Wouldn't be surprised it's NLA - custom molded plastic body pieces are usually the first items to stop production when a model gets old enough - last time these cars were produced was 16 years ago... :-(

Well, 11-12 years if you count Skoda Superb and VW-China's Lingyu. But who's counting? 😜

I was too late to buy that one in the ebay listing. I am sure another one will crop up again, used or new.

In the meantime, would it be sufficient to drive without it, if I fashioned a cover for the cabin air filter?

Now wondering if the earlier versions of that cowl will fit.

Right now, I have the cabin air filter shielded from rain with aluminum foil.

There are 2 of them currently active on eBay.

Sub 100 for each. The same part for a 99 to 2004 land rover is 400

The -C version appears to have an additional feature added to the center of the back. Having never actually looked at that area of a b5 I don't know what it is for. It may be able to be removed for use on the b5.5. I'm in the same boat now. I ordered one the day before I posted the link above, but my order was cancelled since they were out of stock. I'm also having trouble finding a decent used one.

I have a couple of good used ones at my garage, shipping might be expensive given the size though.
