Did you notice the difference between OEM hood and the CF one in term of weight ?
Thanks man! There is a pretty good savings in weight. I did not weigh it but I would guess the stocker to weigh about 30-35lbs and the carbon one to weigh in around 15-20lbs

edit: what front lip is that and does it match the hood perfectly?
Thank you, I appreciate the feedback.
I installed both the hood and pins myself. You will most likely need someone to help lift the old one off and new one on though.
They look and function great. Install was a bit of a !@#$ but it was well worth it. If your not comfortable with cutting on your new hood you might want to have someone install them for you.
I used this SLEK knockoff lip.
My friend went with the SLEK and they are almost identical.
