    Bonnet

    Alright peeps,

    my bonnet has two medium / large dents in there not a sharpe angle more like a curve if you no what i mean, anyway im looking to get it fixed either with a bonnet re-spray or a now bonnet, to which is my question, this should fit my 2000 S3 or any 1997-2001 bonnet like this should be a striaght swop?

    Any bonnet should fit yes, however bonnets are pretty tricky to get to sit right if your planning on putting it on yourself

    just got a quote from a good body repair that ive used in the past and it was 40 it they will just pop out or 120-140quid for a full re-spray and dents taken out.
    what you think of that?

    120 quid sounds fine for spraying, however remember if they cant pop the dents out they'll just be filling them with cataloy - i wouldnt want that to be honest

    try a dent master

    this may be as cheap and less hassle if you have a dent master in your area
