We have choices of standard plastic, red highlighted plastic and CF.
At the factory I saw the perfect cover, none. The Exige S V6 is using our engine & supercharger but instead of a cover the SC is painted black and has a cast aluminum plate (also black) screwed on to it with Lotus performance in raised letters. I told them I want that built into my car but was told no can’t do that engine angle is different, blah, blah, blah. Even the GTE where they tried to save hundreds of pounds has the Evora cover but in CF, go figure. While it could be for air flow management I think its just because they don’t want to clean up the wires and hoses.
Now I at least answered whether to spend $1500 on CF engine cover. I will paint the SC with some black thermal dispersant ceramic paint and wait to find the PN for that cast plate.
