    WTB Used Hood - 2012 Countryman S ALL4

    Was told about $700ish to repaint the hood. Can't afford that Poor car is only worth $4k.

    The best price on a respray for just the hood would be a local body shop. If you just have scratches in the hood, how deep are they (to bare metal). Get yours resprayed is the best bet for cost if they are to the metal. If not through the base coat a paint shop may be able the get them out with some compound buffing.

    Hmmm, do they give a credit for the old hood? :-) Know of a place that will repaint? Current hood is dent free, just a bunch of scratches.

    No, I am pretty sure it is lightning blue, but you can remove the bezels, scotch bright and get it resprayed pretty cheap. Unfortunately a lot of horizon blues out there.

    Probably wont make the run in order to set up at Carl's house
  12. I still would have paid the extra to have it done, but Freddy was pretty insistent that it would not be necessary on an R53.
  13. An induction service cleans carbon on the fuel side of your engine, this does not touch the back sides of the valves. If you don’t believe the gen1 engine with SC (boosted) has blow by then the walnut bast is not necessary. Induction is a chemical cleaning method, like the detergents already in your fuel just more consintrated. Comparing the two methods are apples and oranges, they clean different parts of the engine one is chemical one is mechanical. Two different things, like comparing the price of a sway bar and coil overs. Both are suspension parts but different thinks

  15. I managed some pics of my N18 with 103k on the clock. I was told it might not need the cleaning but I’m glad I got it done.
  16. It was about 125 bucks less for mine.
  17. I'm curious is the Induction service along the same cost?
  18. Update on 1st Gens - I was told very clearly by Freddy that it is not appropriate/necessary to do the walnut blasting on the 1st Gen engines, even if they are very old and high miles, like mine. Instead, they will do an induction service using BG 44K. So yeah... I guess I’ll be doing the induction service instead.
