The GTS is a different design to the OEM metal hood and it's made from carbon fibre. You wouldn't be able to punch a hole in your OE hood and simply add the plastic piece, you'd have to completely reshape the metal and design of the hood which I am not convinced you could easily.

I think your best option would be looking into buying a GTS/CS hood or an aftermarket equivalent?

There are a few options out there including Suvneer (https://www.suvneermotorsports.com/c...minum-gts-hood) and RW Carbon (https://www.********.com/bmw-f80-m3-...tyle-hood.html) to name a couple.

I had a mate of mine that specialises in these tyres of things and he reckon
He can do it if I can find that plastic piece
As for me I was thinking the same as you
Iíve never thought twice about doing something like this but he convinced me it can be done for 3-4 times less then the prices for an oem gts hood
As much as I loved the gts hood I canít see myself paying that much for it
As for aftermarket Iíve found some for like 1/3 of the price but itís the fitment that Iím worried about
Thanks for the info it was very helpful

If your mate is truly the picasso of bondo, wouldn't it be easier for him to work on getting an aftermarket GTS hood to fit like OEM versus hulk smashing your OEM one?

Lol I know itís a mission but he keeps telling me he can do it
Iím very intrigued to see how he goes about it aswel
He said if worse comes to worse he own me an m4 oem hood lol
I know there are aftermarket hoods aswel but Iím very worried about the fitment and the quality
Iíve ordered a few things online for my car
On the net it looks very good but once recieved the quality looks so cheap so disappointing
Has anyone on here from Sydney have order these gts hood before ?
I would like to have a look first if possible
Thanks

Just buy a aluminum gts hood probably same price you have your friend to "do it". And you still have your original hood!

No. I think most of us want to see the end product of a modified OEM hood!
Shipping a GTS hood to AUS could be costly. Better off having your mate do it!!

Hi, Iím looking at the hood option also and as far as I know the fitment will have some larger gaps. Spoke to a few people and most of them are saying that bigger gaps are inevitable. Iím seriously thinking about the oem hood but it cost around 9-10k aud. Spraying and fitting would be another 1k.

Would anyone buy or sell a used hood?
