...today from thepartsbin.com for $29.22. Bosch #1-235-522-382. Besides the markings for #2 and #3 cylinders being reversed and the shorter bolts (which I`ll swap with the M3 cap), the black cover has 3 extensions below the mating surface of the cap. They extend about 4 1/2 mm; I found that they could be trimmed off easily with a knife. Of course, the other option is to swap the cover off the M3 cap. The cap proper (the orange part) is identical to the Bosch M3 cap #1-235-522-406, which is $68.00! I`ll use the rotor for the M3, Bosch# 1-234-332-391, also from thepartsbin.com ($19.28).<br>John<br>88 ///M3 Cinnabar

I found that the extra plastic on the cover didn't interfere with anything. It fit just fine without trimming. Here's a side-by-sid shot of the two. The old one is the one with all the carbon dust!<p><img src="http://www.bayareamotorsport.com/~jon/pics/dsc00004.jpg"><p>-Jon<p><i><br>...today from thepartsbin.com for $29.22. Bosch #1-235-522-382.
