New Lugs hard to decide

I am having my original wheels powdercoated right now, was thinking of some new lugs. I see Febi lug prices all over the place. I am not interested in any that do not have the seperator or washer section.....I think Porsche designed the originals that way for a reason. Have any of you folks replaced your originals?....if so what with or what direction did you go in ???

Thanks
Dwight

Mine were included in the spacers I purchased. They match the originals, albeit lengthier due to the, um, spacers.

Have you considered going the studs route?

To match the Porsche "There is no substitute" this is the only choice. Never deal with chipped, rusty nasty lug bolts again.

I bought a cheap set of spacers on EBay, and they had the one piece bolts. I bought a set of the better bolts with the separate spacer/washers, but that probably is overkill. It was a waste of money, as I just bought a lug kit, and the lug nuts will end up damaging the finish of the wheels anyway. The good news is that very deep well of the wheels makes it impossible to see any finish damage.

ECS tuning black anodized lugs. Two piece just like the OEM ones. I have a set I might put up for sale. I had to get longer ones because I ended up getting 15mm spacers for my wheels. Went with the same brand just longer.

Have the lugs powder coated with the rims. Powder coated mine and they look great. Match the rim.

Ebay has lots of vendors selling plastic lug bolt covers for cheap, with your choice of colors.

I thought the idea was worth a try, and I really do like the resulting look.

I bought the ECS lugs to use with may ebay spacers. The Black lug nuts looks really nice on the wheels, initially thought I wouldn't like em.
