You wouldn't be the first!


I suspected I wouldn't be - great link thanks!

If you need the whole centre cap (with the green/yellow badge), then they should still be availlable from Lotus - they are an Esprit part number - A082G6071F

But the logo on the originals has a tendency to fade after a fairly short time.

If your caps themselves are good, then it is simple to replace the faded centre logo - have a look at this thread

I tried to replace the logos only. Sent a PM to the centre logo supplier listed in the thread, but never had a reply. Ended up buying four new centre caps from SJ Sportscars.

When I wanted some he didn't reply to PM on here - I went onto his facebook page to make contact, and from then on it was very good service.
