Where to get plain buttons/switches?

Anybody know where to get generic switches (no symbols on them) for the Boxster? We have all of these great places to put buttons and add things, but I don't know where to get any switches that will match the cover you take out and I don't want it to look "aftermarket" or cheap.

Thanks!

All the Porsche switches have icons. I think you can pull the cap off and cover the white icon part with black paint.

Are the Porsche switches expensive? (I know, stupid question, but regular switches are $4 so I'm trying to get a comparison).

Is there one that's cheaper than the others?

I betcha you could remove the white paint with a little denatured alcohol. The cruise control cap on my boxster had the paint worn off it and I wasn't using it right so I bought another and noticed that it's not on there very well.
