Rogue Engineering Oil Filter Lid...one of the few inexpensive ways to dress up your car!!


This fits the following vehicles

The Rogue Engineering CNC'd Oil Filter Lid was created to improve the looks of the engine compartment by replacing the cast factory part with machined version which dimensionally emulates the factory version. This cover replaces the factory cover P/N 11-42-1-711-075.

Made from 6061-T6 aluminum, this cover seals like factory and installs in minutes. Available in brushed aluminum or pewter anodized finish with Rogue Engineering logo.

You can find it on our site here.

That's what I was thinking... Looks like something made in my garage... out of place in a Bimmer.

CNC'd Oil Filter Lid

Maybe it can be changed to a nice stainless allen head cap screw?

Then it would look sweeeet!:thumbup:
Well the the problem is THAT is the stock bolt. The OEM bolt is almost a $10 part. I'm sure it would be quite expensive to custom make that bolt unless you made them in large quantities and that would raise the price on the product. Check out the bolt...


Check out the before and after below. I think the lid dresses up my engine compartment a lot. We just received a shipment today and I put one on my own car. it took less than 5 minutes, using a 13mm socket and you re-use the rubber gasket from the OEM lid.

Thanks for your input. How much more would you be willing to pay for an 7.5" long titanium bolt with a more attractive hex head?
