Firstly i'd like to say its been an honour for having the opportunity to run COTM passed on from 'josh494949'. Right lets make it simple this month as im doing it for the first time.


We've had so many 'bumpers', 'r32 fronts' and 'wheel' competitions 


This month is going to be quite the 'unsual' as 'BEST MODIFIED ENGINE BAY WINS' 


Whether its only a 'cone filter' or a 'blow off valve', post YOUR ENGINE bay pics....


BUT!! It isn't that simple


Each engine bay which has a non-standard part e.g. CAI(cold air induction), Turbo Upgrade, Dump Valves ETC counts as a point each


So if i had a 1.8T Engine, i would recieve 1 point for each 'mod' such as 1 for a dump valve, 1 for a uprated FMIC, 1 for a uprated breathing system(Induction) etc.


Pictures will be limited to a number of 2 and before anyone asks REMAPS DO NOT COUNT! - due to being visually un-noticeable


Right so thats it lads, you have 7 days from now to submit the pictures and then 7 days for the 'voting system'


Please Post Pictures ASAP To Avoid Disappointment. The Pictures must be submitted before Saturday 10th July 2010 at 14.30 


Apologies also if i've done it in a different way as this is my first time and hope to improve by each month

Wat the hell, i'll get the ball rolling...



Resprayed cover (+1), Recovered nameplate (+1), Callout it out on the quattro drivers (+1), Boost Gauge piping (+1)....


Although thats me being cheeky, i'll settle for 2 points.

 Will get some pics up of mine soon once my mate sends them to me. Not too clean at the moment but should still score high enough on the points hopefully. Carbon canister removed, washer bottle removed, 72mm throttle body and adaptor plate, air con removed, pipercross cone filter, front mount intercooler, forge dump valve, N75j valve, k04 turbo (don't know if that counts) 1.9 re-bore (again don't know if that counts),


As I said I will get pics soon as I can.

Come on Patch, show us your engine bay. It doesnt have to be spotless, just the number of modifications is what counts [:D]

Wow - I may have a shot at this one, even up against the OEM people!  [<:o)]



K&N Cone Filter, Painted Engine Covers, Painted Bottle Tops (I'm counting that separately as others have included upgraded bottle tops separately to engine covers, but please take one point off if not considered a separate item),  Bailey DV, Red DV Pipework, Blue Forge TIP (to later be replaced with a red item).  6 items.  [H]
