Bought this as I needed a new cowl, and the ones available on ebay were rubbish, or broken. I bought it directly from the showroom and was a little apprehensive about the finish. Its an exact replacement but its been sprayed in some sort of paint to give a matt grey finish.
I left the thing in the garage because I thought it wouldn't look too good, but thought, well, I'd better fit it. Simple replacement, but does look a little out of place at first. Having lived with it for 2 weeks now, I actually prefer the new matt cowl. You dont get any annoying glare off it in the windscreen , and it does grow on you..
I do suspect the finish isnt going to be too hardwearing though.. Overall, its going to be one of those things you either love or hate. I do like the look, but obviously some dont. Give it a week or too, before you decide.
