    S3 Engine Cover

    Hi all,

    Anyone know of any decent (both in build quality & looks) engine covers that are sold for the S3 (8P) with CAI kits please?

    I found this from Neuspeed (incidentally thats my CAI) but its £200+ Jesus!

    http://www.neuspeed.com/680265-carbo...ine-cover.html

    If its that much cash just for cosmetic purposes then I'll probably just leave the engine bay as it is as it will probably be cooler without....

    TTS is best by far IMO - its OEM and you can remove the central plastic bits for real carbon, fake carbon or paint.

    Mike where did you get the heatshield for your Neuspeed filter? Looks very effective.
