    quick fmic question...

    hi all.
    i finally got to fit my cooler at the weekend, (what a job that was!!) lol i think it looks good, but when i posted some pictures on fb, i had a couple of ****** saying y have you put such a big one on then covered it with the bumper!!! i tried to explain that its all part of the VAG modding scene and its big for a good reason, but they just kept saying that surely it must not get good airflow when some of it is covered by the bumper.
    is there anything to what they are saying?? or are they just not clued up on us VAG monsters?? lol
    am i worrying for nothing?? cheers guys!

    Obviously it would work better if you could get the whole surface area of the FMIC to see air but its not a major headache...

    Some 'scenes' is all about having the FMIC on display like a grinning cheshire cat but Audi's are subtle (IMO) and so the cleaner hidden look is acceptable (again IMO)

    Personal preference tbh, if building a track car or something you are gonna use for some form of motor sport then yeah, get as much air as poss to it but for the most part it will still work well... sod um

    Bills race car has holes in the bumper and I think Prawn is planning similar... personal taste and subjective use...
