"Hood will be $849 +shipping which is $125 to you..
Weight savings over stock hood is 16lbs. pm me your email address and I will send you some images..
Very simple install...remove headlights, padding, and remove wires. Unbolt stock hood, reverse
the whole process with the CF version.
Not my favorite vendor but that'll give you an idea.
All that money for a 16# savings? Seems like a monumental waste of money to me... From what I've read, you can save more than 16# by changing the tires and wheels. Reducing mass of rotating parts will have a bigger effect on performance anyway.
The hood, or bonnet as some call it, in the Mini does more than in most cars. It holds the headlights, and thus is a structural member. Will there be increased vibration in the lights? Is the carbon fiber hood stiffer, and more likely to crack, or more flexible and less likely to hold the headlights steady? Is that 16 lbs. without paint? Does the hood go on unpainted? Will it look like a finished product, or like you primed a hood and forgot to paint it? If painted, does paint adhere to carbon fiber well, and polish up just like painted metal?
