    20 FSI Engine Cover

    Gents - Should the 20 FSi have a full engine cover?

    mate of mine picks one up at the weekend but when we viewed it it looked like this:


    is there a bit missing?

    Car is a 53 Plate

    Cheers
    Paul

    PS - I drove it and thought the 2.0 FSI it was very good.

    Nope.

    Looks exactly like mine does, and every other 2.0 fsi I viewed before buying mine. All were 53 and 04 plates.

    I think mines got an extra bit of plastic covering the spark plugs. I could be wrong (usually am).

    I think I know the answer to why these diesel guys slag off petrol.....

    It's similar to when a woman sees another woman who is better looking than her.... and then starts to b*tch about her.....
    "yeah but she's got fake boobs/hair/eyelashes/etc".

    Must admit I was a bit sceptical of the FSI minus the `T` but FWIW I thought it was very good!

    The good thing is... when they do come to ruin the fun we'll be able to prepare some comebacks in advance.... as we'll hear them coming from miles away!!

    If there wasn't a 2.0 tfsi, then I imagine the fsi wouldnt get slated half as much as it does...
    It is a lovely engine, Quick, economical (for a petrol) and a smooth power delivery.
    Having said that a tfsi is definitely on the cards for my next motor
