    Has anyone fitted one of these and do you have any pics, I'd like to tidy up the engine bay as I have an Evoms fitted, prices, outlets ?

    I've done a few searches but cant find any pics fitted to an S3.

    Cheers all

    Ignore the insert. You fit the one from your own engine cover.

    Bloody hell - £130 for an engine cover???

    The dealer I bought my car from covered mine in a disgusting "oh lets have a shiney engine cover" oil stuff - he must have thought it would make it look more presentable!

    In truth, it dissolved the paint off the 2.0TFSI lol so had to rub it off!

    The "detailer/valter" in that place is shocking and my car was covered in polish and trim was stained!!

    All sorted now though :)
