Does anyone know if you can wrap the silver engine vents on the engine cover in black to given a base Spyder the "Black Optics" looks for those silver engine vents (which I believe comes standard on all Plus/Performance models)? Or does it need to be painted or perhaps replaced with the OEM engine cover due to the heat?

I am guessing perhaps wrapping it will work but I wasn't sure due to the heat? All I know is that one of the things I do NOT like on Audi RS models and the R8 is all of the silver (ie. windshield frame, engine vents, etc) that looks MUCH better in a black look that is found via the Black Optics package...

Thanks!
Jeremy

I'm getting mine painted today. I've chosen to use the same Titanium grey used on the rotor rims to match. I did the windshield and mirror caps in Titanium already.. I'll post pics once the vent covers are done. I also blacked out the marker lights and tail lights at the same time. New black grill is coming..
