  • Bonnet vents

    I've noticed people putting vents in their bonnets, the only ones i like are the RS ones they look very nice. I was thinking about putting these on my red VXR but painting them black to go with my red and black theme but what about the water when rains? Also not sure where abouts on the bonnet would look best

      Looking at the vents on ebay, do these have the screws etc with them? Some are fake for like £10 and the real ones are around £50 - 150 is there any difference in them?

        I don't know much about them mate, But I reckon you should get the better ones just to be on the safe side if you get me?

          Have a look at this thread mate. This should give you idea of what it will look like mate.

                Are they the fake ones or the real £200 ones? Is there any difference, does it have any clips/screws with it? What about water getting into the engine bay?

                        when your driving the heat builds up at the back of the engine bay as the cooler air pushes through the intercooler and over the turbo

                            dont you also have to watch where you place these as the rain gets in and could damage certain parts if they are not placed correctly?
