Need help deciding on hood

I have a '10 performance white mustang and am trying to decide on an aftermarket hood. I've narrowed it down to the cervini's 3" cowl hood or the VIS carbon fiber cowl hood. Cervini's will put me back about $1k painted and the VIS hood i've found for around $900 shipped. This is purely for the sake of aesthetics. I haven't seen many Carbon fiber hoods on white mustangs so if anyone has pics, feel free to post them. What should i buy?!

pics would help. I looked up both and not sure which VIS you are looking at. Either way I do like the Cervini. are you doing other carbon fiber stuff to the exterior or thinking just the hood. If just the hood i would definitely go White Cervini... but probably would either way. I like very clean looks... just my opinion though. Your car so there is no wrong answer

This isnt my mustang but mine looks identical minus the vinyl roof wrap. I attached the cervini hood and here is the VIS: 2010-2012 Ford Mustang 2Dr Cowl Induction Carbon Fiber Hood. I was thinking the black carbon fiber hood would be a nice difference in color from the white body but the cervini hood with black hood spears looks amazing too.

I love it. I haven't seem many pics of a carbon fiber hood on white but it seems this is the way to go. The hood spears really bring it together. Thanks for the pics :]

I planned on doing about the same thing. They make black hood pins but they could detract from the look of the cowl.

Looking over the total cost of a new hood I've also been considering something a little more subtle, like an oem carbon fiber hood. I can't find pics of a 10-12 with one anywhere. Maybe its a bit rare but does anyone of pics of this? Or if someone happens to be amazing with photoshop and can take the pic i posted above, #5, and put a carbon fiber hood on it id be most appreciative :]
