    I am having my ITG fitted next weekend, and am looking for a decent s/h engince cover at a sensible price to cut up to fit. If anyone has one they are willing to part with for SENSIBLE money, then please please let me know!

    Much appreciated. :cool:

    I have a broken one here which came off my car when the RAC went to change my coilpacks. They bought me a brand new one. The damage is where you would be cutting away for the ITG so I was going to keep it. However, if you are interested, I can put up some pics and think up a price for you.

    Slight change to my request now as I have removed my engone conver and can see that a desk monkey with some kind of cutting device could make a total mess of this..........

    So with that in mind, does anyone have an engine cover that has already been cut for a CAI that they want to sell me!

    Or perhaps there is a thread somewhere that offers some basic instructions on what to cut and where??

    Any help gratefully accepted!

    There is a thread linked in the FAQs for cutting down an S3 engine cover.
