Just discovered that you can't get a chrome filler cap conversion for an R57 through the dealer route Sad

Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket one available?

Failing that, has anyone had any graphics applied to their filler flap??

Thanks in advance peeps! Very Happy

You can't fit an S cap to an R57 due to the roof mechanism being so close. It just hasn't been done Sad sorry

I haven't seen anything. To be honest I'd just leave it. A sticker over it wouldn't look the best either

Pretty much what I thought, thanks. Agree about the graphic too, but we've just noticed that the filler cap is a slightly different shade of red to the rest of the car. Bought the car new in November and its one of those things we've done nothing about to date.....might see if Coopers will have a look at it Smile

Cheers

I expect the slight difference in colour is due to the flap being brought in ready painted so done at a different time......
