    Why you should not buy knock-off aerocatch (I purchased mine on Amazon). NASA Mid-Atlantic race at VIR on 25/Mar. Thunder group, GTS3 class.

    So I'm thinking about buying a GTR-style hood for my 04 m3, however the problem is that all the ones I see online are either carbon or a different color than my m3 (laguna seca blue). Should I buy the hood and get it painted or not buy it at all?
