Aftermarket oil-cap with lock and key?

See I drive my car to carmeets alot and sometimes i leave my hood open. I'm just wondering if there is any oil-cap with a lock that i can buy for my e92 m3? Will buy it if you have it, or know if its possible to make maybe?

I used to have it on my old integra type R and it came in handy!

Thanks / Nick

smart idea. when I use to drive a mazdaspeed6 I was at a meet and a shady mazdaspeed3 dude went to an unattended car with his shady buddy and stole this guys blow off valve... it was really messed up on all levels. being that the speed community is relatively small the guy who stole it got found out. For that reason I will never put my hood up.

That really sucks bigtime. I've had my oil-cap stolen once and I had to drive the car home you know and because of that i got engine oil shoot up all over the place by the time i was home. So thats why i want to get an oil-cap with a lock. Saves all the trouble if for once again, someone would snatch it for some idiotic purpose.

Or you could just leave the hood closed.

Just keep a spare in the car in case this rare instance should occur again. Don't think you will find a locking one.
