Looks great with the red BavAuto coils underneath, IMHO.

I like the aesthetics! even if there's no cooling benefit. Easy mod too!

(Noob question) Does the cover do anything in terms of preventing or minimizing water reaching the coils when driven in the rain?

Ive been driving coverless through florida's rainy season with no issues. The rubber around the coils provides a tight seal + the hood keeps the water out
