Ok about two weeks ago someone at my school pulled into a space i was in (i was double parked... :sarc: ) and hit me. Fairly minimal damage to front right bumper. My side marker is pushed in, dented fender, roughed up bumper a bit, and cracked the bottom of my headlight housing. Since i have HIDs in there i dont want to replace the Housing if i don't absolutely need to (cause i dont want to put HIDs in again). With the help of Blaeznazn24 i found a good shop to get things fixed at. So here is the main question. Since i dont want a new headlight housing should i get a CF hood instead? My hood needs to be painted anyway (to match with the bumper), so it would be easy to get the sides painted leading down to a CF grill. My 6 is performance white. If you think i should get a CF hood, what kind should i get? Should i get a CF grill to match with it? Thanks for the imput

If insurance is paying, by all means, yes. A lot of the time, CF is cheaper anyways, so the Ins company won't mind.

I would stick with seibon or VIS, just because the fit and finish is really good. I've had a couple of friends that have them on and they look really good quality wise and fit.

So no one would be against CF on P. White? Thats one of my main concerns. I like the look but I wanna hear what others think (yeah, before anyone says anything. I know it's my opinion that matters. Just wondering cause i can be a bit flippent sometimes..)

It will look ok. However you might wana keep up a white/black or white/cf look on the whole car. cuz if you do white/black/chrome, or white/black/cf it might start looken iffy.

I usually don't like mixing cf/black/chrome and all that but if done tastefully it could turn out nice. Just pick a direction and stick with it.

Hm, i think you could pull it off, it wont look as good as on a lapis blue but it will still look decent. Get tinted windows so there is more black on the car if you havent done so...
