Center cap fitment help

I have a question concerning center caps. Are they all universal fit? I have a 2003 with Carrera Lite wheels and need to replace my center caps which look like this


Can I replace them directly with caps from a later model which look like this...

I'm almost positive they are universal fit. I have the same wheels and bought set of original black crest ones off of ebay. The ones I got have a concave shape to them, which is perfect for the Carrera style wheels. I think the flat center caps would look weird on the Carrera wheel, but they should fit.

I agree about the concave shape...looks like the crest is a bit larger on the new style but I'm okay with that.

I'm thinking something like this would look good. You can most likely find them for cheaper. PORSCHE OEM COLOR CREST CONCAVE CENTER CAPS SET OF 4 | eBay

Yes, the new style will fit. I did the same thing a while ago...replaced old style with new style.
