God yes, go for it.. Just make sure they are locking (U need a special tool to get them off) I had 2 sets nicked (By spotty 14 year olds on bikes mainly) before I shelled out the extra $$ for the locking ones

Wear em with pride!!

I have a set on my 308, living dangerously though, they are NOT the locking kind. So far they have stayed with the car for over a year,( knock on wood).

I figure It's okay to have these because I don't have fender shields.

Go For IT!!! Those are nice! I had some on my car and they really compliment the yellow center caps at a close distance. Mine got stolen though :( . I really like the octagon shaped ones the best. The round or the funky ribbed sided ones look either to plain or too busy. So yea! Get em!!!!^_~! But at the same time, it's your choice so don't get pressured in.

Ok so this is the sickest photo I have ever taken.. But I was so inspired by Bazil's poll that I rushed out to the garage and took a picture of the Ferrari wheel valves on my 360..

I'm going out to get a life now!! Sad, sad, sad!

Derm :eek:ha:

Looks like a unanimous thumbs up for the valve stem covers. I had a set of locking ones and the last time I had my car washed two of them came off and could not get them on, I ended up putting the old one back on! They are kind of flimsy.

Cheers,

Bless you all chaps!! It's a HIT! Isn't democracy great!! :nuts:

I was a little concerned this morning, as about an hour after I posted this it was 3-1 against!! :green:

Dermot - hilarious!! That's exactly the sort of thing I do - and if they're good enough for a 360, they're good enough for my little baby 348! Why don't you clean the rest of the car - don't just concentrate on the wheels :lol:

silverF1Modena - good point - I've got to get some new wheel centre caps, as mine are a bit faded/cracked - so I'll probably do them all together.

I'll post a pic or two when the deal is done!!

Absolutely. Just make sure to keep the original caps if you decide to display your car for a concours.

But I really think they add just that little touch to your rims. Can't wait to see them on your car!

Will do Bazil, actually my front drivers side wheel is the only clean part of my car. I keep it that way for photo closeup opportunities like today's!!

Post some pics of the 348 with the valves installed (Then u can be a sad man like me)

Go for it Bazil, I bought them for my Lotus and they are a nice finishing touch , but very close to stepping over the line to "tacky".

they're close...
On the one hand, they might look extremely tacky.
Then again, they might make the car look great with the detail....

I voted yes, but I must ask - how much are they? That would be a major factor for me to change over from the chrome ones I've got.
