Lost center cap

Noticed today that my rear center cap is gone, which is a bummer.

Anyone got any spares laying around? Or the part number to get a new one?

I bought a set a while back off ebay. Buy now I'd like another set ans I can't find them again. My guess is they got a letter from Porsche on legal letterhead. Cause you know the people spending $20 a set to replace / reftesh their center emblems were alternatively thinking about replacing their whole perfectly good wheel centers with new ones from the dealer for $220 + tax +/- shipping, (rather than nice aftermarket centers for 1/4 that).

I've purchased several sets from this cat... and am/was quite pleased with the product... especially for the price.

Be sure to peel off the plastic from the emblem.

Yours appear to be original (that recessed circle). The $50 ones are plastic, but look awesome and... if someone steals them... they deserve them.

Buy a couple of sets.

Got my replacement set. Thanks all for the tips. Rob hooked me up with a nice set of replacements. I do want to get just the center emblem for the missing one I have. So I have a spare set of OEM caps. Iíll keep looking.

How important is the condition?

I think I have a few lying around from when I had to cannibalize a set for the same reason. There may be a stripe of paint missing from one of the colors....I'll see what I have this weekend.
