Hood selection for 05+

Seems like the 00-04 models have a lot more selections for aftermarket hoods than we do.

I have hood choices narrowed down to two:

Option 1:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-2007-Fo...ht_6024wt_1037

Pros - looks different - quality has good feedback
Cons - only comes in black carbon fiber, not sure if I trust that many vents with water.

Option 2: the good ol invader hood here: http://www.deftracing.com/carbon_fib...cus_vented.htm

Pros- semi functional. It should help keep my weapon R intake manifold a little cooler....in theory. Water would only drain over the intake manifold. Comes in a royal blue color which is a little closer match to my car.
Cons- says it is made from a fiberglass frame, but hood is carbon fiber. I dont know if that is the norm. Unknown quality.

Any opinions or info would be appreciated. This would be going on a Sonic Blue Saleen Focus.
