i was just looking at them last night.

if they made the full kit for the VZ i would have got one.
but for the VZ its just fluid lids :(

i reckon they would look good

A friend had a set of them on his ve ss, i didn't like them, they looked cheap and i'm sure there would be something nicer for your car for $330 :)

Think you'll find they are just covers for your plastic caps. Don't think you'll be getting an alloy cap......if that floats your boat then go nuts.

have you tried jegs (http://www.jegs.com/c/Chrome-Billet-Dress-Up_Engine/11337/10002/-1), they're an american retailer so you wouldnt get anything with HSV on it but plenty of choices there, IMO dress up kits are really for hot rods and dragsters but hey whatever does it for you, i think the black crinkle finish looks awesome in the right setting it may work under the bonnet of a HSV

Never look under my bonnet unless I'm working on her, I'd rather put that money to some go fast bits!!!!!
