Are you looking for a carbon fiber hood or stock hood. I might be able to help you with the stock hood. Pretty soon im gettin a carbon fiber hood and im gonna be gettin rid of my hood if you wanna buy mine. Its a black hood

if your going to buy a new hood either way, i would go with cf, if your just going to paint the one you got black that would be cheaper, but if i was going to buy a cf hood i would get one that is vented instead of getting a cf stock. the other thing is you will want to make sure you get a real cf hood instead of a hood that just looks like cf, the cheaper hoods on ebay that arent real cf will fade in just a year or 2 and look like crap. so make sure if you go cf you get a good quality hood. just my opinion.

You can also just put a UV protective finish on it, thats what I did with mine. It has last me three years with no yellowing or fading, and still looks great.
