I think it will look good when it is colour coded and the badge is removed anyway. I never had a cold air feed to the filter before this vent and now i feel such a difference :slayer:

oi you only giving my opinion :p you need pics of when its colour coded and without the badge and it will look alot different.

Yeah i know i was only messin with you ;)
I can't wait to get rid of that badge and get it colour coded, just having a bit of a go on photoshop to see how its gonna look. BINNY off puntosports fitted it for me,he fitted his one today aswell but his vent came in black to match his car, doh! :(

Personally I like it, I was expecting to hate it from the thread title but after seeing it and hearing the plans for debading I am a fan.

Good work Dazz (y)

Oh don't say that! I really try and make my car mods as subtle as possible but i had to do this as its the best way to get cold air to the filter.:eek:

Thanks, i was thinking about spraying it black to match the lines on the bumper but my mate reckons definately colour code it, maybe i should start a poll :rolleyes: The badge is definately getting removed and im going to flush the vent into the bonnet (y)
I made a template of the vent out of cardboard then taped it where i wanted it, then i drilled loads of small holes to make the hole, popped it in then glued it with some araldite, jobs a goodun!

That looks tight man,a very stylish way to get a cold air feed!suits the car real nice.I think spraying it black would suit best,or maybe colour code it but put black wire mesh inside it.Would go with the hints of black all round your car.
