Probably a stick-on plastic made for car modding.

You can get real carbon fiber sheets with adhesive on one side from places like DemonTweeks (they sell bike, car and motosport parts) Get the real thing as carbon look stuff always looks terrible.

Yes they do make carbon fiber look vinyl with a sticky back. It has the look but is a cheaper alternative to real carbon fiber which can be expensive. I have some in the Sign shop I work at. It runs $13.99 a yard for a a 15" wide roll. Just to give you an idea on price. Also comes in white and clear.

I looked more into that, and i saw that they are just clip ons, if your look carfully on the bezel of your screen at the top and the bottom where the hinge is, you can see grooves. Those are for the clip on plates that dell sells. the one on that site i pointed out is $50 at dell, the stucky material sounds nice but i'm not sure how steady my hand is now to be applying that to my laptop. I have a i9300 too and it looks cool. dlh75, can u provide us with more information in where we can buy that stuff? if not at your shop anywhere else. thanks.i9300, lovin it!

dell sells the snapon covers for all dell models in carbon fiber and many other colors...its and accessory that dell sells and won't void you warranty...you don't need to take apart anything like in the pictures unless you want to do that light up logo modHey who turned sigs on?
