    Bonnet Raisers/Spacers.

    As above. Are they a pointless mod or do they actually work i.e let hot air out of the bay?

    Anyone have them or have any experience with them?

    i have a few mates with them, one on a mk4 and one on a mk5.

    Both have it for asthetics but the look doesnt really appeal to me.

    Look stupid to me, and from what people have posted on here they don't do much good either. Not sure whats factual and what is pub talk though.

    I only know of a couple of people with this modification.....

    I personally think it looks quite good on some cars but don't how effective it really is

    If its got pistons or tits, its gonna be expensive!!

    I doubt it is of much help, it doesn't really do much unless I'm missing something?

    Airflow under the bonnet is a complex thing, if I'm right, what you might be looking to do it cool the inlet manifold area down as this can get rather hot and we hopefully all know hot air is bad on the inlet side of things

    This is what I mean, I do like the look but not sure if its worth doing/will it make any difference?

    I reckon it does, only done a few miles with my bonnet like this.

    I have no oil catch tank until next week and under my bonnet is fumey as you like, when I drove it I could see all the smoke coming out. It was suggested to me by a mate with a celica gt four with this done, which came with a million bonnet vents as standard anyway. He tested it on a RR (theres a vid on youtube somewhere) and it looks to make a big difference.

    You will also need to remove the weather seal strip on the back on the bay also. Mine is raised quite a lot.
