Default Hail damage

My 370 has suffered hail damage to the hood and roof. Know that I will get good money to fix these problems. I would never really think of buying the carbon roof cap but in my current situation I now am. Has anyone installed the "Cap" before? Let know how it fit and who made it and how it's holding up. From what I gather it just sticks on top or the roof and nothing needs to be removed to fit it. I am in Germany and frequently drive at +130mph for sustained periods. I would hate to see that thing come flying off. As for the hood, that is just a matter of making up mind on the style that I want. I know it will be a pain to get either of these items shipped to Germany so if anyone knows of companies offering the products I mentioned that will ship to Germany let me know also.

This is why I like BMWs. When my friend lived in Washington, he had both his BMW and 350z parked outside and it happened to hail hard one time. The 350z got dentz but the BMW only had 1 tiny dent.

That's the reason you like BMWs?

Just a lot of the build quality is very high, including paint.

Back in the day I had a civic that was only three months old that ended up with $7500 of damage due to hail. When I went to trade it in a year later they said that the car had been totaled and offered me $2000. Went to another and they didn't mention anything and gave me what you should. Close call.
