i see that acura is doing this on a few concepts and if im not mistaken other car companies are starting to do those plastic panels over the engine bay as well. i dont read up much on acura besides the old days and the nsx developments and delays and such. but those plastic dressup/covers look VERY inconvenient if u ask me. i wouldnt really like those things at all. now i know u can probably take them off...so no problem there but idk i just dont understand why companies are doing this now. wont it get hotter under there more as well too? just from a performance perspective this doesnt seem to innovative. luxury wise. its excellent.
