Call me daft but I just could not resist buying the Porsche fuel cap. Waiting for it to arrive from design 911. See link below

I know it's £105 and it's only me that will see it but it will look good.

Tried to find a second hand one but I think it's a bit like finding rocking horse s##t. Once people have it they don't give it up.

I could probably keep it for length of time I have the car ( years I hope)and then still sell it for 75% of new cost

As its a genuine Porsche accessory am I right in saying that my OPC will have no problem with this re my Porsche warranty which I'm looking to extend in April or should I take it off the day it goes for the check?

Have the genuine Porsche cap myself - don't really think it is blingy - looks like it was meant to be there in the first place. Laughing

Does not affect the warranty in the slightest. thumbsup

Ah Im not the only crazy guy then.

Your right it's a pity we don't get it as standard.

I'm not into mods really but I think it will finish the car nice.

Thanks for the update on the warranty DRZ911 Thumb

Porsche are pretty cunning - had the "alloy" cap for my 997.2. Took it off when I got my 991 thinking it would fit straight on as it looked similar. Alas not! Sad

Ended up buying another "alloy" one for my 991 at £105, and got £72 for my old 997 one on Ebay. Just be careful to get one that fits your car. Very Happy

I have been tempted with his until I saw the price, the fact that it is plastic and that it doesn't even come with a tether. So essentially you either craft one, hold it whilst filling up or place it somewhere.

Still like the look of it though.... Dont know

In reality, the plastic looks very much like aluminium alloy.

Both genuine caps that I have bought have come with tethers which are identical to the original factory fit.

The problem is it doesn't feel very much like aluminium alloy.

And that's annoying at the price :

PS - mine came with tether too.

Great that you are pleased with the new cap. Very Happy

It's one of those small Porsche details that makes even the mundane task of filling up with petrol an absolute pleasure. Laughing Laughing
