So I gave my sportwagen some love yesterday in the form of an oil change, air filter replacement and new headlights. I was quite surprised to find this level of detail in the plastic baffle under the front end.
The amount of acoustic baffling and detail put into that is nutso! I can’t think of a better example of German over-engineering than to take something most automakers just use a sheet of plastic with a mat of fiberglass and spend hundreds of engineering hours, testing and tooling on to make fractionally better.
Aso the damn thing was held on by two different size torque bolts and like 10 bolts altogether. It is not going back on the car.
