I have never really warmed to the flat circular indent on the Sport models so, for my Roadster, Vic Champness Kindly made me a vented panel to fit. If I could only get the picture to load, you would see that it looks as if it was always there. Ten extra louvres now.

Can’t wait for the price list, I’ll get the tin snips out. Might be able to grease the rear of the springs!

Didn't you have the factory fitted louvered disc with the high level brake light when you ordered the car? I ask because the photo posted of the car at BHM shows the holes around the the rim of the spare wheel aperture.

Yes Paul, the P4 does have that but I have a 2010 Roadster too and the new panel is for that.

Ah I see. Out of interest how have you fixed the panel to the Roadster?

It is fixed with eight s/s screws, washers and small rubber tap washers, which look very good.I will not be taking it off but I did try putting the screws in place on the original flat back. and it looked fine.
At the moment I can't get the Tag site to load a photo but I will post one eventually.

I have that option with a spare wheel so I can change the look.
Only problem is the disc has rubbed away some of the paintwork which is proving a problematic to touch up.
Possibly I overtightened the screws when using the louvered disc.
It's certainly something to be aware of.

I would be inclined to use a strip of clear paint protector film around the edge if there's a chance of paint abrasion.
