Cigarette lighter

I recently purchased a non-smoker kit from Bumperplugs.com for my Boxster.
Much to my surprise it did not include a cover for the cigarette lighter hole.
It is included if you order the option from the factory...but not if you order the kit later.
I don't want a cigarette lighter hanging out of there and I would like to cover the opening when I don't have my cellphone plugged in.
I have checked auto part stores but no luck.
Does anybody know where to get one?

I'd be interested in one of these also. I just got the non smoker also. Is there a part # from dealership. I was considering calling to find out but have not done so yet.

I think it's because you got it from Bumper Plugs. If you get the kit from the dealer ($12 IIRC), it comes with the no smoking rubber plug.

Porsche makes a mini Flash Light that you can put in place of the cig lighter. But if you want a flush look, then just look for some plugs on eBay.

Here's a link for a plug I found. It says its like the "factory option". Anyone know if the factory plug has a "no-smoking symbol on its cap? http://www.eagleday.com/eagleday/interiortrim3.html

I got the lighter plug from Eagleday. It has a very small no smoking logo that is white. It isn't red like the picture. So. it looks fine
It fit a little too tight ...so I sanded it a little. Worked well.
