stock hood is close to 70lbs.
being that it looks like a stock M3 hood, painting it would give that subtle look, yet u just got urself a Carbon Fiber hood, let it stand out

Looks delicious. Make sure to do something about hood struts.
I think that hood on my car is slightly bulging out after being closed with original struts for over a year.
Should have drilled the suckers right away, should have...

Mine was made by NRG, bought from modbargains. Maybe I just have to play with alignment more.

NRG is just a Carbon8 distributor. They do, however, make some (supposedly) pretty badass quick release systems for steering wheels (which I should probably invest in).

But apparently not confident enough not to get bent out of shape when a jackass asks you a stupid question that you allow to get under your skin.

We've both been around enough to know better than to bicker. I'll take the blame for getting heated. It will stay unpainted btw. I am looking at a 91 VW fox this week to save the bimmer!
