Re: Problem with laguna bonnet!

I was always under the impression the Lag II bonnet was aluminium so the magnet test wouldn't work but a small scrape with a knife on the underside may reveal exactly what its made of. I fairly certain it ain't steel as it seems much too light. Aluminium can be a pig to repair as it tends to stretch badly when damaged.

Re: Problem with laguna bonnet!

I'm pretty sure it's aluminium too,it's definately not plastic/fibre glass.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
