    I fitted some replacement carbon fibre (look) centre caps on my wheels earlier this year and looking at the bonnet and boot roundels I see that they are delaminating and generally looking a bit scabby so I thought I will replace those with the carbon type.
    However almost all the sellers on eBay have "sets" for the bonnet and boot which consists of one at 82mm dia. for the bonnet and one at 73mm for the boot, only problem being my bonnet and boot roundels are the same size at 82mm. So, I thought if, I gets 2 sets I could use the smaller ones for my side gills. Oh no I can't because they are 77mm dia. The one for the centre of the steering wheel isn't a problem 45mm,sorted.. If anyone has seen some at all please let me know. I found some 78mm ones (probably the ones I need) but they are considerably more expensive. And before someone say leave it standard with the blue and white they're not available in the sizes that I need either. Cheers, Tony.

    I'm afraid that you can only guarantee the fit with originals Tony.
