    Default cam and spark plugs logo differences.

    I noticed a silly difference regarding the cams cover and the spark plugs cover on Q4 engines.

    One seet up is with 'Alfa Romeo' logo on the cam cover and the 'Turbo 16V.' on the spark plugs cover.
    The other is with 'Alfa Romeo' logo on the spark plugs cover and the 'Turbo 16V.' logo on the inlet plenum.
    And a third one with just the 'Alfa Romeo' logo on the spark plugs cover.

    Is this related to the Q4 series {nb - wb} or is it just a coincidence?

    God knows why they felt the need to change it 3 times?!

    So, to work out a trend:

    You have too much spare time, when you have time too notice such things!

    But nice observation, by the way!

    It?s not a matter of time, when you like something so much... you pay attention to every detail and you have half of the brain full of info and images on the subject.

    It was AlfaJack's phrase "Interesting mod. I do like my spark plug cover though and I guess that would have to go to make space.." that make me notice this difference.

    From the other hand, in the past I have not had the time to learn this object {that curries my family too} and ... I do love Alfa's. It's an obsession!!!

    This was once discussed.
    Different series have different intake/spark covers.
