maybe it was true for the e46s... i mean if your a small company and your asked to produce more products within a short period of time b/c demand is increasing, they probably arent gonna scrutnize as much over the finished product... i'm pretty sure they can handle the load now tho.

Couldn't you paint over the cf hood? Maybe that would defeat the purpose, I don't know. I love their hood, I've just never been crazy about the cf look. If you paint it, you have the look of a perfect body match, but also get the lighter weight, more strength, and those cool vents.

For the 1 out of every 200, 300, or 400 pieces they make that DON'T fit, Vorsteiner offers replacements. We had a customer who wasn't happy with one of his parts - Vorsteiner sent out a replacement.

On the whole, though, the parts fit immaculately!
