AC Schnitzer F13 scoops

Hope it's not overkill

Nothing wrong with how it looks.
Some are gonna have a problem with the symbolism.
Normally, a model with hood scoops is gonna be the more powerful of the model range. Like the M for BMW. The XKR for Jag. The AMG for Benz.
Putting hood scoops on the base level model 6 will rub some guys the wrong way unless you have performance mods. Do you?

Me, I don't care either way. It's your car. If you want to fantasize your car has more muscle, who am I to rain on your parade.

I like it. Hell, im interested in them myself.

AC Schnitzel has nothing to do with ///M division or AMG or XKR for that matter. They make aftermarket aesthetic parts that look good IMO. You don't need an ///M to dress your car up with an aftermarket body kit or whatever.

If you put an ///M badge on and labeled your car as something it isn't, then I understand, but AC is perfectly fine.

Please, like the ///M cars and their muscle really need those hood scoops for functionality anyway lol.

Thanks all. If I had the M, I would not even bother with the AC Schnitzer kit to begin with. AC Schnitzer has come a very long way and carry a lot of history in racing.

Hood scoops are different from a body kit. Hood scoops usually mean big power and the need for extra air for the monster to breathe.
Since extra air can be good for any engine, I see no problem with the scoops.

Yes but those wouldn't be ram air scoops for intake air. Those are outlets for heat to escape the engine bay for cooling. Not really functional either way (big engine or not) unless you are constantly running at high RPM and high speeds, which any engine can do.

I'm so sorry man, but I'm gonna be honest - you should have kept her stock!
IMO you ruined a perfect car with pretty much every single mod...the wheels are OK at best.

(I did start with "sorry" so don't be offended...just my opinion of course)

Yikes, those look terrible! Sorry, since opinions are solicited, that is the only one I have to offer.

Chrome with center fins...all bad.

Bringing back year old threads eh? SAMLAMBO gets a new car just about once a year. I doubt he even has this anymore. That said, I can't imagine cutting into a hood to install these, but this guy loves his mods. You should have seen the wool floor mats in his 730
