Track Helmets---Local GTA dealers.

So its time for a new helmet. Mine is a SA2000 and can't use it anymore at most events unfortunately.
I was using a Bell M3 helmet, was happy with it. Not too heavy, but my favorite feature is that it has a very large eye hole, which is a must for me. Bell has replaced it with the new M4 model, and that is high up on my list.

So what are ppl using and why? Any recommendations would be very welcomed.

Currently considering Bell, Stilo, and Arai. Anyone know of any Arai dealers in the GTA, auto not bike helmets??

Other IMPORTANT questions is, with airbags....do you get a close faced or open faced helmet. SCCA have been a big proponent of open face helmets if your car is equipped with airbags. When I was at Watkins Glen last season, a few of the instructors again advised us to use open faced helmets since our cars have airbags.

I know Sports Car Boutique carries Stilo. Any other places in the GTA that I should check out, wanna try them on before I buy.

Thanks.

Paragon Competition www.paragoncompetition.com also has a good selection of helmets. They have Arai, OMP and HJC helmets. They're near Dufferin and 407.
