Hood options?

I am looking to order a hood. I am wondering if there are any good looking hoods that look better than stock? I already have looked into the Vorsteiner GTS3 hood and the Arkym hood, so are there any other good looking hoods?

Also look at G power, there's looks pretty cool too, I have a full carbon fiber that Hamann motorsports made. It's a one of one and looks so aggressive, I'm sure one of the big companies would make one for you also...heres a link to the g power buddy...http://www.g-power.com/fileadmin/ima...aube_M3E92.jpg

Really?? I think the hood on this car is one of the best features. Gotta love the bump outlined with heat extractors/vents. Not gonna change that one personally. I think in another thread someone said, "the hood gives me wood"! Not sure I'd go quite that far, but I think it is pretty damn nice as it is...
