Do you guys take the cover off from under the scoop/vents for most of the year? I live in Chicago and it does rain and snow and all that good stuff, and the side vents are right over the battery/intake. For those of you that live in a similar climate.... did you notice any problems with leaving the vents open? I will close all vents for the winter, but the rest of the year I was thinking of leaving them open, just want to hear some other opinions..

I bought mine in December and removed them in January (was in Indiana with a foot of snow)... I'll be leaving them off 100% of the time. It won't cause any problems. :)

God, this has been gone over in like 35 different threads. Your car will be fine. I left my old 98 RS outside with no hood on it at all for 3 weeks last summer (it rains everyday here) and didnt move it once, she still worked just fine.

I have mine off year round and that's in Vermont and Upstate NY. My engine bay fills with snow sometimes, but it hasn't actually caused any problems (I was moslty worried about belts getting wet and slipping). As far as I can tell, there is no advantage at all to leaving the covers on.
