    I'm not aware of any being made for the 2.2, and TBH there ain't much point as most of the hoses are out of sight under the engine cover.

    what does the 2.2 look like under the playschool engine cover??

    does it look like a real engine 'a la 2.0' ??

    Then why would you not remove the plastic cover and have a nice colour coded rocker cover etc... ??

    why not leave it on?

    It's easily the best looking standard engine bay on a G, so why try to gild a lilly
