i like the c/f cuz it adds character to the car...but then again the first hood goes with the car better!

i'd say put the painted hood back on...OR u cud paint the c/f hood...or like this guy did from Versatile Racing Development..he has the green civic coupe from the show...he has the c/f a shade of green..which matches his car

Keep the CF ... but paint it partially ... paint the outside following a line from where the eyelids start and leave the centre part CF. or vice versa. Or is that Rice?

well now anything along those lines...ppl even say jeremy and randy's car are riced up bmw's! some people's opinions of a nicely modded car is just rims, and lowered and its nicely done up to them...they see clear corners and wings and it goes into the rice zone. they shud have a book..which tells you wats rice or not hahaha :D

I like it on, but then again i'm sort of a fan of the whole carbon fiber hood look.
If you keep it on, or for future shows, i recommend making the bmw roundel black and white instead of blue and white with the cf hood.

just spray a red tint to it or paint it, still get the points for being a lightweight hood just colored now

Honestly,if you are gonna be showing it,then leave it.If you bought it just to save weight and don't like the CF look,then paint it.

This is only my opinion...

I love the look of carbon fiber hoods, but it's got to be on a car that suits it... and Jeremy, I don't think yours does (or mine for that matter). I think it'll look good on a darker colored car (maybe silver).... carbon black would look awsome!

The only other exception on a red car would be a very functional light weight version of your car (no skirts, big brakes, black 16" wheels, roll cage, lexan windows... you know, hard-core type).

Sell it to Straight_6... I know he'd take it off you.

WTF!!! Who would say Randys car IS RICED UP!!! Thats one of the cleanest looking BMW's arround!!! Everything on that car matches and flows well....I dont think I have seen a most striking yet conservative E30 anywhere....

I heard the same comments aswell Filip (doesn't bother me).... I think it's the aggressive front bumper that really does it. Most BMW's stereotypically have a more business oriented color combo too (lots of silvers, dark blues, black, dark reds) so when people see one that has a brighter "in your face" color, they think RICE.... and the white wheels don't help either.

Hrm, The car looks much cleaner w/o it, but it looks much more agressive with it. I think the C/F suits the car, I would leave it.

Also I've seen the painted carbon fiber, maybe you can do that? tint it orange?

i like,well actualy LOVE the carbon fiber look as well as its function. although on the other hand i understand what everyone is saying regarding the color contrast. as far as it not fitting into the bmw persona (which is probaly so far off to begin with), screw that...i dont follow trends i set them...ha ha...:P ....i'll leave it at this, if someone is interested and gives me a good enough offer i will sell it (i could use the money for the sparco seats) if not i'll keep it..i dont think it looks that bad considering that my car is all red and black....i think i like it better, but cant decide...:rolleyes: what to do, what to do:(

No offense Jeremy, but that "Hood" completely ruins the look of your car. It looks MUCH, MUCH better with the original hood On.

***Most "average" people who see these cars with different color body panels, think that you had some kind of an accident, bought a used one from a junk yard, and had NO MONEY to paint it the proper color. I find those hoods extremely "tacky" looking.

PAINT IT, or off.

Randy I don't think that carbon fiber hood will look good on the silver car. I think it would look better on your car than on Dave's car.

too much weed for u...i dont think it wud suite either cars...i think a c/f hood will look amazing on saj328's car since he already has black and silver theme on the car! but his isnt an e30...i think it looks sick on jeremy..but like me and gamite posted, that tinted c/f hood looks SICK

I agree it wouldn't look good on Randy's car.
I said it would look better on blue than on silver.

I say keep the hood but get wheels that match it. That would look hot.

keep it and have it respray w/ clear lacquer same color as your car
I think if keep it black the offset is too much for your car color
