Hi all 

I’ve not had the car long... But I’ve seen that you can get carbon version of this par attached—  Is it a tricky job to change?

I'd imagine it's made to split to allow the airbag through if it's needed. Anything else will just be exploded into your passengers face.

The panel is held in with clips which are designed to break if the airbags go off, then the panel is attached to a metal plate (with about 100 screws) which is attached to some seatbelt material, which means if the airbag goes off, the panel won't hit you in the fact, but will go up above the airbag.

I have replaced with carbon and deactivated the air bag as I have harnesses, so I reattached the panel with velcro instead of getting new clips.
