bad boy bonnet?
« on: 19:07, Fri 11 November 2011 »
hey
seen a few 5s now with wot seems to be called a badboy bonnet where it covers more of the head light making it look alot meaner, im liking the look and wanting one day for myself but is it something they buy or can u mod ur own bonnet with some plate and alot of filler  :lol:  also does the bonnet have to be moved further forward to go over head lights ?
thanks  :D

I have one fitted to mine. I brought it as it is, but it doesn't look like it's that difficult to do.

Basically someones welded a triangle shape the cover the headlights, then skimmed/smoothed  with filler on the outside.

There is no need to move the bonnet forward.

excellent mite have to have a go at that then, reason why i asked if it needs moving forward because normal bonnets sit flush with the head lights "kinda" thanks for the quick reply mate

I totally agree. it used to be the right mod but that was back in the ali g days in my opinion. by keeping the car most oem you will be easier off selling it someday. :)

get one already done, as said o/e is the fad at the mo so will be fairly cheap. then in a few years when the fashion goes back around you will either be in fashion for cheap or sell it for a profit. dont worry few years after you'll be able to buy it back cheap when it all goes oe again
