So this Storm Ciara this last weekend in the UK made a ridge tile fall off down the roof and straight onto the bonnet of my A5. It left a nice dent and pierced the top layer of the bonnet, but thankfully left no damage other than the bonnet itself, so I'm trying to find out the part number or where I can locate either a new or used bonnet. Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

Did you manage to find a replacement bonnet by any chance?
I did in the end, turns out there are lots of variations of the bonnet available on eBay that look like they would fit but likely wouldn't, so not worth taking a chance on. Best course of action is to order an official replacement bonnet from VW for £450.

I have since claimed the bonnet replacement through my car insurance as my excess is £450 and asking for quotes in the local area from body shops basically put it at another £450 for fitting, spraying and blending in the bonnet to the wings. So I went through the car insurance to basically get a free paint job over what it would cost to do it myself.

Hope this helps.
