    Default Air intake is from the wheel arch?!

    I may sound like a noob/c**k!

    I've just been tinkering under my hood and have just realised my stock air intake is coming from the wheel arch?! What's the reason for this?

    I wondered the exact same thing. It seems to go to the back of it aswell.

    Seems bizarre! I thought for a second maybe the front N/S fins on the bumper might be real and for its intake but no, not that cool.

    What if you hit a really big puddle

    I removed my airbox for an aftermarket one but recently refitted it, its a nightmare getting the platic air feed pipe into the flexi rubber thing in the wheel arch.

    I've literally just taken it all off for a wash and put it back on but I've assumed since that piece locks into the airbox and the airbox is fixed into its holing points that the pipe has to be in the right place behind the wheel arch? I had a feel and just felt like foam abit like how the heater vents connect inside the car if ygm, I hope that's the case anyway hahaa
