NON GENUINE WHEEL CENTRE CAPS
« on: 22 August 2014, 09:58:41 AM »
Wasn't sure where to post this topic but as it is about keeping my Saab pristine here goes!

Has anyone ever purchased the non - genuine wheel centre caps that are sold on ebay for less than half the price of genuine ones. They look very good in the photographs in the listing but being of a suspicious mind they could be photos of the genuine article!

It says that they are in Reading, but the guy who does this left Reading Saab and now works at Welwyn.  He hasn't updated his info.  I collected some from Welwyn last week.

I got these:

And bought 60mm stickers and made my own! They've been on for 12 months now and no problems. Meant it could get black logos too which I wanted!

I have no decision to make now as the Saab Service Club are giving me a free brand new set.
They must have a lot in stock!
