Engine cover, styrafoam

Sorry in advance if this question has another thread, but I couldn't find anything via the search function. I recently purchased an '07 MCS, and to my dismay the engine didn't have the attractive plastic cover with the mini insignia on it, I believe the cover is there for heat/sound purposes as well. the MINI dealer said "the earlier versions didn't come with the cover" but I see the mounting holes on the top of the engine...just wondering if anyone knows where I can pick one up?

thanks for any assistance
steven

Seems there are two different part numbers for the Emblem:
RealOEM - R56 Cooper S Cylinder Head Cover
Ask your dealer for the part number. Compare dealer pricing versus Pelican Parts.

The picture you posted looks like the cover for a Cooper ...
RealOEM - R56 Cooper Cylinder Head Cover
The two Emblem part numbers are still the same.

Just wondering, but could you take a picture of what the engine looks like under the cover? I love BMW and MINI, but the plastic engine covers always bugged me, especially on cars like the BMW M5, where they really should be showing off the engine, not some flimsy piece of plastic.

sure, at work right now, but will try to shoot it tonight....I think it looks better with this piece installed, and i am scared my plastic scoop may melt due to the heat on long trips, the foam underside(that is missing off the piece in the picture) is supposed to absorb a lot of the heat, as well as some of the sound I think, at least sound was a motivation on a similar piece on my my fathers Jetta TDI.

glad you wanted pictures because I need to look at the mounting assembly, the cover I have does not mate perfectly to the holes you can see in the pics!

Thanks so much for the images! I am intrigued by them since they appear to look very similar to the engine bay of the 2011 model, only without the MINI logo.

I don't own a MINI, so I don't know how often they have redesigned the engine compartment, but here is an image of a preproduction 2011 MCS engine bay to compare.
