    Please do not put bonnet vents on... they look gash and out of place on a Leon. The bonnet doesn't have the right lines to suit a vent.

    Do you have an induction kit? if so, do you have a heat shield fitted?

    If not, then you could run a dedicated cold feed into the airbox, from under the arch perhaps.

    Less heat under there than in the engine bay.

    You could remove the bumper and do some cutting on the rear of it to fit an intake on the rear of the fog lighting surround, and feed it up to the filter.
