And yup!!! They use it everywhere don't they? I wonder why, someone would want their toilet seat to be made of carbon fibre. LOL

I seen that in a Top Gear Video. Its used in a boat called Wally 118, it seems everything is carbon fibre. Even the toilet seat, dining table, etc. To make it light and fast and not compromising luxury.

The stock alloys on the GTX is a Magnesium-Aluminium alloy. You cant have a pure Magnesium alloy though. The word Alloy means a mixture of two or more elements. I think most of the higher end alloys like Oz and BBS have higher magnesium content in them.
