Fonzi, is there a source for nicer center caps for the penta copies we bought?
They appear to be about 2-3/8".

I have read that the Amg caps are still available from mb. I don't know the part number, but I bet it is in nobby's Penta thread. Or I bet 48hp posted it somewhere.

Thats all I have been able to find also. I was hoping something with the raised star like the bundts have was available in this size.
Thanks

I don't like the idea of trying to make my car look like an AMG but I guess the fact is that these wheels are copies of the AMG wheels, making the AMG logos most appropriate in my opinion. I don't plan to switch the caps on these copies, keeping the cheap-looking copy caps, which are a perfect fit for what these wheels are. :). Then again, I am not mounting them any time soon.

Now I did find some 55 or 57 MM stick ons that were the same as the hood emblem. Just not sure how that would look on the wheel cap.

I will probably just have my daughter make some designs on a piece of masking tape. :).
Theres a thought....3 year old grandson is coming to spend a month with us next week. He loves this car. Everytime i was working on it he had to be sitting in it....he has a project now :)

I will have to unload those Pentas before I get the Amg bug. I have already thought of putting Amg cams in the 026 when I get it home. Rjmburgess makes Amg look like a slippery slope.

So now I have real Amg Pentas and also the Taiwan Pentas. The Taiwan Pentas are on the bottom of the pile and not easy to get. Is there any need for me to see if the center caps are interchangeable?
