Why is this called a "Challenge" style hood? Doesn't the real Challenge hood have the additional latches? Also, why does the one picture show the white paint and OEM vents through the vent openings? Makes it look like an overlay.

Please read.. the title says Challenge OEM STYLE HOOD. Meaning its oem style???

The white pics were before it was painted, they test fitted it to be sure fitiment would be on point.

I have more pics coming friday and will post up.

Ah, sorry. I was focusing on the "Challenge" part. Why not just leave that out and say "OEM Style Carbon Fiber Hood"?

I am in need of a hood as we "speak". My car is in the shop, being repaired from deer damage, and progress is being held up becasue they can't find a stock hood. So I'm entertaining the though of going aftermarket, especially if it can be done for the same or less $.

Challenge is, I believe, the name of the company. And Nate why don't I know about this? You know my quest for weight savings... Need a sedan test mule

Looks nice...but i see it does require some type of additional hood pin? Takes away from the clean look...IMHO. Love the paint scheme nonetheless!

Does not require hood pins... I had it installed w/o them but decided to reinstall with the aerocatch latches. The car is tracked/auto-x'd a few times a month... So yha.
