How Bad are VIS hoods fitment? they came out with a vented version that looks pretty tasteful, almost like DMaks hood.

Not bad. I think Dmak had a custom metal hood though. I could be wrong though

My old hood was a VIS and it fit pretty good. If you want a vented hood go with a Vorsteiner or Fiber Images. Those are both good looking

Dmak made his own hood from the stock hood... there was a thread somewhere back in the day online that showed the steps he took to do it.

Doesn't look to bad. I cant get VIS hoods but I can get hoods from Fiber Images and Vorsteiner.

IMHO if it was painted i think it would look a little better. Its not as bad as some hoods i have seen.


got a link on this hood ?

I thought it was a pretty subtle way to vent a hood. and I know a lot of people like Dmaks hood (including me) the vents go into the hood and there is no large air scoops or any thing like that. they are kind of large i guess, if they were smaller like the new vorsteiner B7 hood it would be nice i think.

I am trying to get Fiber Images to design a hood that will have the same type of vents as the Carbon24 hood for the B7.

I hope to have it look like this but all CF and hope to have it retail around 1000-1100.

wow. thats a sick hood.
OT i like how english people call them bonnets. and in this other post, someone said "use a torch to look into the engine bay" or something. i laughed imagining someone actually using a torch. [cool]
