Carbon fiber hood: Yes.

Scoops in hood: No

However, If you do want the scoops in the hood, stay with inset one like the one you have shown. As for painting, I'd recommend painting painting just the sides of the hood leaving the center exposed. I've always loved that look

Don't even go near that wing. If you really want a larger rear wing, go for an SAP style wing.

Leave it how it is right now. Car looks nice and very clean, don't mess it up with hood vents and tall wings.

You know what they say...big wing = short shifter.

Also, the unpainted carbon fiber only looks good for awhile before it starts to cloud up. Then it looks like a hood you were too cheap to have painted.

Thinking might do the same hood as the 05 focus F2

A vent coming down each side with black mesh under it keep the black silver theme of my ride

It all depends on how well you take care of that hood. I had my ViS Vader hood for 5 years before it started to cloud. But that was only a little bit of clouding on the outside seams. After it started to cloud, I just had the hood painted.

It looks fine IMO, but the rear bumper is throwing it off. Spend the coin on a SAP bumper or something.

Paint the washer nozzles, door handles (smooth), that will clean it up. Then maybe the mirror caps or get SVT/ST mirrors.

Dude, totally agreed 110%. That car is like mine (same color and overall look) but aside from that, it's total sex on wheels, lol.

Leave it the way it is. If you have to, go carbon fiber, but stay away from both of those wings.

I prefer the look of the SAP wing out of the three. As for the hood, I would go with an OEM style carbon fiber hood. I bought a carbon fiber hood with heat extractors on it because my car was running a little to hot and it helps expel the heat. But in the end it's your car so you do what you want to with it. It's all about what you like.
