Where can I find a fiberglass hood for my e30. I would like something that is not pin on and costs less than $300. So far, all I have found is Carbon fiber or the expensive ireland engineering ones. Also, does anyone know of any company making lightweight front bumpers for the non-M3 e30. thanks!

Ireland Engineering are the only ones worth it.

well since the e30 hood doesnt open from the front i doubt anyone would have a problem with it flying up unless they were racing in reverse.
In other words, you failed to think before you spoke, there are 2 main reasons people buy pin-down hoods for e30.
1. they are cheaper than hoods that use factory hinges
2. its faster when trying to hurry, two pins and the whole thing lifts off

yea, ok, send me a pic of that.
Thank you for quoting what we can read our selfs.
If i was gonna waste my money on something that isnt going to help like a hood then i would definately spend the extra 200 bucks for a CF one. Fiberglass hoods cant be too sturdy either, in order for them to be lighter then they have to be pretty thin. Dont waste your money buying a hood when you could spend that money on your motor.

Personaly I would spend the money on the engine or suspension, but if you really want a hood go for CF its much stronger and lighter.
