    Default what metal is the bonnet made of?

    just wondering as the magnetic L plates don't stick to the bonnet,wings,boot etc - great! not much steel in it is there??? they just slide off the bonnet.



    Cheers - Rob

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Think it's the other way round Paul. Steel for pre-face, aluminium for facelift, that's why you can't put hydraulic lifter on the facelifts because it will bend the bonnet. The facelift bonnets are lighter by a long way.
