I thought the different brands were interchangeable?

I swear if I've bought yet another wrong part....

Maybe post pics of what you have in hand.  From memory the Bosch cap has shorter posts than the Beru style cap and you need to match the connector on the wire to the one on the cap.

Oh good. I intend to change the Bremi cap for a Bosch one when they are back in stock. The new leads can stay in their box until then.

For what is worth - I replaced with NKG with a Bosch Cap and it has been good so far!
