    I fell really lucky with this bonnet as it was brand new and the guy was in stockport who was selling it

    So i went round and offered him cash £280 and it was mine :)

    The bonnet is from Fiber images in the states and is a full carbon bonnet including the frame.

    The body lines well and the fit is great :)

    anyway heres some pics :) (Maybe i should of wiped the polish off before taking them)

    I'm wondering how much weight would you save because I might be interested in buying one. Are they only available in the States?

    You wil need to pin the bonnet down as these bonnets tend to flip up.

    It was on Ebay for over 2 weeks, im surprised someone didn’t buy it sooner, mind you it had billybravo's name on it for the weight reduction.

    I was tempted as it would have looked the dogs on a dark car but couldn't justify it when i have a clutch to buy soon £££ !!

    Works well on yours especially with the black wheels, looking good.
