    S3 Engine Bay

    Hi,

    I have taken the engine cover off my S3 due to getting an induction kit fitted.

    Can anyone suggest what I can do to make the engine look good??

    Thanks

    Re: S3 Engine Bay

    3 main options here mate:

    1. Leave it as is (bonnets closed anyway!)
    2. Cut down the engine cover to fit
    3. Get a 3rd party engine cover such as Neuspeed, can be pricey though.
    S3 8P2 Ice Silver, RNS-E, Bluetooth, iPod connection, Adaptive xenons, black styling pack, sunroof, privacy glass
    Mods since owned: Milltek Resonated TBE, Neuspeed P-Flo, Loba HPFP, Sachs Clutch with Loba SMF, Unicorn Motor Developments custom remap, brakes + suspension upgrades, LEDs internal and external, more interior kit
