View Full Version : Group buy on Porsche oil caps and coolant bottle caps

As a different and much cheaper alternative to the Audi R8 oil and coolant caps (and cheaper again than JCaps and Forge caps) the Porsche oil and coolant caps also fit VAG engines and are a definite improvement over the stock black/blue plastic items.

These will fit:
- Passat R36
- Golf R32 (Mk4 and Mk5)
- Golf GTI (MK4 and Mk5)
- Golf R
- Polo GTI (9N and 6R)
- Bora, Passat & Tiguan etc
- Skoda vRS Octy TFSI (pre facelift)
- Audi's 1.4 TFSI, 2.0TFSI etc.

Note that the oil caps do not fit Mk6 GTI engine (EA888) and the current 2.0TDI engines.

I can get these at about 1/2 the price of the equivalent Audi R8 items. (normally the R8 items are about $80-90 EACH delivered)

Just seeing if there is any interest in the Porsche oil and coolant caps here. If i can get interest (and deposits) for 10x or more of each then i will be able to sell them locally to you for about $45-50 each (or $90-100 for both if you want both) including local delivery from me to you.

If i can get interest and deposits then delivery would be around mid-late April.

Good - thats a positive start guys. Could you please update your posts with details of which cap(s) you would like (eg oil cap only / coolant cap only, or both). We really need x10 to make it worthwhile, although more would be better as it will make the price cheaper.

Im up to about 40 caps now so that's about as far as i want to go otherwise it could possibly get a bit messy with mixing up payments and shipping etc. I'll have to close it off soon. Im keeping track of everyones details in a spreadsheet including payments and addresses etc to try and minimise any confusion.

Hey Lucas have you got a set of these already and fitted them?

No sir, just seen photos. But they are the same as the OEM and R8 caps in that:

- Oil cap is a 90 degree clockwise turn and lock
- Coolant cap is a screw in and lock

All of the VW/Audi/Skoda and extended VAG group (Lambo / Porsche / Bentley etc) oil and coolant caps for the past 10-15 years are the same.

I know they fit MK4's. Mk5 and Mk6's are identical so they will fit aswell. Skoda's are also identical (checked my bothers Octavia the other week). Anything older than MK4's im not sure of and so i didn't include them in my list of cars they fit in the 1st post.

Im not looking to screw anyone over here - if by chance they dont fit a particular car ill ask you to send them back to me and ill refund you.

Ive spoken to a guy in the UK who has them fitted to a Seat Cupra R (same engine as Golf R) and he said they fit fine. And another guy here in Australia who confirmed they fit fine. A few guys in the USA have said they don't sit straight or don't fit - so im getting mixed reviews......but this seems to only affect guys who have removed the oil filler neck on the MK5 GTi and MK6 R models. For this reason, i have only ordered a small amount of them at this stage so i can check fitment across a range of cars before committing to the entire group buy amount.

These are currently on their way to me and i will be able to check fitment on the following vehicles:

- Golf R 2.0TFSI
- GTI Mk5 2.0TFSI
- Skoda Octavia vRS 2.0TSI (same engine as MK6 GTI and Tiguan etc)
- Skoda Fabia vRS 1.4TSI twincharge (same engine as Polo GTI)
- Skoda Fabia 77TSI
- Skoda Octavia 2.0TDi (same engine as MK5 and Mk6 TDI)

Unfortunately i do not have access to an R32, but my step sister has an R36 so i can check fitment on the R36.

Update - my sample pack of 3x oil caps and 3x coolant caps arrived about 10mins ago so i will check fitment across a range of VAG cars this weekend. If they fit then i will wrap this Group Buy up and order the full quota early next week.

^ have sent you a PM morph.

Glad to say that the oil caps fit fine on my R, so that means they will also fit Mk5 GTI no problems (although i still will check on my mates MK5 GTi to be 110% sure). All they need is to be cracked open and re-sat in a different spot (like you have to do with the Audi R8 caps). Takes 5-10 mins to modify the cap and once its back together you cant tell its ever been touched.

I'll be checking fitment tomorrow on a bunch of other cars (R36, 1.4twincharge from Polo GTI/Skoda Fabia vRS, 2.0TSi and 2.0TDI etc).....its good when your brother works at a dealership :)

If all goes well then ill close the group buy off and order on Monday.

Good news. Caps are on their way to me from the UK. I'll be in touch with a few MK6 GTI owners via PM as the oil caps do not fit these engines without some mods. So ill offer a refund for those few people. Same on the 2.0TDI's.

For the rest of you,
- They fit the MK5 GTI, MK6 R, Rocco R, Audi A3/S3 engines providing you have not removed the plastic oil filler neck extension.
- They fit the Mk4 and MK5 R32 engines
- They fit the 1.4TSI twincharge engines (Golf 118TSI, Polo GTI, Fabia vRS)
- Checking the 1.8T 20v engine from the previous generation Polo GTI this week

Given that the oil caps do not fit the MK6 GTI engine, i will have several spare which are will be for grabs. Otherwise ill throw them on ebay. PM me for info if interested.

Should have these in the mail to you all in the next 10 business days or so.

I will be in touch with some of you who are still owing some money via PM over the next day or so.

