I've been looking out for anything but there's nothing yet. It'll come at some point. I mean Seibon sold half the car for Hyundai Accent and there's zero aftermarket support for the last two generations of that car. Seibon Does have a test fit program you can sign up for at the bottom of their site. They're in Industry, CA, though. No good for either of us.

OH I remember those from the Corolla9 Forum ! They also have the TRD versions somewhere..
But yes I'm patiently waiting for the aftermarket to catch up as this vehicle has so much potential!!!! D:
I'm looking for a version like the DS style from a 09 gtr vented carbon hood if I go turbo (see attached photos) or a scoop like version like (with or without vents) from a 03 Impreza wrx for our vehicles. But to each there own!
(Sorry for my typing I'm those people who think alot of things & have opinions lol)

Can definitely see you're enthusiasm and excitement @iMQuinn ! But a vented hood like that would look really nice. Even something simple just like the dsm turbo hoods:
