    LOL it has been like that for ages! Did you get my pm regarding the facelift switches?

    I have the Forge Catch can in black with the replacement washer jet bottle (also in black) so the coolant cap being blue will stick out like a sore thumb!

    It is only £8 or so from awesome but if someone happened to have both it would be a bonus!

    Do you know nige if it is a genuine part you can buy from Audi??

    I want the R8 cap to go along with my TTS engine cover, a bit of engine bling so it seems lol

    Shows you how much I read lol.

    Yes will reply shortly mate.

    Ah yes, well why not buy an R8 coolant cap mate, £61 & for an S3 driver you can afford it :p

    I have the R8 cap, modded it so its right way round when fully closed, fits fine.

    I will think about the coolant cap - it will look too much on its own IMO in the top left hand corner. Nothing else chrome/aluminium in that area and my catch can is black so I think the black cap will suit better.

    The main emphasis will be around the engine cover and intake so don't want to distract attention away from that area.

    I have managed to get OEM part number for all 3 items so going to give audi a ring in the morning to get prices! :D

    Just out of curiosity, there is a black replacement for the screen wash? I been thinking along the same lines as you and have been trying to delete the blue (and orange ring) from the engine bay.

    Thanks

    I am not suire about the screen wash. I have purchased a Forge Oil Catch can and they provide you with a matt black washer funnel to replace the plastic one.
