My dad's got a VIS carbon Hood
on his 250bhp audi A4, and he doesn't use Hood
pins. Been driving it for a year now (a LOT on the highway) and never had any problems.
btw, if it's a VIS Hood
they've got their logo on the Hood
seems like VIS knows what they're doing when it comes to Carbon Fiber hoods. everyone I've talked to says they fit straight on with no problem. same with the A4. no problems at all. exept we had to move the washer jets for the front windshield.
