used If you think it is wasting your money and only are doing it for Aesthetic purposes then no. But if you are planning on using the reduced weight then yes. It is a good mod and saves tons of weight. Or you could just put the stickers stuff that looks like it on your hood and hope it doesn't peel in the summer time...

You should just buy a civic or an integra if you want a CF hood.

Seems like you answered your own question lol

BTW, if you aren't looking for the highest quality CF hood, you can actually find a CF hood cheaper than an OEM hood, plus you don't have to paint it. I got mine for a steal. $400CDN

His car is black. The cold one belongs to livinfast. I'd say get the CF hood because it can still be pulled off nicely on your car. Will you ever use your car at a track? Will you choose to made weight reduction a large portion in increasing your cars performance? Look for a decent CF hood (not too fancy) and enjoy. You'll enjoy the CF no matter what you use it for.

Pleas go educate yourself. Carbon fiber... found in cars like the Enzo save weight. Which means these cars get better Power to weight ratios than if they used typical metal hoods. Now is this so stupid?
