    After a new bonnet for my 182 and was wondering if anyone knows the best website/shop to get one from and a decent place to get a paint job. All advice appreciated! many thanks, Rory.

    Where in the South West are you? Can recommend a bodyshop, for a bonnet just buy one second hand off eBay is your best bet really as decent new ones won't be cheap

    Renault charge 160 for a new genuine bonnet. Cant remember if that is with VAT.

    @Rorymango What's the matter with yours? I have one here in Somerset @ £30. Has some small dints from being pushed shut but nothing a body shop wouldn't be able to quickly sort when prepping for paint.

    You cant really get the dents out near the front as there is support bars behind

    Here is the cost and part number - personally would go for the platinum one in my link above.
