From what I’ve noticed, it seems like early production 02s had the Ferrari gas cap. The fuel filler neck is entirely different, so you’d have to change that out if you want to use the Ferrari gas cap on a newer 4200, which is kind of a bummer.

I kind of think all Spyders had aluminum threaded and Coupes had plastic clicking.
That’s definitely not the case. I’ve bought and sold over 50 of these cars and have had to put gas in all of them. It has more to do with the date of production. The earlier cars have the Ferrari gas cap. It looks like there was a period in late MY02 and early MY03 where both were used for some reason.

Thanks, that's the kind of info I'm looking for. I know that the filler neck for the alum. cap is held in by 3 screws, spaced 120deg. The plastic type 4 screws at 90deg. Am I correct that all coupes had plastic and early spyders aluminum? Is that true whether cc or 6mt?

Jason, you see so many of these cars, any thoughts on the great fuel cap argument I've got going?
