Since 2011 I've been searching for a used hood as my little brother backed into me while we were installing some HID's in his car. As we all know, there is limited number of B5 S4's that made it to North America so it's been a needle in a hay stack kind of search. Finally I found one a short drive from home from another B5 S4 enthusiast. It was from his "parts car" that sadly got flooded after a drain valve got plugged.
Installation of this new-to-me hood took me about a hour getting the washer hoses/wiring in place and the hood aligned perfectly. The following day I did a quick clay bar over the hood to try and get as much contaminants off of it and a quick wax. When it is warmer out I'll do another clay bar treatment as it still needs a little more love. That said, I'm happy to have a dent free hood back on my S4.
