HPF FULL Carbon Fiber BMW E46 Hood
 
We only build the best and our NEW HPF FULL CARBON FIBER BMW HOOD is no exception to that rule. Our extremely strong Carbon Fiber hood is being built by the same company that builds several of our NEW Carbon Fiber parts. For those who have received them, they will notice that they are EXTREMELY strong, EXTREMELY light, EXTREMELY thin, they fit PERFECT and the finish doesn't fade ever. They've been building extremely complex high quality carbon fiber parts for the aerospace industry for years and have also produced some remarkable hoods that I've seen that meet ALL the requirements listed below and then some. These parts have a much higher melting point as virtually no resin or fiberglass is used and they don't fade even in hotter climates with tons of sun.

The following are our requirements for the HPF BMW E46 Hood.
  • It MUST work for most E46's.
  • It MUST have strong internal webbing to support the attachment points to the rear hinges so the hood doesn't flex when you open and close it
  • It MUST have a super strong hood latch so that no hood pins are needed
  • It MUST be fade resistant
  • It MUST be blemish free so the hood can be run without paint
  • It MUST simply bolt on without modifications

Updates are coming soon. :)

Chris.

This is a good thing seeing Vorsteiner has stopped making an E46 hood. Get some pics up asap

Commanderwiggin 07-01-2012 05:37 PM

Need some pics...painted Imola Red of course ;)

Edit: A CSL styled trunk that meets those specs would be nice too ;)

Only for M3 or will you make a non-M version as well? The product description above doesn't mention anything except its for E46.

MaverickM3 07-02-2012 03:23 AM

The M3 hood I have on my 325ci came directly off an M3. I didn't think there were fitment issues for the hood. All the lines matched up the way they should on mine.

Wow - sounds really exciting. Cant wait to see this. Congratulations HPF!

Noice!!

How about an option for the z4m.... Our only option is the varis unit... Amazing but expensive.

You'd do really well with a z4m option IMO....

It doesn't fit perfect. I am really picky on the lines of the car and even with adjustments, it isn't 10/10.

For more details it is covered in this thread by deafboy: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...340&highlight=

Maybe some day. I'm going to do the M3 first. The development costs and tooling are very high and I want to make sure we're going to be able to get the right demand at the right price point. Otherwise it doesn't make sense to do.

It's been long overdue. We now have the team in place to make high quality carbon fiber parts and you are going to be seeing a lot more of them.

Exactly. This hood should work on the E46 318, 320, 323, 325, 325, 328, 330 and M3.

MA Shaw still makes one. It looks ridiculously awesome, and is 450 cheaper than HPF.

dallasberry 07-02-2012 11:44 PM

I will give you money for a picture.

So are you making one hood expecting to fit all the above? Or are you making multiple hoods to fit M3, non-M3, coupe, sedan, facelift, etc.? it is still unclear.

I thought the same hood will fit on all except for facelift?
