WTB: X5 hood, ANY CONDITION

I need an X5 hood. I will be cutting it down and using it on a buggie, so it does not have to be in good condition. If you have a wrecked/damaged/dented one, I can probably use it. Please let me know what you have!

Sorry, no spare X5 hoods lying about my place. How about cupholders from an E46?

Well, I wasn't really planning on putting any cupholders in, but... Do they make five-point harnesses for your beverages?

Maybe some more information will help. I'm building an offroad buggie for rockcrawling competitions. The buggie will be registered with the competition sanctioning body as a BMW X5 because it is different than what everyone else is doing (mostly Jeeps, Toyotas, etc...) and I have not found a cooler looking hood and grill to use. I've been looking at every hood and grill on every vehicle and I cannot find another one I want to use. My buggie is 46 inches wide at the widest point, and the hood will fit inside some tube at the front. That means the section of hood I need is no more than 43 inches wide at the back, and 24 inches wide at the grill. An X5 hood is 64 inches wide at the widest point, so I will be cutting a ton off both sides to make it fit. Cutting so much off, I can take a really trashed hood and make it work perfectly, so if anyone knows of any X5s that have been in an accident, I would really like to have any information as to the whereabouts of that hood. It may be unusable to you, but I can probably use it!

In Western Quebec? D'oh! That's one's pretty beat up, but if you were closer (within a state or two of Utah) I'd come get it! Anyone else have something similar, or with damage to the sides?

BTT. Still need one. I'm in Utah, but I would drive a state or two away for a good deal on a beat up hood.

I can't help you out with the hood, but did you happen to compete in Neuroc this year with the yellow buggy?

Are you watching eBay? Here's one that just recently sold, and I seem to recall another that was on there with a bit more damage.

No. I saw that buggy at Supercrawl this year though. It kinda made me mad because I though mine would be the first to use an X5 hood. I competed in UROC all year (and for the last several years). I had a blue YJ front half with a tubed-out rear. The tube was silver. We were third for the season in the Extreme West series. The new buggy is lower, lighter, narrower, shorter.... Basically smaller in every way.

Thanks. I have been watching ebay. In fact, I emailed the guy who sold that one. The problem is that he would not ship it, and it would cost more to drive from Utah to Ohio to pick it up, than a brand new one from the dealer would cost.

Okay, so I found a hood. It's in rough shape, but I'll be able to smooth it out and it'll be just fine for what I'm using it for. Now I need a pair of grill inserts, the vent inserts, and a BMW emblem. Anyone have anything? Here's a pic to kinda show you what I'm doing (sorry, it's a crappy camera-phone pic). The one grill insert in the pic is broken, so I need both. Thanks.

I have a set of grill inserts - perfect condition. Make me an offer.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I'm actually not really sure how something like this will go over on a BMW board. Not really the same cup of tea, y'know? Hopefully a lot of the racers and modifiers will be able to appreciate it. That thing will probably spend a great deal of time on it's lid, so a new/good hood would be a waste.
