Seibon Carbon: Quality Still Wins Awards, not PriceSo, you’ve decided to go for that stylish carbon fiber hood for whatever reasons you may have had….i.e. traffic poles strikes, pedestrians strikes, your friends car, bunny rabbits, or maybe you just want to lighten your car up for racing purposes. Whatever the reason may be, there’s only one company that THMotorsports is willing to endorse, Seibon Carbon. Why only Seibon you may say? Well, if you’ve purchased others, you would know.

There are too many companies out there with the “lowest price”, but not all can claim the best quality. Having said that, there’s one company that the import tuner industry has grown to trust. That company is Seibon Carbon. Here at THMotorsports, we actually had stopped carrying carbon fiber products all together as a direct result of many complaints from our customers. People were receiving carbon fiber products for their car that just didn’t fit and we won’t sell any products that we wouldn’t put on our own cars.

Luckily, a year back THMotorsports traveled to SEMA and we were formally introduced to Seibon Carbon. This is where we learned about their automotive quality standards. We were overly impressed with their production standards and fitment of the products, so we decided to give them a shot, and we’ve never looked back. We’ve had thousands of satisfied customers and have even received compliments on Seibons’ customer service.

Here’s what some of Seibon Carbon’s customers have said:
  • If all the parts I bought went on this fast and easy it would be unbelievable. Took about 15 minutes to remove the OEM hood and install the Seibon MG hood. Great fitting really top shelf product. Extremely happy with this product. - Glenn J.

  • Well, I used to have a VIS OEM-style carbon-fiber hood. After selling it, I just received my Seibon OEM-style carbon-fiber hood. Since there are a lot of questions on here regarding carbon-fiber body panels (especially hoods), I thought that I'd do a little comparison for you all to read...  - Matt W.
  1. Weave quality: Seibon wins.  When you initially look at the weave pattern of the VIS hood, it looks pretty good. It seems pretty straight and uniform without any twists or swirls. However, when you look at the weave pattern on the Seibon hood, you realize that your VIS hood looks like crap compared to the Seibon hood... as a matter of fact, when I first went to my local shop to pick-up the Seibon hood, I was upset because I thought that it was simulated carbon-fiber ( the weave was THAT PERFECT )
  2. Edges: draw:  Both the VIS hoods and the Seibon hoods have rolled edges, which is a huge plus over hoods ( such as the Invidia hood ) that have cut edges.
  3. Underside: Seibon wins.  Both the VIS and Seibon hoods have black fiberglass undersides... however, the VIS underside looks like a flat black piece of fiberglass, where as the Seibon underside looks like a finished product. The Seibon hood has a gloss black painted underside that reflects light nicely and actually looks like someone took the time to paint it. The underside of the VIS hood looks like crap next to a Seibon.
  4.  Badge: Seibon wins.  The badge on the underside of the VIS hood is made from laminated plastic... it eventually cracked in half after a while. The badge on the bottom of the Seibon hood is made from brushed aluminum and is embedded with the Seibon logo. It looks much better and is much stronger.
  5. Clearcoat finish: too early to tell, but VIS sucked.
  6. Since I have only had my Seibon hood for two days, it is hard to say what the gelcoat will do after a while. However, the gel coat on the VIS hood turned yellow after a period of time less than one year, and eventually wore completely down to the weave. I hope that the Seibon hood doesn't do this, but I don't expect it to. The VIS gelcoat sucked... time will tell if the Seibon gel coat will or not.
