    Should i paint my engine bay covers the same colour as my interior trim?! I know a few people have actually covered them in the leather or alcantara but i want to be able to just leave them on all the time and this is a very costly option so that choice is out the question! Also, i could paint them body coloured but that wouldn't stand out as much! Pictures of the car and trim below and poll above!

    PS. The engine bay is polished and chromed so think about that when making your choice!

    Yeah red or blue with matching hoses, that'll look sweet.

    All my hoses are black so i don't think that the red or blue covers would really go.

    I reckon you should spray a union jack onto your engine cover. :p

    Black all the way and if you want to paint a flag either go with the st. george's cross or the union flag as a 'union jack' is only called that when flown at sea. Do some thing in the box that say's 20v turbo with the audi logo.

    Carbon cover would have looked good but painted would look cool.
