The advantages come in the amount of weight saved and the exotic look. Most people do it for looks. I think it looks a bit trashy unpainted, but rather could really compliment the car if you were to candy coat paint it so that it's only visible up close. The disadvantages come from fear of fading from UV rays, peeling of the clear coat, fitament (it very much could be slightly askew), and fear of it ripping open at high speeds. It hashappened on more than one occasion of people traveling 110+ mph and the hood flying open, destroying the windshield and ending up somewhere south of the boarder. Most people remedy this via hood pins, but then you start to get even trashier looking. What brand is this CF hood? The brand can say a lot about the previous owner and it's intention and use.
