These are a genuine set.



One of these sets are fake, next to my other genuine set. Fake left, genuine right... or are they?

The clips on the back look right but I'm not sure from the pics of those are the concave ones. I'll do some more digging. Thanks smile

Well the Stuttgart text shouldn't be black, so that's one clue tongue out

I replaced mine last year only cost £130 direct from Porsche so didn’t see the point looking online for a small saving. They apply discount if you tell them you’re part of PCGB, they don’t ask for any membership codes

Can you not just buy new crests for them? Mine are black and ok apart from the crest badges are starting to deteriorate.

They’re not. It’s a trick of the light.

Aye, the parts guys at my OPC don't even need asked, they just apply discount for me. Sadly they can't find a silver version of the original caps. The parts number on the black ones I have doesn't appear in their system either. They've got a set of concave silver ones with the 10 tabs on the back, but the originals I have with the 5 fit so much better that I ideally want them.

Getting new badges for the black ones and repainting them is another possible option.

Ahh understood, I think mine had the 10 clips too. I provided them with my old part number and they said it didn’t exist anymore in their catalog. I think they’ve made changes to that part, I may be wrong. He had to find mine via the chassis number as he wasn’t getting anything via the part number or registration plate

Mine are the silver / black crest on the Porsche design wheels though (an S not R)

Be nice if you could buy a cap with just R in centre but unfortunately you can't, only ever seen ones with R S

Could probably get something 3D printed, sanded and painted.

Sorry, missed this post. In that case they certainly do look close.

Current thinking is that if I can get new crests I might just DIY refurb the black ones and make them silver. I need to measure up the crests and see if I can find some quality new ones for sensible money. I'd try and seal them to prevent future water ingress if I go this route. For now the car is wearing the tatty black caps which don't look as bad on the silver rims as I'd expected. I couldn't deal with driving it with a missing one or one an odd colour. laugh

Finally got the cover off today, she’s not moved since September thanks to poor weather and salty roads.

What a day to revisit this car, forgotten how much I love driving it.

Its in whatever iPhone put it in, ha.
I think the latest iPhones automatically jazz up the colours a little, but I've not edited it.

Not sure if this has been posted before, if it has, i haven't seen it.

10:10 for effort but this lads delivery isn't the easiest to listen to.
But if you fancy a full on Cayman R geek out on what's different between a Cayman R vs a Cayman S, its all outlined here and he's done a very comprehensive job of it too.

Hi guys,

I have a white R that I’m reluctantly open to selling as we are looking to move out of our rental and buy a home.

It has all the good bits :

Manual
Buckets
Chrono
PSE
AC
Alcantara gear lever, steering wheel & glovebox
Black Spyders
33k miles

I’d prefer to enjoy it over summer but if a compelling offer comes, I’m open to selling.

DM me if interested.

Hi A1Diego - I’m very interested. I have tried to DM you but your profile is not allowing this. I think there is a profile setting you need to amend to proactively allow this. Please feel free to message me through here. It would be great to hear from you.
