I know in Vic CF bonnets are illegal, and have a friend with a Silvia in QLD and he got defected for CF bonnet, just ended up painting it body colour. If you are purely after the weight saving, this will only help a bit, but these are the guys u want to contact. You can even convert the front of your car to a BA if you want. They do custom work aswell, all ADR approved.

I'm pretty sure if the CF look is what you are after, you could just get a ADR approved fiberglass one, then get a thin layer of CF over the top. Apparently the sub $1000 CF bonnets you see are exactly that.

stuffing with your bonnet is dangerous for you,pedestrians as already mentioned and your pocket.
have you seen where the 1st crash sensor is in an el?
if its a track car ditch the air bag setup while your there to save a few kgs :)


2 years later you still feel the need to say this?
