So... I've looked in the usual spots, AM, LMR, eBay and found all kinds of options and costs.

One piece like stock? Two piece? What has everyone else used?

And once I put a new one in, how do I keep it from happening again?

1 piece looks more oem , 2 piece isn't that bad tbh , and it's alot cheaper.

It's just wear and tear .. from just age and the sun beating on it

I've got a two piece ebay special. Looks great, and. O issues thus far with it. Beats the price of oem, and if it cracks again, it's not a huge chunk of change wasted.

LOL $100 for a piece of plastic? It can stay cracked then.

Haha

Seriously. $100 for plastic. It seems like that's everything for these cars. I love the honeycomb deck lid you can buy, but it's 3 pieces of plastic and some 3m tape for $140. Ridiculous.

Exactly. That's a ridiculous pricing for plastic if I were to black out the decklid it would just be vinyl.

My cowl is a bit cracked but no need for change anytime soon. I thought it would be like $ 40 or something but $100 for plastic? I'm good lol

I did a 4v swap out of an Aviator. So that's an Aviator intake.

Carbon fiber isn't my favorite look. Too "rice" for me. I'm really considering that two piece to get me by for hopefully awhile.
