Advice on Vorsteiner Vented Hood?

3060 Views 8 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  CBarton
I have been looking into the Vorsteiner hood. I know it comes in three versions:

- DVWP & Carbon Fiber Vents (dry vacuum woven plastic)
- Single Sided Carbon Fiber & Carbon Fiber Vents (carbon fiber honey comb matrix)
- Double Sided Carbon Fiber & Carbon Fiber Vents (carbon fiber honey comb matrix)

Anyone have any advice on the pros/cons of them? Also haven't decided if I like the carbon fiber look against Interlagos Blue. Anyone paint the vents the same color as the vehicle? Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

I got Single sided CF hood...Im painting both sides of the hood white but keeping the air vents CF and emblem inside the hood black... I got a great price so I went with the single sided rather than double sided CF.

$1500 bucks :) (Let me know if you need one as my cousin's shop has an account directly with Vorsteiner)




Pics of it at bodyshop prior to paint.... notice the bulge in the middle, thats what gives it that aggressive look from the front...

I agree, that's what makes the new M3's hood stand out. BD 997, when will your hood be completed? Those with the double sided carbon, did you paint the underside or leave the carbon exposed?
Tomorrow I hope... its been in the shop for two weeks!! I'm dying...:1zhelp:
