I actually had my revozport hood installed for a week before I installed the pins for the radiator support. I took it to 100mph and lift wAs minimal. My old voorsteiner lifted much more.

And Cooler2442 nailed it on why aluminum would be more expensive. There is a company that makes mold on power domes. You graph them on ur stock OEM hood.

I believe duke dynamics is coming out with a 1m cosmetic package in the next couple of weeks. The hood has the powerdome if thats your thing, though personally I love the revozport look and thats what Ive got!

Food for thought!
That's a great suggestion! Definitely want to avoid aerocatches if I can. Do you know if it can blend better than the image below?

If you paint them they will blend better. Before i had my pins drilled, I took my car around 100mph and had no issues with excessive lift with the revozport hood. My old vorsteiner hood used to lift a lot though.

It doesn't lift till around 170 mph (270+ km/h), that I know for sure...Dackel had the information that BMW engineers believe it can not be regarded safe after 280 km/h real speed which means only highly tuned and at the same time de-limited 1Ms should worry about the single latch of the OEM hood. At those speeds there are other issues to worry too!

At 70 mph I think this bunker style steel hood doesn't even feel the wind.

I say get the aero catch , but in the end its up to you.
Do it if you want and don't if you don't want to/don't like it, just know there is a risk.

Flush 225 series would be the way to go, and have em painted with the bonnet to match. No need for the key lockable as you will keep the main latch mech.

I've been contemplating this upgrade for the longest time.. more so than the Akropovic Exhaust or big brake upgrade. but I'm so worried about the consequences of the car not looking as OEM. Although, just as "ilikebmxbikes" had pointed out.. Revozport's hood looks like what the 1M should have came with from the factory.

What do you guys think?

This hood looks and feels pretty OEM especially when painted. It works with what your car already has instead of adding too much and the vents are pretty subtle. The only other hood that looks OEM would be the slek with the powerdome, but that hood doesn't have vents. I personally don't like powerdomes and think the Revozport is the best.

well personally it looks very OEM to me, but the aero catches change the game... it sets the car racing look to a very high standard and perhaps a hardcore racer.

though on BBK, i always find it the simple and logic way, when M3 is heavier and bigger than our cars, it has the exactly same brakes with us, me wishing for brembo upgrade is more to the aesthetic rather than true performance, i dont have any tracks here in my town, nearest track's 30 hours away.. not funny.

Have you considered painting the black plastic clips in front of the vents to AW? What is the functional purpose for those 2 pieces?

A BBK is a performance upgrade above a cosmetic one. Many people who track their M3's at a minimum upgrade their pads or their brake kit entirely.

The hood is much cheaper than any BBK out there.

If it is one or the other and u don't track- get the hood first. If u track, get the BBK first as the brakes will be an improvement you will feel much more than 23lbs weight savings and vents.

Sheil nailed it on the aero catch function.

I thought about painting them but later decided not to (and Einser M talked me out of it). The car already has a lot of black details and is pretty aggressive so the black catches blend in well.

They are a very functional piece and I personally think they look good and are justified on any carbon fiber hood equipped car that is modified at any level.

Wow, I did a terrible job following the conversation of the thread and blending the aero catch before I asked lol. Thanks for your response. And by the way, very very impressive 1M conversion on your 135i! Looks great!

The revozport hood looks really good in person. But here's another option if you have a good body shop and want to keep the oem hood.

That was the thing I was referring to in an earlier post. The shape looks right.

It would be for pure aesthetics as it would be adding weight. I don't like that it has the m3 intake vents, as they would be fake.

Does any one ever think about to cut out the holes and insert the air ducts on the stock hood for heat ventilation purpose? Is it an easy task?

Yeah, well I get the sense you've never owned carbon fiber hood or trunk. If you want oem fitment without lift then you need a metal hood. +CF panels are delicate and will crack over time due to vibration and use, so you also get better longevity.

It's just an option, and surprise - you don't have to buy it
