Question CF or repaint... what do you think?

So here I am left with this dillema...

I have a WRX with the well known very thin subaru paint.

I just had my front bumper repainted because of a little clip in it and I got the full repaint for a cheap price.

I detailed my car 2 days ago and my bood looks sandblasted. I drive on the highway all the time to schol and back and this winter ruined my hood (as well as my windshield) I dont know if I should have it repainted or if I should pay around the same price for a carbon fiber hood.

My wrx isnt going to be THAT modded by tthe end of the summer (turboback exhaust, engine management, lowering springs and new wheels) and I am wondering if the CF hood would be too ricey or if it would be a good bet.

Tell me your opinions on detailing with a CF hood and looks or my regular black hood.

Bryan

Go with the CF hood, it will look good on your black WRX.

Repaint. Nothing wrong with the stealth look.

Get the carbon fiber hood. Don't want to have the chipping again later. Subaru paint is really cheap. Getting my stuff repainted.
