It appears we have six, how do we proceed? And what is the timeline? Because I will soon be storying my car for the season (likelihood by middle of November at the latest). So, I am hoping I can sneak in to get it installed before than and hope to have help to get it on my car as I don't have a means for transporting a hood from Toronto to Ottawa, unless I can get a friend to help me out in the area......

This sounds tooooo sweet, I hope the quality is as good as the price. :-)

okay manufacturer has requested deposits be sent to me directly.... not sure why he would prefer this i think it has to do with keeping his shop low key or something... none the less deposits of $250 are to be sent directly to me... I'll be giving him my hood for the mold once we have all deposits in hand. At that point the mold process could take up to 1 week to complete.

Allow another week for the hoods to be prepared.

Unfortunately it is required that i have your hood latches in hand at the time your hood will be finished.... The bmw hood symbol would also be helpful if you want him to put it on.

The only downside of this entire ordeal i just heard was the issue surrounding the hood shocks... unfortunately he can not install them onto each hood because of the risk of it not fitting properly if it is out a few inches.... However i've been told he will prepare some creative approach to deal with this so when you get your hood you can transfer the parts over conveniently... maybe spot weld or some prefabbed drill holes for bolts... i'll see what happens here.. he needs to check the setup again to figure it out.

just to clarify

hoods will be oem style and finish with oem style vents..
oem nozzle spray locations will be exact
oem bmw emblem will be accepted


feel free to ask questions publicly here or pm

sounds very sketchy, almost like he doesn't want people to know who he is? Maybe incase things turn sour? or his quality is shit? Anyways hope it works out for everyone.

Look me know how the hoods turn out.
Once he has the mold, would he be able to make more?



Edit: You already mentioned their name and google says:
Cf Technologies Inc
70 Frid Street
Hamilton, ON L8P 4M4
(905) 527-6767

I guess the GB participants atleast have some info to go on, but i still don't feel comfortable, so ill wait

hey it makes no difference to me.... the building is a manufacturing plant.. its no so much open to the public thats all... anyone who has a problem can call and ask for mark themselves... i'm not hiding anything.

to answer your question yes once the mold is made...others can get a hood too... not sure if it will be 500 though

well guys considering we are approaching the second week of october, and realistically only have one more month of decent driving weather... im considering making this a winter project... whats the concenses on that? in other words we'll just push this back a month.. i still need to gather deposits in the meantime...

otherwise i'll have to have my car out of commission for a week as i wont have a hood to drive with... unless anyone has a spare laying around

I am good w/ that. I won't be able to install till Spring anyway (i.e., no time to get out to Toronto) and don't really want to make another trip out there in the E36 since it is getting close to crappy weather time. :-)

Car is going into storage anyway at the beginning of November......I am sure manufacturer will hold on to item till Spring and then hopefully, you can help me install it on my car in the Spring and dump my old hood??
