Not my favorite design, but its a step in the right direction I suppose. Hood scoops FTL though.

I dig the carbon on blue look, but, maybe his car isn't aggressive enough for the hood just yet??

We were thinking of putting a set of black /polished wheels on it to see if it will blend better......

Well if I use it, I'm of course not keeping everything the way it is. Changes will be made. The only question is what. I do have a few ideas.

Looks good, but the giant scoop is a bit too much.. The way it goes down the hood and meets up wtih the crosshairs on the stock front bumper isn't that appealing. Is that hood scoop functional?

Put it this way, get an aftermarket front end and some black housing headlamps and it will look 100 times better. Its a great piece going on a great car, but its too "showy" in my eyes. Get a body kit and it will look hawt.

I think you have something there with the black & polished lip idea for some wheels. Maybe he needs a different spoiler, too. But the lip kit already on there seems to give it the body-agressive look IMO. I like this hood on this car. I can't say what I might think about it on another car.

Maybe tint it blue so you can see the CF underneath. I've seen this done on a dark blue Integra and it looks real slick. Leave the scoop natural.

I'm torn between 2 and 4! If you're going with more CF stuff, I say 2. If not, I say 4!
5:CF trim around edges of hood and scoop, with CF in middle of scoop

Ok that just looks ghetto. Like the CF equivalent to chrome stripping on all the seams of a car.

I say 4.
