Not a link as such, but I had a set that came via Marios at Autoshield. He had fitted them to the car I bought.
were they large like the originals and covered the entire centre of the wheel, hiding the wheelbolts, or were they just small caps to cover the centre bore hole leaving the wheel bolts exposed?

As best as I know, the only difference is the originals have plain silver tridents, while the replacements are coloured.

Well, tried a more direct approach. No bites yet.

Wonder how much it would be to respray a different Cup (properly)…

Your biggest challenge would be finding a decent bodyshop, I have yet to find one that can do a decent job and I have tried many. If you wanted it done properly it would have to be a bare metal repaint, any bodyshop that values its reputation wouldn’t trust what’s under the existing paint, particularly on an older car. You’d easily be looking at £10k+, it would probably be cheaper to do Topaz Skin or a wrap.

I guess a wrap would be the best option as it keeps some semblance of originality. And it protects the paint, unless it rips it off.

Haven't given up on M17CUP, though it might come to wandering around Maidenhead looking for familiar shapes under tarpaulins.
