Welcoem to D-series..I would think that if you gewt one and are worried about the elements since you don't have a garage then maybe spend hte $$ on the hood. Then once you get it first put a good coat of wax on it. Then maybe invest in a good car cover for that litle bit extra.

If you keep the hood waxed I would say that there won't be any problems/issues..

Hope this may help...

I live in Michigan and have had my CF hood for about a year now. Haven't had any problems with it yet. My suggestion is to spend some money and get quality. ViS has been great for me.

i had bad luck in canda with my cf hood first it flew up and cracked the clearcoat and streched the cf. next i hit a woman frum behind and split the two layers of the hood all wuz fine for like 2 months when i wuz driving and the cf rolled back and flew off. everyone told me i should take off the hood in the winter but i didnt listen. my hood standed the weather fine i didnt treat any differently than a stock one so take it off if ur paranoid.
