TLX flat hood???

Hey guys and girls,

New owner of a 2018 TLX and after doing some research I couldn't find any after-market hoods that are plain flat (without the 3 bulges like on the stock hood). Has anyone been able to get one? I really don't like the bulges on the stock hood because they reduce visibility, i sit on the lowest seat position, and in my opinion makes the car too aggressive for no reason. I have plans to upgrade the intake, make add a turbo . So i wanted a hood that's just flat like the old TL hoods and make with some side scoops. Any suggestions?

Thanks for reading

no.

the fuck would someone create a flat hood for?
simply put, why take away the gorgeous lines of the hood..???
2nd of all, this isnt a tuner car...it can be with time....but as of now, it's not something that has a lot of aftermarket support.

Yeah an aggressive hood on a sports sedan just doesn't seem right. 😕

Some say the earth is flat. Some say that the TLX's hood should be flat.
