VIS, Seibon are well known brands. Basicly, there are some questions you may want to investigate first. Inform about dry vs wet carbon (different price, quality and manufacturing process), standard fit, fade/yellowing in time, chipping, manufacturing flaws (dents), does it need an extra clearcoat, etc?

If possible, you should visit some car shows in your area and ask about fit, experience, unforseen work involved, need for hoodpins, etc.

Personally, I'm leaning more to Seibon, as I've seen good consistancy in overall quality, fit and finish, but I'm sure this applies to other brands as well. Keep in mind that the good stuff never comes cheap and it's equally important you get a good warranty & return policy from the shop you purchase.

save up extra and get the carbon/kevlar hood and trunk. they are expensive but well worth the money and last longer. be prepared to cough up money for clear coats. invest in a car bra if you like it not chipped.
