I have a feeling you're right. I went to a garage to get an MOT done for my other car and got chatting to the guy. He was having the same issue. He ended up selling the car with a torn rear screen because he just couldn't find anyone to do it. Surely there's a solution to this! We can't be expected to change the entire hood just because the rear screen is damaged? My hood is in really good condition as well, which is really annoying!

It's a T plate 1999 model by the way. Not sure if this is to my advantage or not? Hoping there is a better solution to the later models?

there are a few firms that do about £200 stcs have a look at them.
Thanks. I am currently in discussion with them to have this done. At the moment, they are telling me to replace my whole hood, but the hoods in great condition and works perfect! Hopefully they can just do just the screen!

Still no joy with this. Called around everywhere and they are all mostly saying they will only fit a genuine screen from BMW. Just called them up and its £472 just for the screen. Cheapest place I've found to fit an original screen is £115, so that's around £600 all in! That's insane! Surely there's someone out there! PLEASE HELP!!
