The little "webs" are very fragile; there`s no way to grab the center part that holds them in without breaking and removing the outside first. I`ve been running mine without caps for a couple of months. It runs fine. Antitamper caps are not necessary on my car because no one works on it but me. Same deal with the plug on the mixture screw on the AFM.
88 ///M3 Cinnabar

adjusting the throttles or can the originals be re-used. I mean do you have to destroy them for removal. I understand the "new" ones are blue, which is neither here nor there but are people replacing out of necessity or what. Just trying to be thorough on my next parts order. TIA.
