Carbon Fiber hood question
Hey guys, just wondering what the benefits of having a double sided carbon fiber Hood is compared to a single sided Hood. Besides it being double sided, is there anything that makes it that much better. Thanks in advance.

lol is that the only benefit of having a double sided one. Then I guess I should just save some money and get a grade A single sided then.

is it tru that the carbon fibre Hood is illegal as there is no crumple effect in a crash.
