towards the end they claim they spent $500 on the hood. To me its a little annoying when people talk like that its our problem that they spent that money, maybe im just being weird about it.

It adds not value to the car. People just don't understand that. I have over a grand in my hood, but it adds no extra value to the car.

Its just the way they write it makes it seem like the posters are blaming people buying or considering that they spent the money on it to me.

I see it more as I want this price because. And a bank wont see it that way. Mods add no value. He'* better off pulling the hood and putting a stock one on, then selling the hood seperate.

Value is not determined by the seller it by the buyer and what they are willing to pay for it. You can ask for the moon, but you certainly are not guaranteed that you will get it.

I was thinking that was the stock hood. Even so, the scoops are usually fake anyway, unless the hood is modified. Ram air is at the nose, the rest is just for looks

There'* a local guy here with that hood, and I don't think it'* all that great. Ya, looks better then a stock flat hood, but I like the WS6 hoods much better.
