**********s FRP GTR Vented Hood E92/ Is it rigid?

**********s FRP GTR Vented Hood E92
Does anyone know how rigid this hood is? I'm concerned that the hood could stress and crack during raising and closing.

Does Anyone have one installed or know something about the hood? If so tell me about any issues you have?

I do not care for those looks and at 500 for a hood I can not imagine the fit would be very good.

Yes I thought for $500 the hood may not fit will or degrade in a few years. What style are you into M3forMe?

I like the current hood but with the CF intakes. I am going to do that upgrade one of these days.

Too each his own though. If you like that style go for it. I would just make sure you get one that fits real nice or comes recommended.

My bootlid is carbon top and FRP bottom. That stuff is pretty rigid. I would worry about fit more than rigidity.
That being said my trunk fits perfectly
