    @paul, if you go the header bar click on forums go down to Exterior styling scroll down to Bonnet vents and have a read.

    That would be my preferred option, not keen on a colour contrast or carbon fibre. For me the colour coded ones look classier. My only worry is the air filter taking in rainwater which isn’t good. So positioning would be key.

    Has the best louves by a country mile 👍

    Two points really security – a scrout can’t yank them out and plenty of them their louves to pull out all that hot air so a win win for me 👍

    Mountune Venus are positioned where the engine compartment generates the most heat

    Mountune position where theirs the most heat ??

    So why aren’t they positioned above the turbo at the back middle of the bonnet. It must get the hottest as that’s the only part that glows translucent orange on mine.

    I really can’t see the air filter on one side and the expansion bottle on the other generating that much heat 😂😂😂😂😂
