    S4 O/S inner wing lining

    I heard the O/S wheel arch lining on the S4 is vented to provide airflow to the airbox. It's priced up on VAGCAT at 14 EURO. Can anybody confirm? Looks like a nice cheap upgrade if so.

    There, if you can see it. Same part number. It's actually 17 EURO.

    Its to allow air to flow thru the IC directly out of the vents, and its around 20 iirc

    I agree, it's to let the air go through the ICs and straight back out, the air box is fed from the front, behind the grill, and sealed everywhere else to only allow cold air in, so wouldn't really benefit I'd have thought.
