Why doesn't my car have this pipe, and what is it? (obviously some kind of air feed)




Thanks

"Noise" pipe on US-spec cars... makes the cabin a bit noisier. Eurojet do a shiny shiny replacement.

So, the the noise pipe being fitted increases cabin noise? Could this be a worthwhile mod for those who like hearing more of the engine inside the cabin...?

It's a PITA to do IIRC. Need to take out the windscreen wiper motors and stuff.
