I heard really good things about VIS hoods. You can also find the VIS sometimes on ebay for a decent price. I never really heard anything else about other hoods either, so if ne one knows some more good brand CF hoods let us know.

VIs came out with a new hood which is grade AA i believe, suppose to be really goood and holds on strong. Fiberimage is also good but heard that many hoods now is not as good. I think best bang for the bucks will be vis, pretty light, strong, and roll edges, etc... Kamarmi sorry for spelling, is suppose to be really nice but cost like $800............Well hope that helps in some way, lates

I got an APC hood for my EG hatch, that thing is garbage. It has gaps on each side like 3/4 inch, and the hood is raised a good half inch in the rear because it is made too thick. I would not recommend APC as a good fit.

I just had damage from a deer strike and it did 3,000 in damage so I looked at the cost on the hood and paint and blending both quarters and I figured it up and ended up getting a VIS carbon fiber hood out of the deal and had extra money I used to hit the rear quarters that had rust problems. But what you wanted to hear the hood fits perfectly and I looked very closely at the weave and it has NO imperfections. I still haven't gotten the car back from the paint shop yet it is suppose to be done by monday but I can't find any problems with it. Also the OEM hood had that overhang infamous with 4th gen. and this hood corrected that problem. It's almost too good to be true :D

Hope this helps.

Peace

:cool:
