I have thought of a way around this. As the FL bonnet is super light anyway I could buy all the parts to gave to vent fitted to my bonnet. I think it looks good it body colour:

Have a look here, Looks like a cut normal bonnet to me.

Well I have given up trying to source an LMS vent for 2 reasons. Firstly no one will sell one to me lol and secondly having seen one up close they are not the greatest fit being a unit sealed into a cut out. Nowhere near as good as standard RS3 !fittings.

So the plan is to get a fabrication specialist to alter my bonnet. I still have a tiny dent on my door that cannot be paint-less dent removed, so it makes sense to get it done at the same time. This is what I’m looking at which is a carbon bonnet. If an aluminium specialist welder can do this I’m sure I can get a perfect paint match and won’t have the hassle of trying to get a good surface on carbon. Besides my bonnet is a perfect fit as it is. I’m not fussed about altering a decent bonnet because if done right I think it will look pretty oem compared to a lot of cut out vents on the market. Also I’ve gone a bit far to really care now.

I have no idea why this didn’t work because I added the picture in the Sam way as usual and it’s a small file.

I hoped to get an oem style vent in my FL bonnet but sadly the welder said it can’t be done due to the metal being so thin.
