    I have the caps on order at the dealership where I bought my car. They charged me $19 per cap, but I had a $50 gift card because of buying through costco, so figured I'd get them there even if I could get them online cheaper. Guy told me they would be in the next day when I ordered them, I went back in 5 days later, and they had ONE of the 4 in, and told me not to expect the other 3 til Aug. 8th. This was rather annoying, so after a bit of complaining, theyre going to just ship them to my house once they get in. I live about 30-40min from the dealership depending on traffic and dont feel like making another trip down there. The one cap I did get looks good though.

    I cannot say how many they will have in stock, but my local dealer sells these caps (42603-52030) on their web site for $11.11 each. I ordered a set of four yesterday and asked them to waive shipping. I was able to pick them up the same day - $47.88 out the door.

    With shipping it shouldn't cost over $60. You may want to call ahead first to make sure they have 'em in stock.

    Very nice. Looks better that way.

    I have a question about the front bumper though. I'm thinking about taking my front license frame holder off and noticed you have some color-coded plugs for the holes. Where can I purchase them?

    I ordered the center caps from parts.com. One of them came with the tabs that hold the cap in place, broken. The cap is made of plastic.

    Are there any center caps, that fit, made from metal?

    Just picked up my 42603-52030's from the dealer. They fit perfectly, thanks to everyone here for coming up with the right part number! As someone mentioned before, they are chrome coloured and don't match the rest of the 15" wheel but they do at least match the wheel nuts. In my opinion, this is a much better look than the dorky wheel covers.

    Lol. I think that 'smiling red' would be smiling even more with the center caps.

    The dealer (well the salesman) promised to get me some of these cap about 7 weeks ago. I've been calling him asking where they are and he has been saying they were on backorder. Now he isn't even returning my calls. I'm starting to wonder if he even works there. I finally went to a different dealer and ordered them. They will be here tomorrow.

    I would complain but I forgot to include it in the "deal" and remembered right after we signed the paperwork so it was a handshake promise by the salesperson. As a result I don't have much of a leg to stand on in that regard.

    As a side note the mats didn't come with the little clips that hook them to the floor, but it did come with the note saying they must be in place. He said he was going to take care of that as well but the other dealer gave them to me for free. I'm starting to think I should have gone with the other dealer on the purchase.

    Lesson learned, when you go to buy a new car make sure to have an actual list of written stuff you want included in the sale. And get it in writing.

    Center caps can also be ordered from www metrotpn com (remove the spaces and insert the appropriate symbols) for $11.00 each plus shipping. Fit perfectly!

    Any feedback appreciated.

    Way better with the center caps. :)

    I wonder how they'd look with thin chome trim rings added?

    Flat Narrow Chrome Trim Rings Stylish Look, Great Prices, AutoAmenity

    Note, that I don't even know if they'll fit on the 2010 15" alloy wheel.

    But they did fit on the Gen II Touring 16" alloy wheel and looked fantastic with the chrome center caps and lug nuts on that wheel:
