    Well I can safely say I want that!!! $399 seems like a lot. $319 with that 20% coupon is better, but I don't think I want to spend $319 right now :(

    Life expenses...
    A/C went out, new unit installed inside and out
    Installed new storm shutters
    Bought a new family room sofa

    All in the same week :mad::mad::mad:

    EDIT: I nearly forgot, I also had to pay in full for 2 kids for summer camp and owed on my Federal taxes :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Wow! when life hits you, it really hits you! :eek: No summer camp for my 10 year old...we do have three summer vacation trips coming up though...lots of money out the window...but we'll have fun.

    As for the carbon fiber hubs, how do I keep someone from stealing them? I am thinking someone could just rip them right off. :eek:

    wonder if RPM will be selling single replacements or if a stolen one will mean you are buying another set of 4

    It would be nice if they make it theft proof - maybe with an allen wrench or something like that. Similar to what I've seen on, I believe, lug nuts covers locking process.

    They may have more success if they do them for the 18" aero wheels: they are the ones that need hub covers.

    Agree about the 18 inch idea.
    At 400 dollars, this is a rip off

    I would rather vinyl wrap them at $50.

    lol, Most of these branded items are going to disappear. Tesla is putting the hammer down on people to use their logo without approval....

    I wanted these as well but at $400 it's absurd. I might consider half that but even then I question it. They already appear to have disappeared a couple days ago so it looks like Tesla already caught up with them. I was surprised that there were so many things for sale with the logo on it. I thought maybe they were paying a royalty but I guess not.

    It looks like these are back on their site and slightly cheaper at $374 (or $299 after 20% off).

    You can choose the color of your Tesla T. How do you like the CF wraps? Easy to do? That's probably the route I'll go.
