cons: people look at your car more, if it is a light hood, might need hoodpins / locks
pros: looks good, lighter hood / car

get a cf hood (oem style of course), and black hoodpins, and then get a cf trunk lid too. then use the rest to paint your roof black. i wish my insurance would do that for me, haha. good luck man.

pretty much, you might have to pay a little out of pocket money for the hood cause its more expensive than an OEM hood but you can do that no prob. the shop might offset the expense because they do not have to prep and paint an OEM hood. contact your shop and see what you can work out with them.
