It doesnt matter what color CF you get, just have your shop do one light coat of paint so that the color matches but you still see the CF weave :thumbup:

Doesn't matter because it should be painted.

Silver CF hood, but let the weave show thru, that'd be pimp.:thumbup:

I like how the black CF weave creates a contrast on light colored cars, ACS lips come into mind. However, a black cf hood creates too big of a contrast, stands out too much imo.

Sorry to hijack this thread

I've seen alot of talk about CF hoods recently. Can anyone please tell me what are the benefits (other than looks) to having one, requirements, costs and dangers?

Some schmuck dented the front of my hood (top part of the grills) and is needing $600 in repairs to get it looking normal again. So I thought I would explore my options.

Thanks!
:)

I think the main reason to own a CF hood is to shave off weight.

Danger may include incorrect installation, and hood flying off the car at high speeds. (I think that's why most CF hooded cars have those securing pins.)
