In my view if you do get bubbling bad - bonnet needs replacing. Had mine repaired a few times - even metal cut out and re welded - but still eventually came back - almost as cheap to get a new bonnet and a respray.

On a positive note when it first appeared on my car it was probably a good 1 - 2 years before it actually became a noticeable problem. However when it first appeared I did have a full dealer service history at that point.

Did you say you are changing your car soon?

All the best
