Alright, Gents, these items were from my E39,

1. 6-Disc CD Changer w/ Cartridge $200.00
2. OEM Front & Rear Brake Calipers and Rotors (~35,000 miles) $500.00
3. Carbon Fiber Hood (Excellent fitment) $300.00

On item 3, this is the best fit CF hood I have seen and I seen quite a bit as I owned a highend Auto Body Shop a few years back. Excellent fender gap!!! The only flaw is mild condensation in the resin. This dulls the reflection in certain spot. Being a perfectionist, this really bothered me. Then the Wife' who gave me hell for having a bare CF hood on my Carbon Black M5. Highly recommended that this hood be painted. It takes a tremendous amount of weight off the frontend. cherrsagai

For clarification, the Carbon Fiber hood is not painted. :)

Note: The hood has been in storage for a long while so it's a bit dusty.

For the money I am asking you shouldn't have the expectation of a Vorsteiner's finish. For your $300, you getting a great value in an excellent fit and construction and weight saving. I've seen CF hoods that cost 4X this and didn't fit half as well. As I mentioned before, I recommend that you paint the hood, unless you're a hardcore CF lover.

I'm local and went to look at the hood on saturday, it's in very good condition, very lightweight. This guy knows a lot about carbon fiber, he had a few other pieces for a racebike laying around, so he knows his stuff.

As he described there are areas on the hood where it is a bit cloudy, but its not horrible and you'd probably paint the hood anyway and it'd be perfect. $1000-1200 dollar hood for 300 bucks is a great deal. I really wish I could afford it right now. My financial situation doesn't have a carbon fiber hood in it right now.

This is a great deal, from a stand up seller. :cheers:

Nice meeting you David. I Didn't see you at the track sunday? It was a blast.

Thanks, Chris! It was nice meeting you, too.

Mike from Vorsteiner got me good with his Hennessy at Taos on Saturday night.

Glad everyone enjoyed themselves without me on Sunday. :grrrrr:
