New core V6 no engine cover?

Just picked up my core V6 a few days ago, popped the bonnet and no engine cover? Rang the dealer and asked why no engine cover and the response was core's don't come with one.. Anyone else have a core V6 without engine cover? Or have I been had?



  • My Core V6 delivered in Early October. No engine Cover either.

    When they say core. They mean core!!

  • Thanks for the info Beefa, mine's a November delivery so similar timeline.

    mine didnt come with one either, it obviously has the pins where one could go. i took it to the dealer and they quoted me upwards of $600 if i wanted it....

    Even my 4 cylinder has the pins , was going to pinch the cover of wifeys Passat

    My opinion for all that it is worth is that it would make an engine run hotter by no allowing a free air movement

    Try a wreckers you might get a cover of a touareg
