Hi all,
Pictures of homemade fender vents attached.  Really, I can't see the harm in 
helping to remove some heat from under the hood.  I have no problem with my 
master cylinder (knock on wood), but pretty near every plastic and rubber 
piece under the hood could do with a little less heat in there.  As Taka 
said, a vent over the passenger side of the engine compartment would be 
nice, and I looked into putting some vents - like M3's have - in the 
fenders, but the fender vent was the best "no money" alternative I came up 
Pictures at links:
Vents made with an exacto knife, some needle nose pliers and a heat gun. 
Open end of vents point down, and I'll be the first person to post if I 
encounter any problems with the setup.
