Need advice

Hello everyone, I have a night blue metallic GTI but I have the Golf R grille with the silver line and ED's Golf R headlights. I also JUST purchased RSE12 hyper silver wheels to match the silver theme I have going. My question is, right now I am getting my hail damage repaired. The guy messed the hood up and I have to replace it. He said OEM hood would need to be ordered and painted OR I can have a carbon fiber hood (all paid by insurance). I can't find any pictures of our NBM car with that hood. But I found a similar photo. What would you guys do?

OEM or Carbon Fiber?


I should mention I have 2 weeks left and I am moving to Germany (military). Thanks in advance.

CF. If you don't like it I'm sure you'll be able to find someone to trade with.

Carbon Fiber would look great definitely would need the clear bra though. If you do end up going that route pics please.

Official Night Blue Metallic GTI / Golf Thread

Mounted a new Thule roof rack and took some photos today on campus at UCLA. The paint job still fools me sometimes into thinking itís black.

Purchased yesterday, collect next Thursday, can't wait!

Has anyone done anything with their mirrors? Can't decide if they would look okay with carbon or black effect mirrors...
