    Wasn't sure what colour to do this, all i can say is I tried! lol, not sure weather to keep or get a carbon cover, at least the carbon cover wont have ''5v'' on it, i wished it just said '20v' like most of the vw golf's etc-

    After painting the cover White/ red/ blue, not liking it, then painting it all blue, it still looks crap in the engine bay, so i decided to get a plain Forge carbon cover soon & maybe put an Audi badge on top

    If you plan to do much more, you might want to get rid of the engine cover all together.

    The AGU is a nice simple lump without all the ancillary crap of the later cars, so looks quite smart with the inlet manifold and rocker cover just painted up

    Could save a load on a carbon engine cover! and spend it on a set of porsche oil / water caps instead!

    Replacing them with facelift lights is what most do to freshen up the look. It doesn't require any modifications apart from getting different bulbs for the blinker. There are probably some good aftermarket ones, but most seem very dodgy visually and give the good ol' ricer look imo.
