Has anyone bought the £20 centre caps off eBay?? I need to replace mine but can't bring myself to pay the near £200 asking price for OEM. I was wondering what the quality is like?

I had a set of Italian made eBay specials on a previous car, they're really good for the price. They will not last as long as the real thing, but they look good and you can afford to replace them every year for 10 years given the difference in the cost Very Happy

I've had 2 sets but only paid around £12. Didn't think you could get them anymore. Do you have a link?

It's ok, just found them. Worth every penny but change shade slightly after a couple of years.

I've bought a couple of sets over the years when I lost some of the originals and I always 2k lacquer them before fitting, it helps with fade and last a good few years.

I'm having my wheels refurbed so I might take that advice and get the refurbishes to lacquer them when they do the wheels.
