Would you buy an aftermarket bulge hood?

I want to make visible to aftermarket companies that may be looking here that there's demand for bulges in their aftermarket hoods. It's my favorite part of the GR Corolla that isn't available on core editions.

I could go without those bean shaped vents though, or maybe a redesign if they want to put some sort of ventilation in it, so long as there's built in channels to properly draw rain away from the internals.

I would really need to hold myself back from any mods but all of the GRC's are good to go in their stock form. I'm at the point of my life where if I'm not sponsored by a shop that's offering at a huge discount or even given it away for free to test, I'm not planning to just enjoy the car until I need to modify something.

Yes 100%. The CE bulged hood is cool, but personally I'd prefer the drop vent hood that was floating around the rumor mill in JP before we got the actual leaks (as long as the extractor is actually functional).

Also can we all just take a sec to appreciate how accurate this early speculative image was? It's like, pretty much dead on minus a couple small details. Bumpers dead on, fenders dead on. Only differences were the stamped skirts, hood vent style, wing and center exhaust. Amazing, must have come from an inside source.

I'm willing to bet we're going to have numerous aftermarket aero options within a year or two or release.

If I end up with a Core, I'll probably settle with the stock hood. The car is plenty aggressive without the bulge, imo. That said, if I could get a paint-matched bulge without the hood vents (which look a little tacky imo), I would consider it. I subtle hood scoop would be nice too, but I don't want to get too cozy with WRX owners ;)

I want to separate from them as far as possible too. Lol

That's a dope hood... And Seibon makes pretty decent fitting carbon pieces.
