The fitment isn't as perfect as an OEM hood, but you won't get perfect OEM fitment from any CF hood in my opinion. Carbon parts always take a little bit of tweaking to get to fit right, but the body shop that installed the hood both times was surprised at how easy it was to fit on.They said they have had MUCH worse quality hoods in terms of both fit and finish put on various cars.

Here are a couple pics showing that the gap between the hood and the body of the car isn't too too bad, and how it lines up more or less correctly:

Not perfect.. but not like the claims of "horrible" fit that I have also heard in the past. Both hoods fit the exact same.
