2 question
1. i bought a authentic TRD spoiler spectra blue for $275 shipped. did i get a good deal? or did i get ripped off? it had a few chips
2. if i get a carbon fiber Hood do i have to get Hood pins? a friend told me i do, other wise the Hood could fly out meaning it wont get hoocked to the stock thingy? thanks guys

i agree. Great price for spoilier, i woudl have bought it if i knew. yea hoodpins are a must even if it comes with a latch. Not as strong as if welded on a reg metal Hood. Deff not worth the risk of craching the winsheild smile

you dont NEED hoodpins. ive had my VIS invader for over 2 years, have hoodpins sitting in my garage for about 1.5 years. rofl after i slap the turbo on, ill most likely throw the hoodpins on. ...and still, i wont be putting them on because i dont trust the latch, ill be putting them on because ill finally have the balls to drill into the frame, since you need to do so to mount the FMIC. tongue

I have heard that some brands of Carbon Fiber hoods do make a latch that actually does a good job holding the Hood in place, and unless you're pushing your car hard you can get away without doing hoodpins, but it still is safer. Do a search, some members have had their Hood fly up because they had no hoodpins.

you should do a poll...

Carbon Fiber Hood OWNERS do you currently have hoodpins installed?

1) yes.
2) no.
3) what is 'CF'?

i've the complete action pack, but the spoiler. i noticed my sides are a bit lower than the action pack front bumper. i'm guessing after market body kit will flow more evenly...
