PROS:
1) The top is GORGEOUSITY!
2) All parts are perfect. I haven't installed it yet, but I'll
edit this when that happens.
3) The top itself looks and feels sturdier than OEM. Feels slightly lighter.
CONS:
1) The kit includes interior CF replacements, something
I'm not into. I wish they'd offer just the shell, at a
cheaper cost, but these are perfect, too, so if you're
really INTO CF, it might "work" for you.
2) Cost, but it's kind of a "specialty" item, so I can
understand why VIS charges so much.
3) Vis could've made the bottom of the top like OEM and made the install a lot easier/seemless.
4) Seems like it sits a hair, (milimeters), higher than stock, but this could be my imagination.
I'll update with pics when I get it installed.

UPDATED PICS ON THE THIRD PAGE OF THE LINK.
Vis carbon fiber trunk, (pics in link):
PROS:
1) Same beautiful craftsmanship/sturdiness/attention
to detail.
2) It looks like the weave pattern's the same as the top,
(forward to the left), but I can't really tell, since looking
at it from different angles makes it look...different? :ninja
3) The skeleton looks more OEM then the top's, so the
installation might be less painless.
CONS:
1) Cost less than the top :eek2, but still expensive. You
get quality, though.
2) It's got minor flaws, and with such a big, flat surface,
they "stick out" a lot more. But, unless you gaze at
every inch, (like I did), they're not too noticable.
Vis definately pays attention to the underside, though.
Both pieces I bought, (top, trunk), are BETTER than OEM
in that area, IMO. Especially the top.
