Default Where to buy Motorsound airbox cover?

Hey all, I'm thinking of selling my Fabspeed cup intake, and stock intake and replacing them with the Porsche Motorsound airbox cover. Does anyone know where to get these at the best price? Seller has to ship to Canada.

Thanks.

There was a thread recently about converting your standard airbox to a Motorsound by drilling the appropriate holes. Of course, the chrome trim ring won't be there but so what? Will be doing said mod to my box after this weekend's trip.

Not sure I'd want to butcher my stock airbox. I'd rather pass it along to someone else, and snag the motorsound unit... I kinda dig the chrome trim bling If all else fails, I'll just keep the Fabspeed unit on.

I just bought mine from Sunset. Put it on yesterday but have yet to fire up the car since I'm waiting for the control arm to come in. I think it was $130 +shipping via DHL.

$130 is not bad at all. I could likely recoup that selling the Fabspeed and stock deal... any takers? Ha, ha.

I just found a used stock on eBay and drilled it. There were even little circles on the inside showing where to drill on the one I bought.

An OEM stock, or Motorsound? I already have a stock cover, and a Fabspeed unit. If it's the Motorsound one, I'll take it.

Is the metal really just for looks? I figured it was for acoustics. :-)

"Cromed" plastic, not metal. Solely bling.
