Hi,

What are the pro and cons of the carbon fiber hoods?

Is it available for Maruti Esteem 2002 model?

Can I get a custom hood designed? (meaning with my choice of the scoop design)

Thanx.

nanu there isnt any replacement carbonfibre hoods available off the shelf either here or in europe (custom made can be ordered from specialist bodyshops in UK but they would be insanely expensive).

However we can provide you with a fiberglass composite hood same as the original or one with a vented design (in pic) which would be about 30% lighter than the original metal hood.

Cheers,

Arush

Try contacting "PJSPEED" on our forum.. He's already sold a lot of carbon fibre stuff. He'd definitely be able to source a hood for u.

Thats a great find on the carbonfibre hood nanu, at 539 euros it's about Rs.30k, add taxes, transport and custom duty to that, youll end up paying about Rs.50k for the same (like i said before... expensive!) in comparison to the fiberglass hoods that we have here for less than half the price. And yeah we do have performance mods and chiping available for the skoda.
