Popular Post Ben Posted March 22 Popular Post Share Posted March 22 This is just an FYI, for anyone else in the same position. My centre caps were in a very sorry state, and I'd been meaning to try and do something to make them look a bit more acceptable for a while. I noticed the other day that one had turned from red to black on the crest for some reason so that forced me into action and I decided to try and get replacements. From OPC, I believe they are around £150 ish for a set of 4 - which seemed extortionate to me - so I looked for aftermarket versions on all the usual sites (design911, ebay etc). Prices varied massively - around £15 each at D911, to £15 a set on eBay. But I also came across OnBuy, selling what looked like exactly the same wheel caps for £8 delivered. Never used OnBuy before so was a bit skeptical, but thought for £8, it wouldn't be the end of the world if they turned out to be made of paper or something. However - I was very pleasantly surprised when they arrived as they are actually pretty decent - no, they aren't OEM, but from a short distance away you wouldn't know the difference. They are a slightly lighter shade of red than the OEMs, and 2 of them were a little tight to fit (gentle persuasion required), but IMO they are fantastic value for money. And I noticed today that the price has dropped even further for some reason so they can be picked up for £6 a set! I'm tempted to buy some spares, in case they don't last very long - for that price I don't think I can complain even if I have to change them every year. Here's the link for anyone interested, I used the seller 'Lofines', but others seem to be a bit cheaper as of today: https://www.onbuy.com/gb/porsche-wheel-centre-caps-76mm-silver~c10776~p48793779/ Pic below shows the oem on the left and the new aftermarket cap on the right (for info, I hadn't realised there was a removable clear protective cover on the new caps when I took this photo, since removed and it looks even better) Hope this helps someone! 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
