1999-04 Mustang Cowl Vent Cover, 2-Piece Reproduction at LRS - Free Shipping!

if it's not a show car and you just want a replacement and want to save some money get the 2 piece. if you are particular about your car get the OEM cover, the fit is better than the 2 piece.
Tony, I am impressed with your honesty.

I bought the two piece.... mine came from ebay so I don't know if it's the same piece or even the same caliber part that LRS sells but I will tell you it's a huge piece of ****. The fit is awful, the finish is about %50 of OEM.... but the fit is the problem. I have a zip tie holing it together at the seam. Looks like absolute horse ****. Waste of my money. OEM is very expensive and very over priced.... buy it. You won't be disappointed. If you get one out of the junkyard it's going to be a piece of **** as well.... they're all dried out and cracked if they're more than a few years old.

yea with the cost of the OEM cover the 2 piece is a good option for someone who just wants a less expensive replacement and doesn't care too much about the fit and finish and for a daily driver/beater i wouldn't hesitate to use it. that being said i think for most people here, the OEM cover is the way to go.

Again, I commend you for your honesty. Nice to see someone who sells parts giving honest answers and not blowing BS. Reps given.

hmm the carbon fiber one seems to be same price/few bucks cheaper than the OEM one, and from the svtperformance forums a big hit. Might have to go that route.

edit: heh anyone buy a carbon fiber one?
