I had bought a red 04 ion qc & had installed progress 2" lowering springs & Thermal R&D cat back exhaust . had the windows tinted & put a hood scoop on it. i took it in for an oil change at 8800 miles & was talking to one of the salesmen - they had a blue 04 ion redline that someone had returned with 2600 miles on it....long story short...i ended up trading in my ion & $1500 for the redline... my question to you all is should i get another hood scoop & get it painted to match the car again? .. see attached photo of old ion.

Congrats on the new car, you will love it a little more each day you drive it.

My vote is NO don't put a hood scoop on your car. Mine had one when I bought it, but the dealership removed it becuase I didn't like the way it looked.

Here is a pic of it.

My vote is....NO! I don't blame jmonte345 at all for requesting for it to be removed. It just doesn't look good. If my car looked like that when I was shopping, I probably would have never bought it. I would be driving a Impreza RS now and been less happy.
The one on the red QC looks better but I still say NO!

it's the wannabe evo one, fully non-functional, tell them you want a functional one so it actually serves a purpose

it's not functional, you can looks those up at summit, or other places, i actually ran across them looking for a functional one, which, by the way, are hard to find that look good.

i like how that evo vent looks on the ION, i bet with the redline's ground effects that vent would look sick.

it's a lame ripoff scoop, it would've been cool before the evo was around, but if he likes it there, more power to him, i just prefer the clean look we already have, unless it's nice looking (which is subjective) AND functional

yeah i went to the dealership to get some more info on the RL and when i did i ended up taking 30 mins just to gawk at this really clean black one they had there, i knida like how the stock RL hood looks, with the slight rise in the center.
i dont know about this but i remember when the RL's first came out they had a blue one at the dealership here on the showroom floor, it had a carbon fiber hood, and black 10 spoke wheels with a polished lip and a carbon fiber wing, at the time i fgured it was some sort of package, but now that im acctual paying attention to the RL's i ahvent seena nything like it since.
