Fellas,

After being extremely unimpressed by the quality of the RW carbon and then bimmerworld aluminum replica GTS hoods I started talking to a company in Taiwan that made a custom pre-preg (dry) V-stitch carbon hood for my buddies 488.

I had two hoods made which should be shipping this week; it's been a long process but I'm hoping they are landed and in Calgary within 30-45 days.

What sets this hood apart is the fact it is true dry carbon and a v-stitch design/ carbon layup.

If you are interested in the second hood please fire me a PM. I am not a vendor, but my friend who was interested in the hood just traded his M in on a P-car.

I'm not looking to make money, just cover my costs. Pricing will be similar to RW carbon but much better quality

If it fits well I'll chat with them about a trunk

Update: hoods are scheduled to land in Vancouver on July 12th. Will start looking at logistics to Calgary.

Currently 5 people interested in the hood.

I will test fit upon landing and put up pictures.

Hoods have arrived.

I'm rather impressed with the quality and have installed one of the hoods. It is going in next week for professional fitment as I don't have the patience.

Please DM if interested, local gets priority but will consider shipping.

Picture added.

That's me slapping the hood on without any adjustment.

As stated it goes in for paint and professional install on the 28/29th at Maranello here in Calgary.
