i decided to debadge my car and i knew it was repainted but i assumed it was done well. i got the badges off and the shop who did it obiously sucked because they didn't take off any of the badges. anyway there is basiclly like acura and rsx and type s written in paint chips.i can't stand this so i am going to get it painted. it should cost around 350 dollars. i was wondeing what a new hatch or a carbon fiber one would cost. ik carbon fiber is alot more. i think it looks ok... is it that much lighter? like could i even tell a dif? thanks. ....searched no luck

he means look up the price of one on google. There you can find a vendor who sells em. They will be lighter than stock, but youll probably loose some of the integrity of the hatch, and the fitment will never be perfect (original is always gonna fit better)

he's from Nebraska. I heard they just got the internet last week :thumbsup:
lol.... Put some honda badges on there. CF hatch probably save 10lbs or more, but doesnt come with glass. Even a used hatch would cost you about a thousand.

btw, the carbon fiber will probably just look cool (if the car is done to match the style), but you wont really feel the weight. Also, you said it was $<400 to paint your hatch vs 650 for a cf hatch, which youll also need to pay someone to move your back window to that new hatch.

carbon hatch plus FAL lexan windows equals super light sweetness...just no radio antenna, good bye rear wiper, not DOT approved, have to run all of your wires through sharp edged carbon/fiberglass, need to transfer all of your seals, and finally have a professional install it so it lines up decently but never like it did from the factory. That's how I'd spend my thousand bucks woot!
