OK... so i finally found the latch to open the bonnet... but found that while closing it it sounds like it's crashing up against something... just doesn't feel right.

anybody else experiencing this?

Best method for closing the bonnet - pull the bonnet down until it has about 40cm before it would be shut, then let it drop. I was shown this by BMW engineers. It stops you pressing the bonnet and causing any possible damage/dints.

The 'catching noise' is probably just the bonnet catch.

make sure it closes right on both sides though. Had an alarm uninstalled from the car and when I went to pick it up one side of the bonnet was fully latched and the other was not. It has happened before to, so be careful.
