    I like that shade of yellow, a little darker than the OEM's

    They look great on your car. I wonder if on a yellow car they might overpower the rest of the cars color.....just a thought. They do look great on red!!! Lou

    I got the same caps from Daniel and installed them a week ago on my red 355 and they look great! BIG improvement! Now a few of my lug nuts (wheel bolts) look like they need replacing ...

    Very nice! SOO much better. I'm going to guess that it was my thread that inspired you.

    ahh yes...I see you posted your pics on my thread :D

    I like the new ones better too but the previous owner put Yoshi shields on my car and the yellow part of the shields is a "weaker" yellow that I think matches the weaker yellow of the old caps better.

    Anybody willing to part with one or more of their old caps (in good shape)? I recently managed to break one of mine even though I used a "full size" socket and tapped fairly gently from the rear side.

    You can PM me if you have a spare/spares.

    Here is a side by side pic of the old and the new caps ... Makes a big difference once you see them on the wheel
    I used a low profile jack and removed the wheels to save the old caps -- anyone who needs an extra old style cap (two are in ok shape, the other two are faded around the edges, the one in the pic is the worst of the 4) just send me a pm

    Old caps are much nicer then the new style ones.

    I like the new style much better without the ugly black or silver bezel, but would prefer a lighter yellow on them, more similar to the originals.

    Look great! I need a new set soon, so I'll probably get these ;)

    I do like the looks of the new ones, but it looks like the horse put on a few pounds. Making it look not OEM. Like the detail is lost somehow. Maybe it's just me. Still debating....Lou

    Also, my car is giallo. I wonder if it will match that color or be a deeper, darker yellow.
    Is giallo and giallo modena the same color?????

    Just wanted to give a public "thanks" to Darin (Cali42). He sent me his old style wheel caps since I was looking for a replacement after breaking one of mine.

    Wouldn't take a dime for them either.

    Grazie :)
