yes its the DG hood...

no i didnt get to do a comparison.... i think the CF hood is like 15 pounds or something
Sounds like you got it for cosmetic reasons?
I'm sure many of us are interested if it is actually lighter, so if you can get a chance to weigh both the stock and cf one, I would appreciate it.

never tried jumping on my hood.... really doesnt sound too realistic.....

i mean... for show.... and to get oooohs from everyone i see why you would want to do that.....

but honestly.... would you jump on your brand new hood just to "see" if it will hold up....... i mean.... what happens if it does crack.....

"Hey guys... i want a new hood cuz yours cracked"
"how did it crack?"
"I jumped on it"

sound kinda off the wall doesnt it

im fine.... DG warrants all there hoods so I'll be straight.....

the hood is significantly lighter than the stock.... it might be 2 or 3 times lighter......

was just in a rush... forgot about weight.... but it surely a significant weight loss

Are these carbon fibre hoods body-coloured? If not, are you guys painting them? Also, what is the motivation behind getting a CF hood - looks, weight etc?

The CF hoods are left in the natural black color for the most part. Sometimes you can have a colored weave put in. They clear coat the hood so that it has a smooth shiny finish.

As for why people do it....it varies. The hoods are lighter than the stock units, which is good. They can look neat, but I think it is just another thing to spend money on. :D

Yeah, thats what I thought. I have the pearl white (Arctic? Cloud white? What the hell is the name of that colour??) and a black CF hood just wouldn't work with a lighter colour. Would look cool on the dark green or black though.
