Wat a beautifull day it was, I must confess, I did hear it`s engine running, just incredible!!
Now for the vent holes in the hood;
The one on the right is non functional, just for cosmetic reasons. The one on the left is used to suck extra air into the engine. This had to be done because at high RPM there wasn`t enough air pressure available. At 8400RPM the engine needs 400 liter air/minute.
I also asked about the power dome; Yes it is becouse off the airbox acording to BMW people.

thank you for the post Romo... I needed the news from the long bore of no news up here lol
