I agree. I am not a fan of the porsche caps.

I ordered some to try. They are the part number listed above but without the 'B' at the end.

Hope they arrive soon. Fingers crossed......

I'm in the same boat. When I bought these wheels they were spray painted black and the black Porsche cap didn't bother me that much. I waited until I needed new tires to get them powder coated and now the black cap and Porsche logo stand out quite a bit.

Ideally I'd like to find a VW cap or sticker that fits. My best idea at this point is buying the 70mm VW caps linked on the last page, sanding the back smooth, and adhering them to the Porsche caps. I wouldn't be totally opposed to a Porsche cap in a matching color, but silver is too light and the charcoal is too dark. It appears metal caps that could be powder coated to match don't exist.

Think about it this way, when purchasing aftermarket wheels it's typical to leave the aftermarket center cap on the wheel (ie. BBS, OZ, etc.). What's the difference with leaving the Porsche cap on the Porsche wheel? It's not like adding a Cayenne badge to the back of the Touareg or an M3 badge on a 328i.

The VW 7L6 601 149B that I bought off ebay fits these Cayenne wheels. The fit is not perfect, but the caps stayed on all last winter.

Finish Line wheels

Suggest you look to FinishLinewheels.com . Bought a set of Porsche replica wheels that came with Porsche Center caps of course. They ere able to help me be sending me a smooth center cap with a stick on VW logo. Looks factory and has lasted two plus years.
