Looks very smart Tim, but why do almost all 8 owners leave the air silencer off?

I understand most of the early cars were not fitted with one, it needs a cut out area in the adjacent wing. I have 3d printed a trumpet and that cuts out the hiss, but does nothing for filtration, but then they were designed like that!

Wow that turned out very nicely, I may have to pick your brains when I get stuck with my saloon (see other thread), thanks for the update.
