Seibon is a winner. in my book. But thats just my opnion. You will hear great things about both so it's all going to bare down to what you want. I believe Seiben is from Taiwan and so is VIS but I am just guessing, don't know for sure.

why?
Too many bad experiences , I can't even count anymore.(VIS)

personal experience?
Carbon Fiber overlay separating from the Shell.(VIS)

friend has one?
Yes, they hate it.(VIS)

who has what?
Lot's of people are going with Seibon since it is groing tremendously

heard from?
I heard from a friend that their customer service sucks.(Seibon)

fitment?
Seibon is good / Vis can be good at times.

finish?
Good (Seibon)

links?
www.seibon.com Try and get a hold of Mike and you might just get a discount. Very Happy

Bottom line if you want to the best of the best stick to original(Spoon,Buddy Club, etc....) Like I said I have heard too many bad things about VIS. I also heard bad things about Seibon but not even close to the bad things I have heard from VIS.

And Vis is not the way of life.

i agreee with you about seibon - its growing and many people go with them.

i thought VIS was from the states and seibon from overseas but dont know where. (?).

why
vis is highly overated now. Ive had a few that there hoods flew off completely, 1 had his fly back and shatter the windshield while doing 65mph

personal
none other than friends and family

who has what
everyone I know now has seibon hoods. all except 1 dude has some noname which looks like crud but fits ungodly perfect lol.

heard from
same as before my friends and family

fitment
can go either way with both, but seibon has a much better track history from what ive actually seen.

finish
they both are nice to start, but a year from now is when it matters. also the seibon has much nicer edges than most other hoods.

basically same as carbon said. Ive heard good and bad on both, but only bad things on seibon was the price lol. but you get what you pay for.

I have a Seibon for my EG.
I picked it up locally and it was only used for a few months then garage kept it in the original plastic and corner protection pieces. (much like I do now)
I?d seen many VIS hoods on friend?s cars, so I wanted to see if Seibon hoods were all that.
After seeing it, I had to buy it. IMO it?s a lot better quality and fitment than any other hoods I?ve ever seen.

Fibre images for me here if i get a new one. VIS is not consistent enough. Plus the fibre images hood can be 7 lbs!

here is what I can tell you. I have NEVER seen a seibon hood warp or discolor. I have 3 friends with Vis hoods that all have VERY large dips in the center from the hoods warping. The choice is obvious for me.

It has been 100% confirmed that seibon is chinese, still don't know about vis, but I did hear that vis have revamped their product line and increased their quality so is up to you, I would still go with Seibon.

The link I posted about the guy complaining about seibon, that guy had to get in contact with everyone from seibon, in the progress he found out Seibon was from China.

I've never seen a vis hood warp, but i have seen them crack and have bubbles form up, BIG ONES!

AGAIN I say fibre images.
