Go with invader! The stock one to girls, looks like just an unpainted hood. The Invader has some character to it. However, the OEM dos look nice, to me!

my vis invader cracked....Now I'm screwed.
I haven't even had it 6 months yet. wish i could get it fixed.....
Just get a fiberglass hood man. Atleast those CAN be fixed.
If your CF hood cracks your F'd. Unless you know some way to fix a gel coat...then I'd like to know it.
