I got a lovely finish on these with the Enamel engine paint, but my god it takes an age to dry, could be up to 3 days!

Does anyone know how the fuel cap comes off on these, is just undoing the surrounding bolts?

Glad you did it. I was thinking about it but now I see them on, I prefer the silver. You’ve saved me some hassle! 👍🏻

I think your right not to change yours, it ties in better with the silver wheels, mines getting to be all black now, and now the fuel cap is sticking out like a pimple on a pigs arse!

Here is mine, paint shop refused to paint it, so moonstone is right.

Looks good, I want to paint mine, I got a great finish on the Tips so I am confident I can get the same on the cap.

How is it removed Denso, It can't be as easy as undoing the Allen bolts surely, I thought they where fake ?

I wanted mine painted when the car was in bits the last couple of weeks but bodyshop wouldn’t remove it and paint 🤷‍♂️ They said they had some horror stories about the paint lifting on some that had been done, honestly i never pushed them on it.

On another note, thinking of giving the car some mechanical TLC. Looking at get the haldex and DSG services done along with an oil change. Anyone any idea of likely prices for these. Car has only done 24000 miles but is coming up for 5 years old now.
