Found this on alfaworkshop.

In the US we don't get this black cover over the coolant tank.

Wondering if the Euro version does? Is this for a different car? Can I buy just the black cover part?

We don’t get the black cover on the coolant tank in Oz too, at least not on the 4Cs I’ve seen. No idea if it can be purchased as a stand alone item. What’s its function?

Just to cover the ugly yellowing coolant tank that is right there in your face.

I was looking for just a spare tank to try and make a cover out of CF or Fiberglass. Found that picture and figured matching black plastic to the engine cover would look ok or I could paint or skin with CF over it. Easier to start with a plastic cover then scratch.

Saw that as well. Would prefer a removable cover.

Ironically, my CF fabricator in Maryland, SS Designs, has had a spare coolant tank to make a CF cover since 2016. LOL.

He was gonna do it for a template for me for free but being free, his other projects including SEMA cars takes priority. I should let him know there is now more of a slight demand to get him rolling again.....lol.

So the cover by itself may not be available?

It's a "new" thing, my friend with a Euro MY2018 (late 2018) Coupe has that shroud, and the Euro 4C Spider Italia also brings it.
