None of the online dealers have it on their websites?

They run about 6 EURO.

If you like the style, but don't want to look like an ///M poser, I have this M-Technik one I'll sell you for $5 + postage ;)

I'm not trying to be an M3 poser, I'm just going with the spirit of ///M which would be to enhance a car for the pleasure of the driving experience :thumbup:

Plus the cap will add at least 5 horsepower, especially because it is so close to the engine.... I want one too.

Well its just that the square stock cap that says 'Castrol' on it looks kinda out of place with the Dinan CF covers and the CF Gruppe M intake.
I'd really like the polished M oilcap but its been discontinued last I heard. I can still grab the plastic M oilcap off ebay for about $8-$12 shipped but I hear UUC is about to come out with a new oilcap design, so I might wait(unless I can find some one selling the polished M oilcap).

I got one for 12 bucks at Savage BMW. I'm not a posuer, I just thinks it looks better than the stock one for my 330i, and it's not like people will see it all the time it's a mod just for me. Besides, I hate the "BMW recommends Castrol" crap on my stock oil cap. Definately get it, it's not expensive, and it looks really good.

Whoa guys and girls, I didn't mean to offend anyone with the "///M 3 poser" remark! I just know there are quite a few people out there that don't think ///M's belong on non-///M cars. Also, I haven't seen anyone else out there that has posted picture of this cap and just wanted to let peolpe know it's an OEM option ;) Heck, I didn't know about this oil cap until I picked it up. :D
