    Carbon Fiber Hood Scoop Pics

    I am wanting to add an aftermarket carbon fiber hood scoop in place of the factory scoop on my 2003 WRX. I was wondering if anybody had any pics or knew of any references of the bugeyes with these hood scoops installed?

    I am thinking something along the lines of this one for my car....

    Is there a particular reason why not?

    3 reasons:

    1. Size-wise, that scoop is absolutely obnoxious (consensus opinion)
    2. You can get a real JDM scoop for half that.
    3. A carbon fiber scoop on a painted hood may look awkward (personal opinion)

    I have a giant scoop. Had to replace a damaged hood and ended up getting a CF hood/scoop for free. It wouldn't be something I'd purposely put on, but it did grow on me. Looks bad at some angles and awesome at others.
