Default NEW 02 Hood CF or not?

So my 02 blue WRX recieved some serious hail damage and I have to replace the hood, so what do you think, should I get a CF hood? Does anyone know of any websites with QUALITY cf wrx hoods? and also a picture of a blue wrx with a CF hood would be great, thanks.

Only thing you have to remeber about carbon fiber is that, if you get into an accident, the OEM hood has crumple zones, the carbon fiber one does not. If the hail damage did not crack the paint, get it fixed. Dent Wizards or Dent Doctor can do wonders. Good luck.

I recently was in the same situation, a tree fell on my car and ruined the hood. I deliberated for a while and then realized price/fit/finish and longativity would be much better with oem aluminum. I have seen quite a few cf hoods that do not look so good after sun fade, weather, and rock chips. Plus fitment issues with some brands not to mention they are actually heavier in some cases. That is not to say if you get a nice quality carbon fiber it wouldn't be sweet, but that is quite a bit of money. As far as looks, it really doesn't matter bc it is a perosnal opinion and you can always just paint it. For the $300 I had to put twds a new hood, I just went with OEM. Good luck.

I got the Chargespeed CF hood, and the 04-05 STI hood scoop with the '02 WRX base, and it was $1200 exactly $740 for the hood, $300 for the scoop, and $160 for shipping, you can get this from www.RallySportDirect.com .
