I like it much better flatted out.
I was fortunate (?) that some idiot backed into my bike while it was parked, only scraping the front fender, so his insurance company bought me a carbon fiber front fender for my white 06. I reaaaally wanted to do this anyways, but I hate spending money for cosmetic changes when suspension work and the Next Big Service are looming. I don't have a pixie hat, but if I did, I would want it in CF to match the fender, or at least matte black.
insert clever saying here...
