About Bonnet Hinges
The bonnet is a rigid cover, which is fixed with BMW bonnet hinges attached with bolts, that protects and allows access to the engine compartment.
The bonnet is a crucial part of the car body, for beneath it is housed some of the most important components a car needs in order to run. The bonnet is made up of an outer panel which is designed to be smooth and streamlined, and an inner panel which is strong and offers protection to the engine beneath.
The BMW bonnet hinges are attached to the bonnet, allowing the bonnet to be fixed to the frame at the front of the car, mounted at the corner of the inner wings, and with the action of the BMW bonnet hinges, the bonnet opens outwards.
If the bonnet hinges on your car seize up due to rust, the pin in the pivot joints will break. If there is a rattling sound coming from the bonnet, it's worth checking the bonnet hinges as loose hinges can cause vibrating and shaking. If the bonnet is not aligned properly with the car frame or the bonnet is difficult to close or open, it could be a problem with the bonnet hinges. If the bonnet hinges are seized up or damaged in any way, they will stop working properly and affect the bonnet opening mechanism. When replacing the bonnet hinges, buying BMW bonnet hinges will ensure they can be mounted correctly and fit the bonnet of your car perfectly, being compatible with car make and model.

- Pop Art legend Andy Warhol was asked to hand paint a BMW, and he did the whole thing on a full-sized model in 24 minutes. He said afterwards, "I adore the car, it's much better than a work of art."
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
- The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
- One of the reasons older BMWs keep their value is because it's easy to get spare parts for even the oldest models. That's because BMW has carried on making car parts, even for cars that were built in WWII.
