I had to Contact Rex Super sport in order to get shipping cost. Shipping $490

Rex Super Sport CF Hood $650

Total $1140

Seibon Total $995
Savings $145

I knew Seibon was the right choice! 🤔🤷

Coming from Malaysia. All the reviews for their stuff specifically mention exorbitant shipping costs.
Big heavy package shipping from halfway across the world by a relatively small company. I would have guessed $500-$600.

The real question is what is rexsport using to protect the epoxy on that hood? I know Seibon uses quality clearcoat to defend against yellowing. If you need to hit the other hood with an additional layer of clearcoat that's something to think about.

Either one you buy should be ceramic coated right away.

Not to mention the insurance, if that package takes some abuse there's no way the hood is gonna stay pristine inside.

Yeah my entire front end is PPF and Graphene coated since 50 miles on the car. I plan to take the CF hood to the shop and have it PPF and coated before install. I'll probably let it sit until the Spring time.

Or if I get the Fever!

I'll have to Install it as soon as I get it protected.

This, generally you want to see this at both WOT and idle. Trims bouncing at idle can be bad.
-10 to +10 is a normal/safe range from my understanding
Thank you for your help!

Idling in D at a light, I'm seeing STFTs bouncing from 0-5, LTFT between 0-3. When I put the car in reverse, STFT ranges from -11 to -16. Idling in park, STFTs 0-5, LTFT sits at 2.

I've never seen the numbers in this range when I have my accessport on.

dark grey. same color as the e-golf interior plastics.
Gotcha... I know we don't get the e-Golf anymore either but you might check to see if the e-Golf was/is using the same part numbers.

I did gloss black trim conversion a while back and found the Golf R had different part numbers from the GTI (and from the Golf SEL in some cases)... yet all were the same gloss black color. I ended up ordering a combination of Golf R, GTI and Golf parts based on price/availability.

id be willing to bet that the part number differences are due to the buttons and electrical connectors for certain pieces being different across trim levels.

Nope, I'm talking strictly plastic trim pieces, nothing with a connector on it... all the buttons are separate parts.

One of my old posts, I've been way down the trim conversion road, and actually converted my entire interior (headliner, pillars, etc. to black)...
