Has anybody come across a cowl induction hood for a 92 325i? I am a fan of cowl hoods and am looking to find one for my car. I would like to find one about 2 inches tall possibly 3 but anything over 3 is just too much.

here is a rough photoshopped carbon fiber cowl induction hood. I think it looks pretty good.

It reminds me of a tricked out foxbodied Mustang. They look pretty good.
