Lots of people on this thread have gone from JB to CB, but has anyone gone CB to JB? FWIW - I love my CB.

not side by side with carbon but here are some pics of my JB after a recent detail, someone even asked me if it was carbon black because of the way the light reflects...my personal taste would be JB as long as you keep it clean!!!

the one time CB looks real good is if you have it under a light at night, the metallic color shimmers out real nice, but really, JB is sleek all the time, and gives the car an added strength to the look, fwiw resale is easier with JB than CB according to used car dealers I was consulting when i first bought my CB.

here is my CB, I will take some pics of the JB soon:



fwiw, I didn't buy either because of their colors lol. I like AW and charcoal the most, the blacks were just good deals.

funny that people are saying that one is "better" than the other...it's all personal preferences anyway
