BMW E82 1-Series E8X Carbon Fiber Hood (FULL CARBON FIBER)
These are the first of their kind on the BMW E82 (1 Series) Platform.
A true USA MADE 100% Carbon Fiber hood using only the most bespoke industry materials. Our hoods are 40% stronger than a comparable Carbon Fiber(Poly Resin) hood and uses Aerospace Grade materials inside and out.
The inner skeleton is a beautiful XL Twill build structure that is 4 layers of 19.8oz 12k Carbon Fiber core. - Strength beyond most any carbon available. With a full 3 Stage Ionized Urethane Clear Coat process we have a show quality finish that our dozens of awards show truth in process. No "UV Lacquer" here like our competitors use since we pride our craft with a glistening finish.
The outer hood is an "AAA" Grade Carbon Fiber with a dozen options. From Classic 2X2 Twill to Forged Carbon and many more, we can make just about anything a reality. Gold Leaf? No problem.
OEM fitment and all OEM functions remain fully usable. Washer Nozzles will work just fine, OEM Hood Struts are no issue (no need for a reduced pressure strut), and the OEM Latch will secure the hood without the need for additional hood pins.
**We do recommend them especially if you exceed speeds over 140MPH consistently**
NRD 2x2 Twill hood weight is 16.2lbs(weight can vary by fiber style)
Full Show Quality Urethane Finish with a proprietary Ionizing process to give the greatest bond of clear coat to the hood
40% Stronger comparable hoods at the same weight index.
1 Year Warranty USA.
Integrated hardware so install is simple!
Our Bespoke 720S Vent system is available on this hood and if selected, we will make a set of vents to match the hood fiber chosen. (if you choose twill and add the vents we will make them in twill etc.)
Vents will come with block-off inserts to prevent rain water for entering.
