CF hoods may run in excess of ~600

The repair will/can be done for much less.

Congrats on the car.

That sounds awful high for a non-accident. I would have expected that for hail damage, not a rock truck.

I have seen higher for rock damage. Around here people haul large railroad gravel and they can leave some serious dents in a car. Plus it's a Subaru and they are always expensive...

Stock hood is lighter than cf, plus it doesn't peel like the cheap 6-800 dollar cf hoods. Your factory hood is aluminum.
Not trying to be a d*ck, just sayin'

Did you quote include reclearing the hood? The coatings that tend to come on fake CF hoods tends to wear/yellow quite fast.

Can we get a picture of this damage? It just seems excessive to me. I've had rock chips pull out in front of my but I've never gotten anything other than paint chips or a miniscule dent. Hell, I've had a truck kick a construction barrel at me and it didn't do any damage.
