I like the black bonnet look on white cars. But with that said I would do it. Reason being that it just seems like your a "wish-i-had-a-carbon-fibre"...

I purchased that bonnet 2nd hand a couple of years ago, never had a chance (or could be bothered) to paint it..so left it in its original blue/green/black kinda colour. Most people have grown to accept it - some like it, some cant stand it - Pierre? :P

No offense Waggin, but it does look a little unfinished...

At least in your car it is unfinished rather than having gone to the trouble of changing its colour. The last thing you want to do is look anything like some tacky rice burning pod racer. Please dont turn to the dark side :?

IMO, black bonnets only look good on a certain kind of car - black ones :D
