    R8 Oil Cap

    Not sure if this has been asked before but have had a quick search and couldnt find anything.....

    Is this a good deal? R8 OIL CAP VW GOLF BORA 20VT TURBO LEON CUPRA GTI A3 Q7 | eBay

    And if so has anyone fitted one, I presume it is a straight swap? Like the look of it and a nice cheap mod.

    Wow, that looks stunning (not just the cap, your whole engine bay!) Just ordered one! Thanks.

    Purely that! I think they look more than slightly better, a lot better.

    +1 on that. That's some good work, and a lot lighter than the original plastics I bet.

    I know there was a lengthy thread about the Mellow Yellow Peril Paullie but I cant be bothered trying to find it. Question is who did the carbon engine cover and how much. Im recalling something along the lines of RS5????? It is the Mutz Nutz!!!

    Hi Brodster, it's an 'off the shelf' Neuspeed engine cover in real CF. I bought it from Graeme at GNJ Motorsport (forum member). I was SO relieved to find that it fitted with my Forge Twintake CAI as I couldn't find a definitive answer on the net as to whether or not it would., ..but I was happy enough to be the guinea pig, lol. (The badges I added to it myself) xx

    Nom nom nom!!!!!!

    As much as I love the performance of my ITG intake it doesn't look pretty no matter how you dress it up. Forge stuff always looks stunning.

    I'd love the Neuspeed cover, but I'm not sure it would give me room to route my catch can hoses out to the side by the carbon canister.

    I think I'm going to have to *******ise an S3 one or do a TT-S conversion like Boydie.

    Does it have two front mounting point Paullie?

    Absolutely stunning. What a bay!

    Aww thank you Warren xx I think it will fit fine with the Forge Catch Can as the sides of the cover don't extend too far down laterally. Here's the side view to give you a better idea. It has 2 rear mounting points and it is screwed on at the front to a sensor of some sort, lol. You can see the screw in the first pic. It is in the half circular cut out to the right of the dipstick recess. xx

    Sometimes the R8 cap does not fit so you have to modify it like it did:

    engine bay is PURE SEX! Take a look at J Caps. They have them in chrome and black including the dipstick cover. I hope one day someone will invent transparent aluminum cuz that engine just screams to be looked at!!
