    Carbon fiber hoods and sleeper look do not belong in the same sentence... good luck finding what you're looking for.

    windows visors are like unicorns for hatch backs..... unless your talking rear window then you have a couple choices, jy or new abs http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/AST1181.htm cf hoods you should still find on ebay or a couple of sites not sure where to be honest there light but dont make a huge difference

    cf hood do make a difference. my CF hood can be picked up with one finger. only thing is that the clear coat gel is bad and starts to turn yellow. I sanded mine down and got an auto shop to respray mine with PPG clear coat

    Is it weird that I can lift my hood (stock) with 1 finger?

    nah it isn't weird at all, most of the weight on the hood is towards the front with the grille and its bracket/support. IMO the price for a cf hood for this car would be better spent on wheels, better tires, suspension parts, ect. As Geddy has said, the visors your asking about are up there on the rarity list. Took me nearly 10 years to find a decent set and they are typically pricey, as far as i know i am the only one on the east coast with two sets.
