Yes-a little pricey for a plastic piece only the driver will see but looks real sharp. Someone commented the tether didn’t spin freely on the cap, but it does. The circular part of the tether that fits the cap is tapered and if it’s fitted incorrectly, will be tight and non-spinning. Works great when adjusted correctly.

This fuel cap is definitely an improvement over the standard one. Looks way better and feels substantial even though it's plastic. During installation, the rivet was a little hard to remove but I found a video online that showed me how to remove it and how to install the supplied rivet. One issue I ran into was the tether on the new cap doesn't spin freely around it like the old one did, so it gets twisted up rather easily when you're putting the cap back on. Did anyone else find this to be an issue? Or did I miss something during install? Not a huge deal, and overall, I'm pleased with this purchase.

The tether had broken on my 07’ C4S . Putting the cap on the pump with refueling was getting old, standard caps were about 25$ on line but the upgrade did look really good. So why not! The install was easier with an on line video and a small mirror under the pin to guide its removal. No regrets at the pump now as it seals very well with no tension on the tether this should last for a long time, while being quite posh.

Let’s be real, I’m the only one who will ever notice this. But I’ll be just a little happier every time I fill her up. Install on my 997.2 was a little awkward - My tip would just to simply snip off the old plastic pin/rivet instead of prying it out. Replacement parts popped right back in.

Beautiful, genuine Porsche gas cap that fits perfectly and looks fabulous every time I fill up with gas. No mods needed.

Tried a different one but it threw a check engine close so I went back to the plastic cap. When this went on sale I jumped on it and even though it is still expensive it looks awesome and impresses me every time I fill up. Who could ask for more?

We're talking about replacing an inconspicuous part that is kept hidden away under a door that is normally closed -- with a sharp-looking part that is kept hidden away under a door that is normally closed. Well, some of us drive Porsches because of the way they make *us* feel, not because of any need to impress others. Either way, you can't go wrong replacing the original, nondescript black fuel filler cap with this silver sport gas cap. In truth, it's a pretty good idea to change out your gas cap after a while anyway to keep the seal nice and fresh. Older gas caps can leak a little and throw a scary Check Engine code, so beat it to the punch and change it out now. After all, our cars are more than 8 to 15 years old by now, and some of the original seals are starting to go. Full disclosure: this fancier cap is not actually aluminum, it is "aluminum-look" plastic. But to tell you the truth, it looks just as good anyway, and the price is one of those rare Porsche upgrades that is really affordable and makes a great gift. To yourself. Based on my experience, it will give *you* your own private pleasure every time you fill your tank. Who cares about what others think, anyway?

This is a nice cosmetic upgrade of the stock gas cap. It fits perfectly (997.2 Turbo S) and is "relatively" easy to install.
I used this process on a 997.2 Turbo S car.
The key to installation is to use the longer of two provided tethers and the separate retainer rivet with the long push-pin..
Remove the existing rivet by pushing the push pin up from the bottom. The rivet and stock tether will come out easily.
Now re-insert the rivet (with the push-pin extended) into the new tether, place the rivet in the hole and push the pin down...
(You can use the original push pin if it is not damaged. This leaves you with a nice new spare.)
Nice part...Highly Recommended....easy to install if you know the trick.

Picture shows a more "brushed" look. Actual cap is too shiney, but it still beats the look of the standard 997 gas cap.
