Knowing my self, I will end up getting on of these, painting it as well.
I think this hood completely wakes up our sleepers (pan attended lol)

i have been through 2 carbon fiber hoods on my VR4 (both around this price range) I think they were made by VIS. fit was always pretty good and never had a problem with fading altho i do wash and wax my cars like crazy so that always helps. also if you do get it painted it will also get cleared so you wont have to worry about it fading. BUT the problem i did have with both is the gelcoat cracking in random spots and especially near sharp edges where the vents would be. I have no idea what caused this, I, nor anyone else ever sat on the hood or put weight of any kind on it so i have no idea why it would do that. needless to say after the second $750 hood doing it (after about a year or so) iv had it with carbon fiber body panels lol went back to stock

the way i drive, i would only feel safe if i installed hood pins, preferably aerocatch but it would take away from the look i want.

That's my car, it is the TS-II, the hood just wasn't shut in the picture. There are no gaps with the hood, it fits great, like OEM. Although I have an is250, I don't expect the F hood to fit any better or worse.

I made acrylic windows in the vents since I used to daily the car and the supercharger has a large exposed air filter.
