    As many of you know I now have gone stage 2+ which leaves the engine bay looking rather messy.

    No keen on the Evoms cover at all so im going to go about cutting up a oem cover. Been searching and it looks like I can use either:

    S3/Cupra cover
    FSI cover

    Was bidding on one but internet died in the last 10 min so missed it, very angry as it only went for £50! There is a couple on ebay at the moment but they are priced at £150 BIN.

    So two things:

    Which parts need cutting too make it fit? Airbox by the looks?

    Anyone want to sell me there cover?

    Mattandrew has cut his engine cover to fit around his intake - he did a thread on it!

    You just have to cut the top and right hand side of the intake, smooth it down and make it look presentable!

    Luckily enough for me, when my coilpack went, the RAC man broke my engine cover :) so I got a brand new one from them including MAF and air filter so I will be using the broken one once I go for the intake :)

    Found the thread on it last night. Dont have a angle grinder so it will be a long job!

    Still annoyed that I missed the cupra cover on ebay. If anyone sees one for a good price please let me know!

    TT-S / TTRS engine covers also fit.

    Usually Cupra ones go on the bay used for about £35, and the badges on the top can be swapped over.

    Will the engine cover just hold heat in??

    TTRS doesn't have an engine cover and the TTS engine cover may fit but someone needs to confirm that. Might ask Audi for the price of the TTS cover :blink:

    I'm pretty sure it's been conformed that the TTS cover doesnt fit as it has different attachment points. Not sure it's been fully looked into modding / adding the correct attachment points as i believe they're seperate pieces?.

    you should try fitting a 2007 A4 engine cover you do need to order different brackets thou, but they bold right up to stock OEM engine location or try the TTS cover
