need a new hood.

Hello,

just got my 2008 135i conv two weeks ago and love it but wouldnt
you know. something hit my hood so I now have to huge gashes in it.
the body shop says it will be around 700 bucks..

so thinking maybe i should get a cf hood.

can anyone suggest one and keeping the cost around the same as
repair.

also any place I could take it in San Diego would be great.

thanks.

i agree with nick and miro... it will cost a little more than the 700 buckaroos but i feel its worth the returns in looks.

BRRacing also has the hood and I believe they don't sell Vorsteiner parts but I'm not positive about that.
