Apparently, the Lotus wheels don't come with the Lotus Logo center caps:


Factory replacement price is said to be over $120 for a set of four. :( Anyone got a cheaper source? Anyone ever bought wheel caps? I can't find them anywhere and dread to think what Symbolic Parts Counter will want for them.

I don't know if you are going to find a much cheaper price than $30/each for a colored logo cap.

Cheapo silver non-color plastic caps for the Miata wheels are about $20/each. And that's for a Mazda, not a Lotus!

Check out these prices from HRE Wheels:
ETCHED ALUMINUM CENTER CAP - Standard HRE Logo $60.00
HRE COLOR LOGO DISK - HRE Logo in Red/White/Blue or Black/Silver $10.00
PLASTIC FLAT CENTER CAP - Blank $15.00
DOMED ALUMINUM CENTER CAP - Blank $40.00
CUSTOM ETCHED DOMED ALUMINUM CENTER CAP $60.00 and up
O.E.M. CAPS $75.00 and up
340 SERIES HEX CAP $60.00

Yikes, you're right!

Maybe it was $120 Each from Lotus. :) I'll ask around.

Thanks for the reference quotes. I'm just a cheap bastard.

I've checked on prices of a few parts from Lotus, and they've all been far more reasonable than I expected.

My stock wheels have them. If yours don't, you got ripped off.

Wheel center caps

Hi
You should have the center caps already fitted as standard on arrival on a new Elise.
but if you are after more, I would be able to get them for 5 pounds each + postage. :)

You could make a killing shipping parts to the U.S.!

Edit: In fact, I imagine someone would pay you to ship enough parts to build a whole car!
