    Z18XE Carbon Fibre Engine Cover

    Right am after one of these for my 1.8 corsa which has the same engine as the astra, a guy off corsasport & corsa-c.co.uk has had it done but wont tell any1 where he got it done. Any ideas where to get one or to get a real one made up.

    Also i know there is this one http://reverie.ltd.uk/shop/products.php?p=f47f6c but imo think it looks shit with the writing on and would prefer it plain like the two above images

    He's pulling yer plonker mate, I've spoken to this guy and I've got the second pic on my PC as we speak, had it for a long while now. The camcover is carbon dipped, it's not made of carbon, it looks the part though and I know exactly where to get it done.

    Dave Coupe gets his done by Halfords, I get mine done in Germany. You notice he doesn't show pics of the underside of the cases? I've seen a genuine carbon cam cover on E-Bay and I missed out on it, however real carbon is slightly less shiney than carbon dipping.

    I could be totally wrong on this but I don't think so.

    That's the 3rd link Rusty, Reverie made it but it's expensive.

    Can someone gen me up on this? Surely that isn't the vinyl carbon fibre effect stuff?

    It looks real. Is it cheap to do at Halfords? Could they do an entire centre console?
