Where is the cheapest place to buy Porsche center caps?

Anyone know who has the best prices for center caps?

Suncoast Porsche (link below) charges $170. Sunset usually has better pricing:

Send a message via AIM to blinkwatt
Since they are hand painted won't the paint come off when you wash the wheels?

I don't think those are factory originals. I think they typically go for 160-180.

I've been watching ebay for center caps for a few weeks. Those ones are not OEM. The OEMs have plastic fingers sticking out the back and they have two holes through the front at 1 oclock and 7 oclock. Look for a Porsche part number on the back.

The ones I happen to be looking for don't seem to come up very often. They are the concave ones without the circular ring around the crest.

I saw that they sell a tool to remove the caps without removing the wheel...not very happy about that...only thieves have a reason to buy the tool. How often will the owner have to remove the caps!!!

I was missing the Porsche crest on one of my center caps and after being told by the dealership that they were $75!!!, I looked on ebay for a week or so. Found this one and got it for $10. Fit perfectly. I don't know about a special tool, i just popped the old one out with a paper clip through one of the small holes.
