Ok gents so about 40 days ago my Bugeye WRX got smashed thanks to a tourist who ran a redlight. Now i need to replace my hood. The insurance company has allotted $450 for me to get a new one. I'm working on making that a bigger number but am writing this assuming that they will like all insurance companies basically do all they can to screw me.
So here are my options and a few thoughts
*I had a fiberglass customized hood as you can see in the pic below. Really like having the top vents since i know my motor can use all the cooling it can get.
*I dont really need the stock hood scoop since i have a FMIC, this is more of my own opinion but i could be wrong.
*I dont want to go back to stock steel if i can avoid it. Seems like not only will i get heavier (marginally granted) and hotter under the hood.
*I would love carbon fiber but cant find anything CLOSE to $450 that i've been quoted.
*I dont mind fiberglass but cant really find any online.
What would you do? Im really looking for direction here. Is there a hidden gem of an online shop that im missing?
