Who's got the best CF hood on the market?

I am looking for the best fitting CF hoods.
I don't want any crazy styles, just the OEM style CF hood is good.

Who has had good/bad experiences w/ CF hoods?

I have to agree...VIS is the $hit. Mine went on and i didnt have to adjust anything, no need for hoodpins, and its CF wraped around the edges too. I dont know of anyone making a CF with this quality.

Modern Images makes vinyl graphics for cars, Fiber Images makes kick ass carbon hoods for cars.

I agree that OE tuning hoods are nice, and a bit spendy.

I have never seen a VIS hood.

I would never buy an APC carbon hood.
