yup. seibon > vis.

i wouldn't buy a carbon fiber Hood that wasn't branded. it's hard to find seibon hoods on ebay but vis hoods are all over it--and grade a quality at that.

an vis oem Hood usually ships for around $500 on ebay, which is great. you really can't ask for more than that.

I got mine off ebay. It was fairly good quality. No bubbles in the clearcoat, the weave was flawless. The edges were a bit rough, but the fitment was pretty good. If you look in my profile, there's a gap at the bottom of the Hood, but that's just cause my dumbass didn't tighten down the Hood evenly with those hoodpins.

looks like crap, if it's cheap then the material must be cheap!
