I received the hood five days after my order and the quality was superb. I got instructions from Car Hoods and fitted the hood myself but when I removed the old hood I found that I needed to replace the rear cable. Car Hoods Ireland sent one on overnight delivery and all went well. I was trying to find a reasonably priced hood for months. Thanks for your help.

Car Hoods Ireland fitted a mohair hood to my 3 series BMW. The back window was frost damaged and the hood was looking a bit tired. I was going to just replace the window but I was quoted €550 from a BMW dealer just for the window alone! Car Hoods Ireland did what they said they would do and it looks great.
Great service.

Car Hoods Ireland fitted 3 VW Golf hoods for us. When our friend saw the superior quality, he got his hood replaced even though the one on his car was nearly new. The fitters then did our 1974 VW Beetle. They got parts for us that we couldn't even find in Ireland, and we paid half of what we were quoted by the dealerships. Very helpful, nice people to deal with. We would have no hesitation to recommend them highly to others.
Thanks Lads - Colm, Damien & Dave - Kildare

Damiens 1974 Beetle, and just look at the fit of that hood, you'd swear it grew there!

I was quoted €3200  from BMW. You did the job for less than half that amount.! The car sold a week later, it looked so good I didn't want to let it go! A great service that saved me a lot of money, Thanks.

Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the wonderful job that you did with my Mazda hood.
Not only was your turnaround excellent (ordered and fitted in a week), so was the quality of the workmanship. Please extend my thanks to your colleague too.

We fitted four hoods for a group of VW enthusiasts....

VW Mk1 Golf   They totally transformed this wee car which belonged to my late wife....great job. I wasn't charged for any of the extra work that Danny did on this car, he said "he just wanted to leave it right". - Great Job - Liam O'Sullivan, Dundalk

Left my car in @ 10am, picked it up at 6pm. Perfect job, great service. I was quoted €3250 elsewhere, it cost me less than half with Car Hoods Ireland, and it doesn't look like the quality suffered because of the cheaper price.

Highly Recommended!
Furgus, Galway

It's refreshing to deal with somebody who knows what they're talking about and delivers on their promises. I paid for a part that the dealer said would take a week or more to get and it was delivered by you the following morning at nearly a third of the price. Thanx for your time and help

My hood was leaking badly and the interior was soaked. Car Hoods sorted it out for me in just a few hours. We stayed overnight in Ballina while it was being done. Lovely town and very nice people to deal with who know their job....Recommended!
