Do NOT cheap out on a CF hood, you'll just throw your money away. VIS by far is the best in the 'reasonably' priced range.

I've wondered how much weight u lose by a carbon fiber hood...... That would be the only reason i would get one yeah they look "good" but the stock hood looks just as nice imo. Anyways like i said i wonder how much leighter they actually are, because stock hoods aren't light but then again they aren't that heavy usually.

Have you checked out the VIS Invader hood? It doesn't look too bad.

VIS is by far the best manufacture on CF hoods
