I got mine through Chicane Motorsports when Brad Perkins did a group buy several years ago.

Try to find the Dixis CF hood.

Also, the what swap.

Varis also makes a full carbon hood that might be just as easy (or hard) to source

Had a very bad experience with varis/bulletproof in the past. Long waits (knew that going in), but terrible quality and no support. Never again.

Can't seem to find it, any more info?

I'm in the middle of swapping a lightly crashed ZCP to s85, I'll try to start a build thread or something.

That was one of my worst ideas ever lol.

I will say that although the fit on the flossmann product is unmatched in my opinion the finish is 100% racecar. you will need to speed a good amount of money getting things smooth and ready for paint. The underside is raw carbon and not pretty by any means.

Doesn't answer your questions, but you could also look at CF fenders (performance euroworks sells a set made using BMW's molds) and halogen headlights if you have xenons now.

yep thinking of doing both. I am starting with a car with a light hit so I need to replace most front body panels, which is why I am bothering with all this now.

Thanks for the tip about the fenders will contact them. Best I found previously for stock carbon seemed to be streamline, and I'm not sure how I feel about that...

Got a reply from flossman and about to buy, still scared of fitment issues though hopefully it's as good as everyone says.
