For the price you paid, I would get a quick dis-connect steering wheel (forget the airbag), order a body kit, get a carbon fiber hood, fix the windshield, drop it on some DF210's or Tein's and get a set of wide a$$ wheels...You would still be under $10K...

Only said that because he said it needed a new hood, but I do agree with ya...Coilovers over springs if I had the cash...

if you like one of the vented styles, sure, if youre gonna paint an oem cf hood body color theres no point not to just get a factory hood though.

i dont know, our hood is way too small for there to be any kind of noticeable weight savings from a carbon fiber variant, then theres getting all the mounting correct plus the added flimsiness and reduced durability of fiberglass/CF vs OEM

I'd only do it to get a pretty vented one or if my car was white for the panda look or black for the OEM+ look
