I've been debating getting a carbon fiber hood for my car. I think i want to get one, so i have narrowed it down to two selections.

I was looking at either the oem one or the mugen style one. I want to know everyone's opinions on these two hoods. Also since it doesn't show it on the car do you guys think that mugen style hood will look ricey on an 06 si b/c the hood is so short? Thanks for any opinions!

one of the SEMA Si's had the Mugen hood and I was set to buy it until I saw it on the car. I didn't like it for some reason. Lemme see if I can find the picture. I think the vents on it were really tiny looking or something.

i wouldn't mind the carbon fibre trunk.. but its not that heavy (stock) for the price they are asking for. If it was under 150 bucks I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I've heard really really really bad things about Seibon's customer service. I'm trying to see what else is available. But if anyone gets it good luck with the product and product support.

Nice whip el_ben. I remember you saying you were going to get the CF hood and trunk and it looks really good on black.

el ben what screws did you use to install???
The stock ones or the ones that came with the cf hood that held the wood in place(for shipping)??
also did you have to remove any of the engine bays rubber stopers?
My hood wouldnt close till i took the left side one off..

How much lighter is the trunk and hood? how was the fitment? pretty close to stock? with little to no gaps or what? thanks :thumb: i dont dig that hood that much though kinda (rice) but i do like the carbon fiber oem style one but worried about gaps.
