Deloriant's CF Hood

Hey Deloriant, I kinda remember you mentioning you ordered a CF hood, but never heard anything else about it. Did you get it installed and did the fitment have any issues? Got any pics?

Thanks.

I'm not sure yet... anyone have any pics of a CF hood on a silver e36? haha

It's a consideration.

I don't like the look unless it's on a darker color car IE black or dark blue or dark grey.. it looks out of place on that red car because everything else is so red.. if he had a CF roof, trunk, etc I could see it..

If I got a CF hood, I'd also get the uuc adjustable cf spoiler to balance it out a bit.

Harry, your car is an automatic :P CF is used for racing purposes at least that's what I thought it was for. It's lighter and reduces weight to race. I think your money would be better spent swapping a RACING transmission in ie a 5 or 6spd. In fact, there is a group buy on dtm for an evo 6spd for like 2000 for the kit. This is just my opinion and take it for what it's worth, but I think CF is becoming too tacky and used too much in cases where it's not needed. If you want visuals, start with a new bumper and rear bumper whether it be a AC or M3.

I'm not saying he needs to swap the tranny, but I would almost say it's rice to put CF on any automatic imo. Sure BMW's auto's are pretty good, but it's just not a 5spd. I just don't like the look of CF at all. Every honda and jap car I see has tons of it on there and I just don't htink it belongs on a bimmer unless it's really being used for it's main purpose which is to reduce weight and race.

I love that look on deloriant's car, I always wanted to know what carbon fiber was like on hellrot and now I know I love it. But I agree that it needs to be balanced, A carbon fiber adjustable spoiler would set it off, maybe carbon fiber mirrors, carbon fiber front bumper lip.
