sorry if this is a dumb question, but can the QV hood fit on non QV models? Does anyone know if its a simple swap or not?

If you have the cash, anything is possible. I think the Q hood is about $3500.00?
yea its definitely an expensive part, i get that. but do you know if it's a straight swap? like do they use the same hinges and whatnot?

Remember, front fenders and facia are different on QV. Not sure if just the hood will swap

The other issue (beyond physical shape) is the hinge supports, strut strength and latches. On most carbon-fiber hood retrofits the hinge support on the carbon fiber side is made stronger but the gas struts are a bit lighter. You probably have to do some close inspection of pictures or at a local dealer to see the details. Remember you won't be modifying anything on the carbon fiber side of the equation.

Now that MacGeek confirmed it, the question arises...... why?

The QV hood is CF because the engine is heavier and they wanted the car balanced. Putting a CF hood on a 2.0L would, in theory, compromise the weight distribution.
Unless it is a Q4 in which case it will bring the weight distribution closer to 50-50.
It seems that most QV wrecks have ruined the hood...

On the M2C Forum, people are lining up to buy CF hoods at $4k unpainted, so there is plenty of market for people who want to shave a few pounds or just want the bling factor.

It is indeed a nice feature, but......if one can spend that kind of money on a hood, one cannot afford a QV??
