The BMW Active E is an experimental model. You cannot purchase an Active E as it is only available for lease only with BMW.

Every component in this case the Hood is exclusive to the Active E and is therefore individual to the car , you cannot order an Active E hood without having a VIN number and even if provided with one, because it is an experimental vehicle BMW will take an interest because they would want to examine how the car coped in a real-life crash, and will repair the car itself.

BMW will not sell you the Hood if you do not have an Active E.
It is the same regarding BMW M3 CSL , M3 GTS and M3 CRT they will not sell you parts if you do not have a VIN number and ownership of those vehicles.

If your dealer says he can get you one then he is either stupid or suicidal.
The M850i is evidence that BMW have got their mojo back when it comes to dynamic sports cars...
