Hoods Question from graham peck

Submitted on 27/10/2010

can this be repaired?obviously the job doesn't have to be perfect..graham...essex Model: bmw330ci convertable


We are currently helping a company develop a new system to repair cuts in convertible / cabriolet hoods and would welcome the idea of a car to try out or new products. However, have herd you are thinking of buying this car, I'm now  have taken that into account. I would suggest you account for a new roof as this new technology is not yet proven. Plus the roof also needs a machine clean and a reproof which would mean spending another £169.00 on top of that.

I would suggest that you take off the price of a roof before you negotiate on the price of the car. If you don't then you will be faced with the cost, because, unlike a scratch or a dent, even the next buyer in years to come will want that problem sorted and the price for the new roof will be the same or more.

Good luck
