Need Advice

Hey there guys well my car goes into the shop on monday to get painted champion white. My question is I have an oem style CF hood and I was wondering should I keep it black or should I have it painted over white to match the car. All your help would be greatly appreciated thanks!!!!!!

Well if i were you, I'll paint it white so it doesnt look unmatched but thats my opinion. Some will say keep it and buy a cf trunk and paint the top black. I think it will look a lot cleaner all white. But that's my opinion, hope it helped.

^Yeah it can be a tough decision, because you can go both ways... I'd say leave your CF Hood and just have them paint your OEM Hood.

Well, since you have an EX, and you can paint the other parts, I would suggest you paint the hood too. Or do some kinda cool effect where you could see the paint but it slowly fades into a CF hood, but since that would take more money and effort, just paint it.

paint the hood.I think it looks retarded with the carbon hood and trunk.Looks like you are a few dollars short on a full paint job.

Please paint it. I cant stand the carbon look when its just that ONE piece on the front or back of the car.
