That was me thinking of it, looking at this I've notcied it has the roof done too, and splitters, thats gotta cost a pretty penny. I do think it looks very smart with milano, but thats my opinion, some like it some don't.
Aeroworks Carbon fiber bonnet is around the 400/450 mark from shopping around.

i dont know what to think of it.... In these pictures it looks ok with the glass roof and blackened rims, but on my standard milano type-S?

Anybody that knows how much weight is saved in the carbon fibre one?

edit: carbon hood weighs 6,7 kg havent found anything concerning the standard one

im thinking of getting one around christmas
i have spoken with steve r-gt above in p.m.s on this subject... my bonnet will cost 200 to repair... or 450 for a carbon one... in the end of the day im losing out on 250 quid... id rather have the bonnet than something like HIDs or footwell lights...
