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.
