Which e90 hood to go with?

I have a black e90 with an m3 rep bumper and m3 skirts. the rear is stock non-mtech bumper with a hamann style CF diffuser with quad remus exhaust.

for the hood i'd like either black or CF...i don't like the look of huge vents...i do like power dome. any suggestions?

Get the M3 hood and have them close up the vents before they paint it.

I have a vented vorsteiner hood and really like it; car runs 10 degrees C cooler in the summer... no good for the winter though. The vents are left CF but if you painted them over you wouldn't be able to see them really.

How's the Remus US Sound Race Exhaust working out for you? I know we got that setup a few weeks ago and I do see in your avatar that you've gotten it installed. How do you like the sound of the exhaust? We do have two different carbon fiber hoods available for the E90. I'll go ahead and send you a PM with more details! In the meantime, here are some pictures of the two hoods for you to check out!

hey! the Remus sounds great and it is still being "broken in" =) i'm still messing with the fitment since the shop I first went to totally messed up. once it's done, i'll send u some drive-by videos.

that first hood on the black e90 COULD work but again, the power dome doesn't look like the OEM one...im looking for something more rounded.

Nick

How come your lower grills don't have that bar running down the middle? Is that a custom grill or came like that stock?
