well i dunno, i may be buying a CF hood in the near future, but i would not personally paint it. im buying it for the look , the weight loss is second to the look IMO.
also id like to see some pics. lots of people frown apon neon on a BMW but id like to see the pics before i judge.
i am just adding a bomex body kit and am goin to have it painted was thinkin a bout getting red neons but i am not shure now probbly goin to go all black or red with carbon fiber hood maybe add a wing not shure though what do u guys think
Seems to be a big misconception these days with some people, big wing doesn't make it look fast, it makes it look gay (personal opinion). There is next to nothing driven on the streets today that requires any of the wings I see on these hondas in my city. A nice M spoiler would make it look powerful.

i can second that
Yes i love the look of the stock M spolier. If I have the money after suspension upgrades I want to get one, just because I like a small spolier and the M one is subtle and yet looks meaningful all at once.
To answer your question (kinda forgot to do that the first time) if you want your car to look "fast" *cough* rice *cough* then don't paint the hood. But IMO for most cars it looks pretty gay. Some cars pull it off nicely. However, if your painting the hood then no one will believe that it is carbon fiber... tuff decision you face.
