    ANYONE HERE HAVE A CARBON FIBER HOOD AND OR TRUNK LID? I LOVE THE LOOK, BUT HOW MUCH LIGHTER ARE THESE PARTS? I DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE A RICER, BUT IF THE TRUNK LID IS LIGHTER AND LOOKS GOOD WITH MY BLACK CAR... :rockyou: I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF FIBERGLASS STUFF...
    THANKS!!

    Cap Lock? you at work?

    The trunk is pretty light alreay so you won't save much weight there...i've seen CF hoods and they do look good on black cars but i wouldn't get one just because of the association with being a ricer. Those damn Ricers ruined everything :)

    I think you can pull it off and not look ricey since your car is black and you don't have a big aluminum wing. What style hood are you thinking about?

    I know this thread is old but I saw a carbon fiber trunk lid. It was 50 lbs. GEeez. I can't imagine how much the regular weighs.
