Has anyone bought one of these....???


Bought it off e-bay, you may have seen it. I'm having trouble with mine not fitting correctly. Way to loose. I already sent it back. Hopefully the next one will fit right. Just was wondering if anyone else had this problem. Plus if the next one doesnt fit I can let you guy's know to "stay away"

I've seen it, It's the oil cap that replaces the OEM Mobil 1 one..... I have no desire to get one..... I want to keep my GTO as close to OEM as possible......The only thing I purcased off of Ebay so far is the GTO valve stem caps. They look pretty sharp.....(while I have em') I do expect them to grow legs and walk away at some point.

Yep it's an oil cap. Good quality billit alum it's just not machined correctly.

I think the decals are sharp looking. I did think about getting ones for the wheels.......I like the ones for the rocker panels too. Personally for me, I am not sure I want GTO written all over the car.
It already has GTO on the inserts, both front fenders, and big bold lettering on the back. And on mine, the license plate frame, a personalized plate, and valve stem caps. Any more..... for my taste..too gaudy.
I saw "theft proof" stem caps. You need a wrench to remove them, I thought about getting them but with my luck I'd lose the wrench. Or both wrenches that come with it.

I got one, mine fits. It is not quite as snug as the stock one but it stays on.
