its depends how well your Hood fits, if its close to a perfect fit, you should be fine but if there is a noticable cap in the front then i would get'em.

My car's Hood vibrates like crazy at 75 mph. It's carbon fiber by vis. It's perfect fit but around 65 mph, I could tell that Hood's bout 1 inch up... I really need a Hood pin rite now.

spaztikid (Josh)-> wanna sell me one?? cheap? grin

I have no complains about either the fitment on my VIS Invader Hood or its stability at high speeds...however, I'm getting a set of Sparcos thrown on there next week, so everyone feel free to toss some links up to the posts where I said hoodpins are for little scared bitches grin

Damn, I heard about passenger side gap but didn't think it was that big eek My VIS Invader Hood is nothing like that. Also, I've driven in several heavy rainstorms with a SRI under the Hood and no problems.

get em, i would say don't get em if you have civic or other cars without scoop.
But our celica Hood shakes a lot. After having VIS and fiberimage Hood, i would definitly get em.
it doesn't matter if you have good or bad quality Hood, the Carbon Fiber is weak against multiple scratches from Hood latch.
