Raised Carbon Fiber scoop on stock body?

Ok I have a stock body on my car... I want to put a carbon fiber raised Hood scoop on...My car is silver (have a greedy exhaust and carbon fiber tail lights) Do you think the scoop will look retarded since I dont have a body kit on my car??? confused

Should I just go for the OEM Carbon Fiber scoop or for the raised carbon fiber scoop?

i wouldn't add any type of body mod until the car was lowered. the big gap between fenders and tires is what looks tacky and is augmented by adding things like nice rims,body kits, wings, Hood scoops, etc... at least do your suspension 1st then anything else after. imho

I'm all for a raised Hood scoop just not in Carbon Fiber, go for body match. thumbsup
I've seen that 100 times on celicas without a body kit and it looks hot!
