    Default HQ factory or aftermarket alloy or steel bonnet hinges ???

    hi
    Hinges are getting old and considering options

    Opinions on the following

    Rarespares re production about 320$ complete pair

    Alloy polished with gas ram ,,quick look suggests around 500$ upwards 1000$ Is there differences in quality ???

    Good question mate..
    All these parts are getting thin on the ground
    Like you said, the Very Pretty hinges are pricey..
    The Rare Spares variant would be worth a try
    I have seen them on the shelf and they "look" the same..there must be some decent stuff that comes out of China..
