Any carbon fiber vented hoods for the E92?

I was wondering if anyone is making a CF hood for the e92 coupes. I know vorsteiner makes great hoods for the e90 but couldn't find anything for the coupe. Anyone has info on this?

The CF hood for the e90 came about two years after the release of the car... you may have to wait a while for the e92 version.

Looks like an the Autobot logo minus the eyes.

I wonder if Japanese companies like Bomex, Veilside, Do-luck, etc would ever make a hood for the E92. Yes I know it's a German car, but asians are getting their hands on these and with the tuning possibilities, who knows.

I'm certain Vorsteiner will come out with their version. Many e46 M3 and ci's have it.
