jayd540 is an unknown quantity at this point

Is the engine dust cover really necessary or is it better without it because of better heat dispersion and cooling of the engine? I believe its better without but I just wanted to hear some other opinions.

It looks good especially when it is clean!!
I am not so sure if it makes a difference in overheating/cooling issues.....in fact it may shield a lot of vital parts under it from so many elements....In short?
I trust BMW engineering...my 2 cents.

Engine cover.

Besides cosmetic it has the roll of keeping water out of the deep engine cavities and shorting out the firing of your cylinders.Try shampooing the engine bay with the cover off and attempt to start your car. I have the same headache on my 74 alfa.
