    I'm confused

    On awesomes site they say the following:

    Genuine Audi R8 oil cap - Modified at Awesome to fit all VAG engines

    Will the R8 cap not fit as is?

    I bought one of fleabay and though it fits, the point it which it is secure means it sits at an angle.
    Not explained very well, so I'll try again.

    The current oil cap has raised bit to grip on to which runs from left to right. When I put the R8 one on the handle runs diagonally across, so doesn't look quite right.

    Be interetsed to kow what Awesome do to them and if it is to rectify this issue?

    The cap just splits in half and you can position it in 3 different positions for different cars, i had this problem with mine sitting at the wrong angle too but now mines nice and straight.
    you basically have to remove the rubber ring from around the outside edge and then pry it all apart with a flat bladed screwdriver, position it as required and snap it back together, and replace the rubber ring.

    You only separate the cap where it is built in 2 parts anyhow and no there are no gaps left.

    I have just taken delivery of my Nuespeed Carbon Fibre engine cover and I reckon this will compliment it quite well
