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.

First question will be, are you going to paint the hood or not. If you are, all 3 are choices. If not, then either CF is fine. If you don't paint it, then you may need to do something on the back (bootlid) to balance the CF look, IMHO. This is more of an issue on the M6 with CF roof where it would just look odd.

So, the highest quality isthe DL CF and is the lightest. On a car like ours, why the hell would you not do the best... problem is its pricey, but again, look at the car you are driving. I just bought the hood for my M6--should be here on Monday. I have a buddy who bought the DVWP (compressed plastic) and it looks good with CF vents, but when its opened you don't really get the same effect of the DL. The Vorsteiner product is good, you just need a good body shop to ensure proper fitment. If cost is the issue, do the SS CF hood.
