not even a real logo, why would they give you real carbon fiber.

    Surprised it doesn't say Porche.

    Oh my. That case is a huge turn off for me. But I guess we all have our own style. :)

    from my understanding Carbon and RF do not mix

    Carbon fiber acts as to dissipate RF and convert it into heat. Thus using a carbon shell on a device that is meant to communicate on RF is not ideal. Stealth Jets use Carbon fiber on the entire body of the jet to become invisible, along with a few other tricks.

    I only talk about this because I also wanted a CF shell but I really can't afford any signal loss.

    lol there is no signal loss everyone keeps assuming there is but I can tell you now with my carbon fiber case its 4 layers of CF and not a bit of signal loss. You are mis-informed

    He's not.

    That in this particular case there's no clear consequent of this is an other thing, but he's right that CF and RF don't go together well...

    The problem with this case is you will look like a tool when you get into your kia to drive home.
