    It will definitely blend in more on that side. Can't hurt.

    Personally I like the contrast of the aluminum. If anything I'd ask if they can do a color to match your new wheels

    He is offering to pay $175 if you send back stock one, I think his plan is to paint them the same black he did the badges in. My stock one has a little ding and scratch from when I had problems getting it to unlatch and used a screwdriver, so going to buy the CF one. If not happy with it will sell and get a black one. From the R8 site have found a few people from Boston area with R8s on order so need to step it up making mine a little different

    I agree, the aluminum looks nicer.

    Get rid of the aluminum. Just not sure about CF... Gloss black or Gold. But probably black.

    The cf will make it blend just look at the other side of your car lol. I always thought the silver gas cap reminded me of what you buy at autozone

    I would only get the CF cap if the weave matched the weave in the CF sideblade, if they're different weaves or at different angles it would drive me nuts.

    I compared the weave to my blades and looked same, have got a few CF pieces from this vendor including my wing and whoever he has doing his work has the weave down to perfection.

    That's why I voted gloss black, but if its a perfect match then I would prolly go cf.
