i think carbon fiber only on white or silver, black i dont like it that much cuz its not that easy to see, plus its only cosmetic. the oh its lighter then oem doesn't really mean much cuz its not like ur looking for that extra .1 sec off ur 1/4 mile.

Carbon fiber hood, fenders, trunk lid, doors might cut off 0.1 seconds Or you could just buy a nitrous kit for the 1/4 the price of all that and cut close to a full 1 second off.

Buy the way, I also don't like Carbon fiber because I have seen way to many that don't fit well and they just look bad.

ok i got another question then. I was leaning towards gettin a hood i guess fiberglass but ic ant find the ones i want in fiberglass or metal so i have no idea and i dont want to buy scoops and a stock hood because i dont have proper tools. but does anyone know where i can get one? i mean im looking for a unique hood. For example i like the carbon fiber M-Style but i wiht they had it in just another material thanks!
