Scott, if you still have those in about a month, I would be interested in a set of 4 of them. As I stand right now, I won't be able to do that until early Feb.

Good to see you back...take a trip for the holidays?

I'm going to attempt a DIY job - carefully painting and and sealing my normal centre caps this weekend!

If it all goes horribly wrong (which it probably will) I'll contact you about a set of these!

I've got the 18" Turbo Look I wheel on my car - I'm assuming these caps fit all designs of wheel?

Cheers

Paul

Porsche986-

I have [my wife] painted mine also, they turned out well, but not like these, they are a really beautiful. They look just like your hood badge. I would take these over any I have seen before.

Last time I sold a set on E bay they went for over a $110.00 for a set, and those were not near as nice as these.

yer micky, i have a set of those with the holes in the badge, lol i know what you mean about the quality. I said the same thing, its like a porsche badge is attached to the hubs.

When you paint them they look fantastic, but when you compare them to the real deal you think, erm maybe not so good.
I would recommened these you wont be let down.
Also it really finishes the boxster off, you wouldnt think 4 caps would make an impact but its funny how big they do!

Silver

The only color available to me is a silver background, I have seen some carbon fiber stuff, which could overlay a set of flat OEM caps. I also have some OEM caps for sale, check for fitment before purchasing.

What is your hole size in MM.

How is this...

Thanks,
Scott

Found the Volk TE37 hole dimension

Found this while looking for the center hole dimension; check out this websight for an ultra-light center cap solution:

Hole dimension

I am trying to figure out, if you are trying this yourself, or you need the dimensions, either way, if you need help let me know.

Just providing as much data as I can about my wheels

as I don't have physical possesion of them yet. I was wondering if you could tell if your caps would fit given the 65mm hole diameter. The link to the website was for entertainment value.
