Yes,I have a WRB.

Believe me.I would look stupid driving up to work with a CF hood on my car.I'm too old for that.Besides what would the cops think.

I have often thought of doing something to the exterior of my car, to make it stand out a lil bit, and make it more "mine." But having a WRB wrx, i figure my car stands out enough as it is to the fuzz, so i have often reconsidered on myself :-/

So it's actually a weight reduction on the 08+ models? The aluminum hood on my 02 is already a couple pounds lighter than the Seibon CF hood..

Yeah my hood on my 06 is the lightest hood I have ever come across. I have a friend that used carbon fiber wrap on his hood just for the look...and well...to cover up some hail damage...

You can certainly paint carbon fiber, but at that point, why bother putting it on?

I'm too old too for it, plus the cost to weight savings isn't really worth it IMHO.

But for you young kids do whatever you want, it's your car!
