OMG thank you for the PSA! I've been looking for these for the longest time and I was almost considering just carefully painting mine.

Out of curiosity, how much work is it to replace these? Do you have to disassemble the entire dash? Or is there a way to pop these out with everything else intact?

Alfa made two identical versions of it in the 90s, with and without a chrome ring. The rings are not sold separately.
You can still find new ones with chrome for only 9.99 each ! (New & Genuine Alfa GTV & Spider central air vent in black & chrome 113338560 | eBay
Lotus uses the one without chrome for Elise and Exige and with chrome on Europa and Evora. Same one is used with the Venom GT.

Old Alfa 166 and new Alfa 4C:
