Would you order yours with the matte black hood?

I personally might, but would prefer if they had it in carbon fiber. As I find with the matte color, it made the color look a bit dull?

Maybe if the seats had a bit more color to it like red, more sporty look. Then perhaps the matte hood would go with it?

Still not feeling it tho.

If an aftermarket version does become available or if AR comes out with a carbon fiber hood, then i'll look into getting it and even styling it in the same way as this matte hood with only the sides in body color. But now i'm thinking if more of the lower portion of the bumper could be in red, might look better that way compared to how it is currently.

Carbon fiber could look good, but I think it would be better paired with the white body color. I also think this matte finish is oddly shiny for a matte finish.

I know that Carbon Fiber hoods and trunk lids are being considered in the aftermarket. I'm not sure if there will be a market for them though. I don't have solid data on this yet, but it looks like it would cost about 1000 bucks to save about 5 pounds, just not a good bang for the buck there. As soon as my E. Abarth shows up, I'll know more.

I could only imagine with all that together - would look awesome and definitely much better than what's above in the pic

Yeah Carbon fiber on a white body spider would definitely look sickkk!

Honestly, if the hood comes with that amount of shine on it, I'd want to change it or something. It looks strange to me. Kinda ruins the look.

Yeah it's no different than gloss..

It's still has a bit of shine on this one, but not as glossy as the red one, maybe it's the ligtening.



Kinda of hard to tell.
