    Since buying the Porsche oil and coolant caps from the group buy, the bay looked as though it was lacking.

    Bought a silver engine cover on eBay, only seen a couple before. Like how it looks. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1373308070.447836.jpg

    Anyone know why the difference from silver an black?

    I've never checked to compare, but was told that its as simple as Sport's have silver covers, non-Sport's don't
