I'm debating on what to do with my hood cuz I scratched the living shit out of it a month or 2 ago and I would either need to repaint the entire hood or buy a new one. I already went to Kia and they tried buffing it out and it only took out minor scratches but there's a few major ones. Any suggestions on what I should do? Repaint it? Get a new one? CF on a bright silver koup?

Looks like they flipped the vents around, which I think makes more sense, and looks better.
Anyone know how much?

I don't think I would like CF, but painted to match with vents, would be interesting.

If you guys want these, then we can get them. Group purchase, anyone?
Hey Tom what would be the price tag on the hood ?

*side note*
I bet you could pull the fake vents out and put real ones in its place if they are fake, little extra work thou, thats what I'd do atleast;)

the driver side vent looks to be in the perfect spot to cool the ECU for those who strayed away from the stock air box

^^ Sure cool the ECU down by pretty much submersing it in water... The way those vents run (if open) will create a very wet and dirty engine bay. Better off leaving them sealed.

well said, and when will people realize that the ECU does not run hot, or even warm at all..