I'll PM you later today Ernest to discuss - but basically the oil cap will not fit on the newer 2.0TSI engines im sorry. The Jetta 147 uses this engine as far as im aware.

You will need to buy the R8 oil cap (which i suggest you do from Bold Sport as theirs is by far the cheapest i've found) and this will fit your Jetta: http://www.bold-sport.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=248

I will be purchasing 500g satchels from Aust Post tomorrow and getting everyones orders ready over the next few days and in the post later in the week.

The order of caps has just been delivered to me so i will package them up tonight and start sending them out tomorrow (Wednesday) and the balance on Thursday. Please allow 4-5 business days for Australia Post to deliver them.

The Aust Post satchels i bought have tracking numbers on them so i will update a list on the first page listing who's orders have been posted and the tracking number.

I still have 3 or 4 sets up for grabs so if you are interested PM me.

These are posting today. I will advise you of tracking numbers shortly.

It will take me another day to get the rest of them ready so bear with me.

All the lines marked in yellow are being posted today. Tracking number is listed alongside your usernames and list confirming what caps you are getting.

You may notice that i havent posted any of the caps yet to suit the MK5 GTi / Rocco R / Golf R. This is because i need to re-align each of the oil caps so that they sit straight on these engines. This takes about 5-10 minutes to do for each cap, so it will take me one or two evenings to do them all. They will all be posted in the next day or two and i will update the tracking numbers etc for you all.

You can track your item here: http://auspost.com.au/track/

Bear with me Mk5 GTI and Mk6 R guys - im working my way through them. All the oil caps for these cars need to be re-aligned so that they sit straight once installed, so its taking some time to do them all.

I was hoping to be able to post these today, but im not finished yet, so ill post on Monday.

Yeah good effort Lucas, i know i didn't buy any as i already have an R8 one but i know whats involved in doing group buys and it's good to see members like yourself putting your hand up and getting it done. *Pat on back

Damn its alot of work, keeping track of PM's and payments, keeping everyones details / addresses etc on a spreadsheet. Writing out all of the Aust Post bags and double checking you have the right parts going to the right person. Then you get people who don't even have the courtesy to reply to your PM's and tell you they are no longer interested so you end up wasting time and effort on those people (Watercooled forum FYI)

The photo above is only showing about 1/2 of the orders (those are JUST the Mk5 GTi, Mk6 R, Rocco R and S3 caps). All of the R32, Polo GTi etc caps have already been sent because those caps don't need to be re-aligned - hence no work to be done on those. I thought i'd get those ones out of the way and then i can concentrate on the rest.

Ive spent about 5 hours in total over the last 2 nights getting these ready, but ive still got more to do. I'll have time to finish them off over the weekend and ready to post on Monday.

Ok so to track your pacel use the Aust Post tracker: http://auspost.com.au/track/ and remove any spaces from your tracking numbers.

Good to hear they are showing up at their destinations. For anyone who is still waiting for theirs to arrive, refer to my post on the previous page from yesterday with your tracking numbers. Just bear in mind that some of the destinations that are further away (like WA, SA, Nth QLD etc) will take longer to arrive and also destinations that are not in or near a large city will also take longer to arrive.

I had to send yours via Express Post because i had run out of my other bags - hence the different tracking number to everyone else. Bonus is that it travelled faster ;)

Hey Lucas installed my caps look great the radiator one actually sits vertical there a way to adjust it so it sits horizontal like the engine oil one? :D

Lucas_R
28-04-2013, 11:35 PM
^ on some cars it sits vertical and on others it sits sideways - depends on the car and how your stock cap sits. For example, the stock Golf coolant cap sits vertically, so the Porsche one is the same. On the Polo's it sits sideways because their coolant bottle is a bit different. I could not see a way to crack the coolant cap open so im not sure if it can be modified to sit differently.

5x oil caps left. Coolant caps are all gone.

3x of them are perfect - brand new. Look really good on R32 engines as well as MK4 GTi/Polo GTi engines. $40 posted. I just want them gone please.

2x of them have a few little scratches. One is almost prefect, $30 posted. The other has a few more marks on it and would be suitable to someone not quite so fussy, $20 posted. Can provide pics of the little scratches to people if wanted. The scratches are all very small and are not visible from 1m away, you can only see them if you are up close.

Hi Orr - ive only got the oil caps left mate. The coolant caps are sold.

Do you still want the oil cap on its own?

Anyone having problems with their oil cap? Necessary to use two hands basically to turn cap into the lock position or is it just my delicate nimble hand strength?

Was a bit tight to get it off at first. Probably cause its hasn't be removed for a little while, but mine did eventually come off, just need a bit of force to get it off I reckon.

They are a snug fit on the GTi and R engines but not the R32's Jeff. Thats weird. I sold about 10 sets of caps to guys with R32's and have received no negative feedback what so ever, so this is a first.

It could be the fact that on first application the rubber seal is dry so its a tight fit. Once you have run the engine, then a bit of oil will splash onto the rubber seal from inside and then from then on it should be easier to take off and put back on. Can you try that and let me know?

I had these brought in from Germany via a friend of mine (old school mate) who works at a Porsche dealership. This was about a year ago when they were new to the market.

Since then, i have noticed several shops both in the UK and USA selling them. I will have the part numbers at home somewhere which might help you when searching for companies selling them.
