Did the ED XR's have bonnet vents or am I deluded? I thought they did but cant find any proof. The reason I'm asking is because I have a filthy dent where a vent would sit and this would help keep my under bonnet temps down (I would like to keep it subtle though). Appreciate any help.

Hmm. I seem to remember them as having them (squarish like the cosworth ones) but Im obviously mistaken.

the bonnet vents that are squarish are the eb gt ones, ed's didnt have any, but who said that was stopping you from putting some on, might as well if there is a dint there, kill two birds with one stone, no dint and cooler engine bay :D

Just confirming - no vents on EDXR. First XR to receive bonet vents was EFXR. The last being ELXR :)
