Engine cover color choice

Recommended Posts

gregtay

When building up a boat using the dealer tool we saw an option for “engine cover color” or something like that, we didn’t take the time to see if you could choose a color (maybe an option for the new M5/M6 motors?) Anyone know what (if anything) this is?

It’s most likely the plastic cover on top. The ones I’ve seen are black and look fine imo. I don’t really care what color it is, engine performance is all I care about lol.

Red would be good for at least 10 HP.  I'd get red if available.

At least 10HP! Well it would be fun to customize it. Not that I really look at the motor all that much. I am surprised Malibu didn’t make the M5/M6 plastic engine cover a little more exciting considering the money they put into development.

I think its a clean classy look. And I think they were more worried about getting the facility built/running, development and testing done, and the overall design of the new engine package.

Not that I care what color the engine cover is, but it didn't come up as an option when we ordered the M5.

I have to agree the engine covers on the new engines looks boring , when we ordered our boat with the M6di we had no option on the engine cover .  I am thinking of getting it Hydro dipped with a fancy graphic .

Yep, thinking about doing something with mine as well.. just for fun. I did see the option for a engine cover color choice in the Malibu configurator.. but maybe had we clicked on it the options would have been black and black.

I was told it was going to be an option pretty soon when I ordered back in Early December.  I think maybe they told me the engine itself would be painted.  

The PCM motor has LED lights in the cover and it looks sort of like a modernized version of Knight Rider.  It definitely makes the testosterone pump more than the plain Malibu engine.  I suspect now that it can be painted, it will look cooler.

If anyone gets any additional info on the option to pick a paint color please let me know. I will also check with me dealer to see if they know anything.

Eventually it will be an option to customize the engine colors, but we don't know yet when that will be available. Haven't heard anything about it for 2019 for sure, so I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't happen until at least 2020.
