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.

also what colour is your car?

LOL

my friend has a cf hood on his 92 e36. jet black car, racing dynamics xhaust lowered Hm2 rims. m3 bumper. the works

well wat he did was pain the outer 2/3 of the cf hood so just the middle portion of the hood is CF looking. it looks pretty good because teh cf is not amazingly visible from far away.

yep, and nothing says fast like neons.

And wings are stupid. Period. A small spoiler can be done no problem, but leave the wings to real race cars.

I would leave the hood unpainted. As for neons I had some when I was younger but they kept blowing up so I didnt think they were woth the hassle.

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.

GOOD reply

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.
