I was thinking scorpp b/c their's is double sided carbon fiber. But I can't get in touch with them. I sent them an email about pricing and never heard anything back. So I guess my next choice would be the GTR hood.

Id only go Duke dynamics. D3 if I have M3 style parts and D2 if I'm msport.

If you want D2 I know it comes as an option for FRP, outer layer carbon, or inner and outer double carbon.

D2 hood and that's the only one I would consider. Too bad Duke Dynamic is hard to get in contact with and their stuff is hit or miss, as far as I know.

No experience with them but I do know that their reputation lately has caused people to so i'd personally stay away until their customer service game is stepped up a bit..

I was going to go with the D3 DD hood, but i've heard to many bad things about them lately..and the carbon creations and D3 are really similar.

to my knowledge you can't. The M3 hood is a little wider then the stock 335 hood.

Actually its LONGER, and someone could make it fit if they were good with aluminum.

I would be all over a stock hood done in aluminum. Or a oem style carbon hood that fit perfect.
