It will look good. It kinda sucks that your car is black, it won't be as noticable IMO. But it is still an awesome mod and totally worth it. Thats the Hood I want. Good luck.

it'll look good. But it's ok if you don't notice it, then the car flows better without having a totally different color Hood, but it still looks good if you had that. Carbon Fiber hoods are sweet and on black, it looks awesome.

You can just use your stock latch. Hood pins definitely wouldn't hurt for a Hood that you can hold up with one or two fingers.

Yes you do. Sucks doesn't it. But I actually think Hood pins look pretty cool as well. I have heard from some other people that they feel like the stock latch feels very loose with the carbon fiber Hood. Tronix, from TC had their invader Hood fly off. So I would get the pins just in case, its worth it. If you do get the pins, I recommend having them at an angle facing the front center of your bumper. I think that looks better than having them straight.

I think that Isaac says what I meant much better than I do. This will give you a second opinion as well.
