Anyone in Cali have a Pre Facelift Coupe TiAg hood for sale?

Just curious...this happened today at Venice Beach so I'm debating on fixing (if you even can) or getting a new hood. I've seen them on here from time and if the price was right I'd just pick a new hood up. If you have something between the triangle of SD/SF/Vegas let me know

Thanks

Nice choice!!

I honestly have no idea what they go for. Post some pics up tomorrow and we can go from there. I'll see what insurance says too and maybe that can help the process

Idk... but I nevered like that vis hood it looks ugly imo...id stick with the oem hood or go get a oem m3 hood looks so much cleaner. Or get the vorsteiner gtr one the vents and middle scoop are totaly different. Just my 2 cent bro....

I like the contrast. I really do. Are you thinking of painting it?

im a little tapped out on money at the moment cuz i just bought the hood and the VMR wheels within the last 2 weeks . but yeah i plan on painting it and leaving the carbon vents exposed as most other hoods are painted that way . but for now exposed carbon is fine . OP^ the vorsteiner hood to me looks pretty much the same to me i know its not the same but i dont think they differ too much .

What are your thoughts on asking price for the hood? Also the swap would be fairly easy I assume...?

in the classified section the only one i saw was priced at 250$ it was a black one . so i think around there . it has the blacked out grills and the carbon black/white emblem . i can even hook u up with the rear matching one as i have it also . as for the swap it took me about an hour . definitely need 2 people when it comes to taking off the hood and putting it on once u disconnect the harness , hood shocks , ground wire and tubing for the winshield squirters . 10mm and 11mm with ratchet and a screwdriver was all i used

Pm me your number. Ill call you tomorrow. I've seen them on cl from $75-$300 so it may be in the ball park. I'd prefer my chrome grills and roundel so that might be some quick money for you if you sell your grills.

Um.. there is a big difference between the two hood. The vis one, the grills are ugly ass fcuk and I think they are removable. Correct me if im wrong and then comes the middle bulge in the middle of the hood. If you wanna be different from others customized it and patch the the inner vents up. But you mind me asking how much did you pay for that vis hood?
