I decided to import a brand new and genuine Border Racing Vented Bonnet for my SW20 MR2. From Japan, at great expense! Why? Well, the rest of the body kit is genuine Phoenix Power and I didn’t want to cheapen the car with non-genuine poor fitting parts. I am a purist, end of!
This modification was done by Phoenix Power on a few of their MR2 demo cars and I felt it would be a nice addition to my car and project.
The quality of the bonnet was stunning and the fiberglass craftsmanship second to none. I somehow managed to squeeze this into my E92 BMW and get it over to Chris at Unit49 for paint.

I won’t lie… the fitment was slightly off. Prominently along the front edge, going from a small gap to a slightly larger gap (left to right). This isn’t a massive deal for me and is actually something that is evident in all of the MR2 photos I have seen with a genuine bonnet fitted.
