    Heat Shield

    On a coupe turbo i have a silver one which is rusty, now ive seen a 888 and a silver coupe with a black one. Are these a genuine vauxhall part?

    Don't think its a genuine part, reckon its been painted by the owner.

    My coupe that would have been the same year as the 888's were made had a black one as standard. I've sinice polished it up

    OE black ones tend to loose their paint after a while due to the heat, so if you get a black one that needs tidying be sure to use VHT paint - available from Halfords and the like.
