Which carbon fiber company is the best, and how do you know which ones use real carbon fiber? I went to andys autosport and saw theses companys:

Carbon Creations
Seibon
AIT Racing
Carbon Fiber 1
C-Wings
Erebuni
Fiber Images
TC Sportline
VIS Racing


These are all carbon fiber hood comapnys but I dont want to pick a fake or poor quality company. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can only assume that they ALL use REAL carbon fiber.... I've never seen a fake carbon fiber hood...

However, there are different weaves and different Weights of Carbon Fiber. 3,000 Fiber (3K) Plain weave is the stuff that mimics the 'fake C/f vinyl' look.
It's cheaper that 2x2 (2K) twill carbon fiber, but the 2x2 has a nice staggered look because of the different weave pattern.

Almost all of the companies will use 2x2 twill, 1 or 2 sheets of it, backed with fiberglass to add strength without much additional cost.

S2 fiberglass is lightweight and almost as strong as carbon fiber.
