  • Anyone do a replacement bonnet intake?

    Day 2 of ownership and probably a silly question but .....

    Does anyone know if someone makes a replacement/working bonnet intake? I have the carbon pack and it would be great if there was something in carbon.

    Cheers,

    Yorkie

      Those are the focus rs ones in carbon fibre, not too cheap though

          Yeah I'm looking for a (working) direct replacement in carbon. If they don't do one I might see if I can get one made.

            I genuinely have no idea why anyone with a 'Vauxhall' would slap some 'Ford' bits on the bonnet at all. But hey ho. That white one in the first link looked good apart from the terrible bonnet vents !!

            But a working intake scoop on the E would be a good idea.

              I would not want to replace if the fake bonnet vent, just image all the crap / dirt you are going to get in the engine bay

                Ahh yeah i get you, just saw the one in the link and assumed you wanted the rs style vents. They aren't to my liking either. I know elite performance on facebook seem to be making a lot of carbon bits for vxrs. Might be worth dropping them a message 👍

                  You could get some GTE/GSI vents off an early Astra and have them welded in - proper VX and functional. Seem to be a bit rare nowadays though.

                    Cheers that is really useful. I was thinking carbon with a black mesh to stop stuff getting ingested.
