im not gonna go into details, but if you are planning on cheaping out on the hood, you will regret for the money/time/effort you would spend on the car.
-The hood will have two washer squirt holes already drilled but not proper fit which you will be required to redrill it and silicone glue the squirts.
-The hood will not be a bolt on, it *may* look like all the required holes are there but when its time to actually try on, not thing I mean nothing will fit. Another hour job of redrilling all the holes.
-The clear coat no the hood is very shitty like you will be asking WTF? some half assed cleatcoat job(the cf itself will be pretty good though)
-the actuall size of the hood is lil smaller then oem so that when you try to align it, it will not line up. you will be left with one side gab bigger then other side.
- and you will be needing a pair of hood pins as it is not very i mean scary to move around without it.
and now for my car, mine was repainted to atlas grey metalic.
(if any maxbimmer is looking to get the bodywork/repaint done let me know, I could hook you up with myguy for good deal)
