in a desperate need of a bonnet

Hi there,

Managed to crash my beloved 159 a week ago the damage is not too serious, but local breakers are going mad with their pricing. Or I'm just not used to "new(ish) car parts" prices... I'm not trying to cheap out on this car, but a huge brake job is ahead (all four corners discs+pads), and I have to buy new tires. And I was driving home from my workshop with brand new tie-rods when I crashed it... so I have to cut some corners here.

I was quoted for ~250 pounds for a used bonnet.... which is insane in my opinion. At least it is the same color as the rest of the car, but far from perfect.
For comparison, I found one in Slovakia for ~150 gbp. The paint is perfect, but red. So it wouldn't be economical to ship it and paint it..

How much is a bonnet in the UK? I have good contacts for shipping, so it wouldn't cost me too much to get one shipped to Hungary.

Color is "alfa grey" i believe it is 565 color code.

Let me know if you have one! Or know someone who has one..
