The hood is great. I did have to lower the factory latch when I first got it so it would pull the hood down more secure but other then that its been golden.

Again with the busted ass rims, black does NOT match with Red, when are people going to understand that! And secondly why on Earth would you put that ugly ass carbon fiber hood on such a beautiful car, the only color carbon fiber hoods look good on is black!

1. How can you call anything made by Rays busted?
2. Black doesn't match? Black matches everything. Period!
3. I personally hate CF on a black car. It makes the CF not even look black. CF only looks good on cars of color, not black.

Larryd, what's the weight on those good looking rims? I saw them in silver 19"s last week on an Accord and I was impressed with the build quality.

+1 for Toxis.


Except for 1 leeeetle thing. There is a black WRX by me with some CF on it. That car is so bad I love it. It makes me shiver.

:pat:
if black doesnt match with red.. why is the entire Si interior black and red?

why is it offered in Ralley Red and Habenero Red? Why is the lower front grille black? why are the gauges backlit with....red?

its all a matter of opinion. And with Toxis, black matches ANY color. Literally.

Yeah, a lot of people like it. I personally haven't seen one I like yet. From Civics, to WRX's, to NSX's to Porsche's... the CF doesn't look good on a car with a quality black paint job. It almost takes away from the richness of the black paint. I do love me some CF on cars of color though! If I still had my integra from my post above, I would be ordering a CF hood soon. lol

Yep. Me too. I want an OEM CF hood. Someone (ahem...on this thread) will probably say, "your kit sucks. You should've gone with Fiberglass Invader kit and 22" chrome wheels, with a vented hood" but ohwell, it's my ride dammit.

I'm honestly not sure however I can tell you they feel a hell of alot lighter then the stockers from pulling them off and putting these on.

Yea.. we had them on our Celica before we sold it. The car is dropped with Eibach Sportlines.
