I would do the black but do it with glossy black and do the roof too! I think it would look good with the orange of your car. Carbon fiber is overdone...

The real CF is pricey. A hood alone would run you at least $500. Not worth it if it's just for the look.

Might save some weight though.

I'm gonna go with negative. I just think it doesn't add anything visually appealing to the car. I mean, what pops in your head when you see a car drive by with doors that are a different color than the rest of the car. I just think it's looks like a ricey Frankencar.

Carbon Fiber vinyl wrap is way cheaper then then buying a CF hood or trunk, might wanna think about that....
