What do you guys think, black hood on IB car?

This is from Forza... I'm thinking about doing a vinyl graphic that would look like this in the spring. I have the black grills and gills on the side along with the Vorsteiner boot lid, plan on getting black VMR wheels in the spring. Opinions please.

I'm not a fan, however I do typically prefer more of a stock look...

Even though I'm also normally a fan of a kinda stock look, that looks pretty good (assuming you do have a CF roof). I like the way that the black line on the hood rolls right into the windshield/roof/trunk.

By the way just noticed the mirrors...don't know if that's your car or not but I would suggest leaving mirrors body color if going for that look.

IF you have supporting mods to carry the theme thru out the car, im sure you can pull it off. But i do agree it gets old quickly!

If you have agressive mods then go for it.
But other than that, the black would be too overwelming.


sorry auto armour for using your pics.

I don't like it

Not sure how much it would cost to get that mod, but I think it would look much more classy without it..and you have the $$$ to spend it on something else.

Thanks for the opinions guys. It would just be a vinyl overlay so it would be cheap. I'm starting to agree with a lot of you, I'd probably like it for about a month and then want to take it off.
