    I don't like the gold crests on a silver car. On a silver car I think the standard silver crests look much better.Especially with a Silver/ Black car the silver/black crests seem to be made for that color combo. They match really well where's the gold doesn't look right to me.

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    They look great colored. Great place to ID the car. Not too obvious, like Ferrari on fender, not too hidden, like on your key chain. Full color goes well with the colored brake calipers if you have them.

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    but i dont:( looking to paint them

    Most people must agree with you because I see the gold crested center caps a lot. In that picture with the silver crests I love the way the silver and black in the crests go with the rest of the car. It has that monochrome (not sure of the word) look. The car wouldn't have the same classy look with gold on the rims. All in my humble opinion of course.

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    i kind of agree with you stradale on the other side the colored crests stand alone as jewels

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    I tend to like plain colors like silver and black, but I like the colored wheel caps because they add a subtle bit of color to break up the monotony. It's the same reason I love the red calipers. That cab looks nice though...even without the colored crests.

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    i agree

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    I don't like the colored caps, they're too gaudy, all that sparkley gold. Also didn't opt for the embossed head rests or porsche seal on the floor mats. Just my opinion, all you guys that like it on your cars, more power to you!

    Re: Do you have pics of Arctic Silver with colored crests ?

    Agrre about the gold crests on the wheels but not about the crests in the headrests. And I've never seen the "porsche seal" on the floor mats so couldn't comment about that. The floor mats I've seen have have the name "PORSCHE" in very small letters and it looks great.

    I saw a 997 S with the crests in headrests yesterday. Porsche definately has a new stamping process because the crests embossed in the leather looked very different than on the 996. On the 997 the definition is much greater. The crest is creased into the leather much better. On the 996 it almsot looked faded. On the 997 the crest has much sharper lines. Difficult to describe in words. The crests on the headrest has to be my favorite interior option. Especially in a convertible where you can see the top of the seats from many feet away......... Adaptive sport seats and crests in headrests look fantastic !

    Hi Dillinger,

    Why not order the car WITHOUT the crests and also order the colored crests separately. They are essentially the same price separately (sometimes actually cheaper) as they are as an option on the car. That way you can "have your cake and eat it too".
