Request: Carbon Fiber Hood on Alpine White

I've been searching but cannot find any pics of an actual alpine white e92 with a carbon fiber hood and carbon fiber roof. Please direct me to the right forum or link if you know of one. I want to see if it looks wicked so that I can decide if i should get a cf hood or not for my e92. Thanks.

Search for "E92 M3" on ebay and you will be surprised to see a few sellers carry CF hood for the E9x M3.

Like this one for instance.

What would be the point in getting a CF hood besides looks? The stock aluminum hood is already very light as it is.

Exposed carbon parts such as hood and chunk look plain stupid IMO. I would get those painted. Small carbon parts are fine, like grills and mirror covers.

I agree that it general it has a real rice appearance...but...give me a few weeks and I will post pics of my trunk done with a candy clear coat by IND...you cannot tell at all that it is exposed CF, you have to see it up close (and I mean really up close) to see the weave.
