Carbon Fiber Wheel Caps - Which Ones to Buy?

Hi folks,

Just ordered carbon fiber hood/trunk emblems from JBSpeed, but decided not to go with their wheel caps, because those don't come with a chrome ring, but with a thick cream-colored plastic ring around them instead.

Searching the forums, I saw that there are a lot of different caps available, but it's hard to tell which of them are actually nice when you see them in person.

Which vendor has a nice-looking, high-quality set of "carbon fiber" looking caps with chrome rings that you've actually seen on a car?

They'd replace the OEM caps (68mm? BMW part no. 36136783536) on my 2012 E92 w/313-style wheels.

Thanks!

I went with black and white center caps for my wheels since I don't have visual carbon fiber on the side of my car just yet. But it was some random vendor from ebay
