This lightweight FRP + carbon cooling bonnet is designed and manufactured by VRS, a company by Varis. This product is designed specifically for the BMW E92 M3, giving the vehicle an aggressive appearance from the front. All Varis hoods are supported with carbon composite materials to ensure a rigid and strong cooling bonnet. This product is lightweight, composed of carbon, and increases cooling with the vents.
This hood is designed to allow the use of the OEM striker, emblems and dampers.
The water temperature and oil temperature during the circuit and high-speed driving can be lowered reliably, and the removable duct cover is provided to prevent rainwater from entering. The water accumulated in the cover is designed to fall around the radiator core support through the inner rib.
A lightweight and high-rigidity carbon bonnet with 3K twill carbon on the surface and 12K plain weave carbon for backup using VRS’s unique molding method. In the VSDC manufacturing method, carbon composite is used for the inner rib (back bone) to achieve further weight reduction while ensuring higher rigidity.
Items that are in stock in the US, either at Bulletproof’s warehouse or at a supplier’s warehouse, are generally delivered within 7-10 days. Special order items from overseas take considerably longer. As a courtesy Bulletproof offers delivery estimates to our customers which take into consideration manufacturer availability and shipping schedule. These estimates represent our best guess based on previous orders from the manufacturer and do not in any way imply a guaranteed delivery window. Many manufacturers work in a “just in time” inventory system and often take 2-20+ weeks to produce an item once an order is submitted. All deliverable items are then sent to our Japanese warehouse. Bulletproof ships a minimum of one full ocean freight container every month from Japan, oftentimes more than one a month. Ocean freight takes an average of 4 weeks. Typically it breaks down to one week in Japan for paperwork and customs, two weeks by boat and one week in US customs/clearance. Due to the wide number of variables between manufacturer and shipping schedules, delivery estimates are simply just that – estimates. We attempt to estimate conservatively and we usually deliver faster than our estimates suggest. It is not Bulletproof’s policy to guarantee delivery time of any special order item, this is impossible for us to do. By ordering you acknowledge that there is no required delivery ETA and an order may not be canceled or altered due to manufacturing or shipping delays, all ETA’s are provided as a best guess only.
