Steve, you try finding the Ford Granada cap? I remember seeing those car driving around back in the day. About 3 posts up, the poster gives the Bosch p/n

I suspect those WOULD be popular caps IF the price was right.

Don't you own a shop? I'd buy one from you if you suddenly became an importer.

Is there a black version of this cap available anywhere? I'm prepared to order a couple but I want black not the brown color.

I'm checking with an importer to see what kind of price I can get.

Who would be interested in a small group buy? Remember, caps wear out so consider buying a few so you have quick access to spares in the future.

Also, since I am a CB Performance dealer I can offer a cap & wire package that would include the CB MagnaSpark #2003 wires so the swap would only take minutes.

Thank's that 6011 part number helped me find more listings. I found a German Ebay seller and bought two caps, shipped, 30 bucks.

Locash I would be interested in a couple if you get a group buy going.

I have the CB wires on my bug they are nice quality especially for the price.

Ok, I got the word back from my supplier and I can get caps if I buy enough.

So here's what I can do:

I can offer a package that has (1) Bosch cap & (1) set of CB Performance #2003 8.2mm plug wires for $50 plus shipping. I can probably ship using a USPS flat rate box but I need to check on that later.

If you only want a cap, that'll be $25 each plus shipping.

For my supplier to order the caps I have to purchase 30 minimum.

I'll cover (15) of the caps and hope they sell here in the classifieds. So we need people to commit to buying the other 15 caps in order for me to pull the trigger. For those that are interested, consider buying buying at least a couple sets so you have spares. Or let your other VW buddies know and see if they want to buy in. These are genuine BOSCH caps and premium CB Performance wires.
