    Carbon fibre looks cool on the right colour car and it would definitely suit yours

    The only drawback with carbon fibre is that you get what you pay for. I used to work in an import centre and carbon fibre bonnets were the rage on the EVO's etc.Out of all the ones I saw (A lot) I only ever saw one that appeared to fit correctly. All the others had terrible warps in them where the bonnet meets the wings and we're talking differences exceeding 5mm which I believe is diabolical

    You have a nice car, it would be such a shame to throw money at a carbon fibre bonnet only to find that it does not fit to your satisfaction.

    If it was a track car then I'd say go for it as they are far lighter which is more important than the car looking perfect
