    Default Am I breathing Right......

    Whilst washing the cars today (with UKAnalyst) I noticed something strange about my car...

    Dave has got a Facelift 3.0 CDTi V6 and I have a Facelift 1.9 CDTi....

    His front 'V' Grill mesh doesnt have anything behind it... and you can see the radiator, if you look through the grill mesh...

    Mine on the other hand is blocked off, by a plastic cover, so you can see anything... its just blocked off....??

    What does that mean... is my car getting the best airflow... and why would it be completely blocked ??

    Best op temp I think, Daves probably needs the extra cooling.

    Cheaper to fit one type of rad and a bit of plastic on the 1.9s than 2 types of rads I would have thought?

    I have enquired about this Steve, you may find it would make the 1.9 run too cool if you took it out.
