Fake or cosmetic carbon is pretty easy to spot if you know what you are looking for. In sunlight real carbon fibre has a kind of depth to it, you can see into the structure. This is not the case with cosmetic carbon.

In general BTP made good products many years ago, but with today´s standards they arent that good.
I have repaired too many BTP stuff to be impressed.
