Anyone have a set of plain center wheel caps...

...the ones that have the Black-outlined Porsche crest? I know a lot of people swap them out for the full-color Porsche crest center wheel caps and put the other ones in the closest. By the way, I have 18" Cayman wheels on my 987S.

Thanks in advance...Bob Z.

That was quick! I just checked Suncoast's website: $12.95 each...pretty cheap. I am asking since the guy who most likely is buying my car seems to prefer the stock ones, vice the colored/Red ones I had custome made.

Sorry, the guy actually wants the colored wheel centers but without the Red background, which I had custom painted. Maybe someone with a Red car would like to trade? See the pic of mine.

Geez talk about nitpicking... you should've said you'll just take $50 off your asking price and he can go buy his own caps.

Not a deal breaker...I like to help out people whenever possible. I like the Red background and it cost over $100 to get them painted...Eric at Bumper Plugs did a perfect job. Mine are actually worth more than the colored ones but then again, someone else needs to appreciate them in order to trade.

I understand you need to do what you can to close the deal.

It'll drive me up the wall, if someone is making a $40k purchase and complain about a set of center caps. Nevermind how much they're worth and he could buy the car and swap them later. I know it's a buyer's market but he/she should be glad you're doing this for him as a favor. That's anal-retentive and I consider myself pretty anal.

PM returned.

If it were me I'd keep the Red ones...they really set off the wheels and make the car. But the buyer is the boss!
