Is it me or is there nothing uglier than a ricer with a carbon fiber hood? They are totally mismatched. I asked a ricer once why they dont just paint it to match, "WELL GUY, CUZ THEN TEH A HOOD WILLNT BE AZZ LIT3!" How much heavier would paint make the fuckin hood <----real question, im actually curious.

I would watch whom in that group you called a ricer on the road The only ones with CF hoods are both FWD/Turbo models with a little muscle under the hood. As for painting them, it seems like prep/paint cost would exceed that of the hood itself, so why bother?


BMWL2: There are a few RS/GS models in that group, but we don't discriminate

Opinions are like assholes...we all have em.

I will be leaving mine in clear-coated CF (no paint) when I decide to fork over that much for an "appearance mod"...though mine will have functional heat exducers.

no, but do you see how it pissed me off, you didn't know anyone on this website had a big interest in the DSM community before, and it made me angry, you wrote some things that didn't sound very cool like you were bashing those cars and that just wasnt' cool.... not to me at least, but man that's just one thing I get hot tempered about, sorry i kind of attacked you personally like that, I just got overwhelmed...

when I get a cf hood on the soon to be my E30 M3, I probably will leave it unpainted if I get the gunmetal grey model I'm looking for. Otherwise I'll paint it. And unless you have a lightweight aluminum hood already, a cf hood allows you to drop a good 10 pounds of fat...

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
