Same here. I've always used a black cap and never had any issues. I also run a step cooler thermostat and a bottle of water wetter.

There is no aux in jack on those years. Can you live with that? I test drove a 2006 T5. I liked it a lot. It didn't feel small.

In the end, I wound up buying an 08 C70 which I LOVE.

What is the difference between a 1990 hood vs. a 1991-1992 hood on the 740? My 91 740 got damaged in a hail storm and there is a 1990 parts car for sale on CL. I'm wondering if I can just...
