Composite = Fiberglass

You've been promising this all year. Feb 1 was the first quoted release date, and this is 7 months and 13 days later without so much as a real (not photoshop) picture. People say they want c/f, but you intend on making fiberglass (not the best hood material) and then *maybe* offering c/f further down the line. That doesn't even take into account the fact that these hoods won't even get started until you finish selling the rest of your headlights...

Instead of stringing people along, why not just wait until you actually have a product that is available for sale? The Advan hood has been out for a year now, at prices over 20% less than your fiberglass quotes, and no one has purchased it. Don't let this turn into the same mentality that is present on the ST forums.

dyn085 That pretty much covers it. They have a vented hood as well but I can't find a picture that I can post here for some reason.
