Wow! Those look amazing! How much was it to powdercoat one wheel if you don't mind me asking.

I found a guy on Craigslist who works out of his garage, he charged $150 for all 4, including the sandblasting. They're not perfect where he had to tape off the lips, but I'm pretty happy with them.

That's not that bad! I'll have to find someone around here to do some powdercoating for my Virgos for that cheap.

found it on ebay of course :-P It is an Australian-spec for the old ecodes, but works nicely with the quad rectangles. That one is a repro, but it fits nicely. I still need an emblem, though.

the stock center caps would look terrible with the gold color, but seeing how I only have three of them, it really doesn't matter. Luckily, the volvo center caps fit perfectly.

I am a master of deception, bwa-hahaha!
They're old enkeis, 15x7 et 7 with a volvo bolt pattern and centerbore. They're so old the people working at Enkei didn't even recognize them when I called looking for a center cap:)
