    A3/S3 Carbon bonnet GROUP BUY Ł560+ vat

    Hi Guys

    8P 05-08 model

    Iv been looking into this for a while now and finally decided on this company out of many to get a carbon fibre bonnet on my S3 www.PERFORMANCE-TRIM.com theyv said that a one off bonnet will be Ł1400 or if i we can get group buy of 5 persons or more the price will reduce dramatically to 560+vat and i think we may get that down more again !

    Theres a lot of bad quality cheap products on the market and iv looked into a LOT of places none of them compare to these guys their also tried and tested ! dont settle for a cheap grade fibreglass wrap as many are advertising these guys are the real deal and the discount is astonishing for only 5 people this wont come accross too often so if you guys want to get one for this price please PM me we only need 4 more people ! :-)

    here are some pics of the quality



    As i said above this oppertunity/offer wont come very often guys especially this quality so drop me a line as il be posting on other forums too
    Aslo pop your name on the list here just cut and paste

    Am i right in thinking that this group buy is for a carbon fiber bonnet sheet that goes on top of the stock metal sub frame of the bonnet so the standard bonnet lifters and bonnet catch are used so there should be no fitment issues.

    the carbon bonnet is moulded from the stock bonnet so it's a reproduction but in carbon so all the standard mounting points etc can be used direct replacement or i wouldnt bother myself also jonnyC has one of these on the golf and the quality is simply amazing, fitment, weight, looks i love it and wouldnt use any other company im exstatic that this discount is available more than half the price off with only 5 people !!

    So entire bonnet is Carbon then with no metal parts to re-enforce it to stop flexing etc?

    as far as i can see at the moment but they dont flex a lot carbon is solid as far as i know, iv emailed them for full specs into details the bonnets are fantastic quality and im sure if they had too much flex or any other problems that they would be overcome and redesigned, have a better look on the site and get back to me with any other questions and i will investigate further for you they may be reinforced but being lightweight i dont think ther would be any metal reinforcing..

    What i am mostly interested in is weight saving over standard bonnet plus the claimed weight of the carbon bonnet so as to check data, how much flex is there in the bonnet ( a friend of mine has a carbon bonnet on his Skoda and it bends like a fiber glass sheet ) , to confirm that the stock hinges and bonnet catch are still used and if they are used are they fitted to the bonnet or do we have to supply and fit the parts are selfs plus finally what is the P+P cost for the bonnet.

    the weight is also what im interested in, their back on friday il get replys then
    yes you use your stock hinges and catch and there isnt a lot of flex in the bonnet its very rigid as i said a friend ( jonnyC ) has one from these guys if youv read his build threads or know him youl know he doesnt go half measures only the best will do, when i seen it and lifted the bonnet etc i knew i wanted one and will ONLY buy one from performance trim ! if it comes to it il pay the 1400 i WILL have one !
