This is a good thing anyway you look at it. While the current cost of CF is very high, basic priciples of economics will tell us that as production increases and CF become more easily accessible, the price at cost will significantly drop. As stated, oil is a finte object and will most likely be non-existant within the next century or 2. Regarding repairs, I dont see it being used immediately in chasis/frame development but more along the lines of external bodywork and posibly mechanical components. Also given the fact that it's much stronger than anything currently being used in the mass manufacturing of cars, frame damage may not be as common as may thing. F1 uses it all the time in their production process (im pretty sure) all the way down to the chasis.... Any other thoughts?
