Past few days i've been tinkering with the engine bay on the QS.

Polished the top of the manifold, and sprayed the rest of it.

Sprayed the charge pipe and polished the clamps.

Quite liking the black matt finish to the paint. :) I used Halfords high temp enamel spray paint.
Just need to give it a good clean now as there is dust everywhere from sanding the manifold.

Sorry about the iPhone picture quality.

I thought my TT QS was the only one with this poor wiring finish..... Do all engines have this bare wire syndrome?
Why does Audi think that this is a quality job or acceptable???

Any ideas on a quality fix?

My roadster is better finished but my qS is the same as the pic bigsyd sorted me with a nice cable sleave to over it

I actually thought this was a fault and had them look at it only to be told that that was normal, poor quality I would say
thanks Syd pm sent

in the post lads, all you have to do is cut to length, then with a sharp knife (be careful ) put a cut down the middle and ease over the original conduit, it will then lock onto it then push other end onto manifold bit of plastic, this will also lock onto, turn new conduit so cut is underneath and it then looks like one piece of conduit onto manifold,
