Be leary about 'too good to be true' prices. They usually are. Recently on ebay, there was a Hood for like $100...GREAT PRICE...till you read down and the shipping was like $200 - $300... Also, buy from reputable companies. Vis is a great Carbon Fiber Hood maker. Also, take input from people that have the hoods. Ask what they like about them...and what they dont. thumbsup

Yes, don't go for "amazing" prices. You get what you pay for. VIS is a good brand, but expect to pay for it.

Also check if the retailer has a fitment guarantee, and make sure you get shipping insurance in case it is damaged in transit.
