    Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    I've been thinking about adding a little bling to the old 987S, the Tequipment Aluminum Fuel cap. The pic looks very nice but I haven't seen it in person, anyone get one?


    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    Haven't got, but be aware that it is metalised or metal look plastic. Similar to tyre valve caps.

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    Thanks wtsnet, I read it quickly and missed the "look" part in Aluminum-look. I think I'll pass on it, $140 seems a little high if it's not metal.

    You've got to buy either a VW or Audi to get real aluminium

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    I've got it (got it cheaper, thankfully). It's pretty, but yes, you can feel that it's plastic.

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    And you only ever see it for 5 minutes every 400 miles

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    Actually, I've removed my fuel door so that I can see it more often.

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    It is indeed only aluminum coloured plastic.

    At one point it was going to be a real aluminum part, but Porsche pulled it and changed it back to the cheap version.

    overpriced and pointless.

    You're getting 400 miles a tank?
    Very envious - only manage about 250-280 myself....

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    400 is a bit optimistic

    Best mpg i've seen is about 30.5, at a steady cruise of 70-75mph.

    I'm off to champagne for the weekend shortly - 900 mile round trip plus about 100 miles tootling around there Sat evening/Sunday am - i expect to use at least 4 tank fulls

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    ON THIS NOTE-I WAS LOOKING INTO UPGRADING THE INTERIOR IN ALUMINUM (2004 C4S ) AND AS I LOOKED INTO IT EVERYTHING IS PAINTED PLASTIC !!! DOOR HANDLES AND LIDS,CENTER CONSOLE-EVERYTHING.ITS A JOKE

    Re: Anyone have the Aluminum Fuel cap?

    Yeah, it is not worth SCREAMING over, but it is a joke... not a funny one though.
