Default Center caps for factory wheels and Floor Mats

Are there any other style center caps for the factory wheels other than what I have on my 2000? I've seen another one here on someones car but they could have been custom made?

Also, I have the original floor mats with the SSEi logo in them but they are in the condition you'ld expect for 85K miles- I could not find them on the GMPARTS site (they have the carpets), anyone know if these are available anymore? Or am I relegated to going to my dealer?
Thanks!!

You can try eBay and see what you can find.

The SSEi branded floor mats might only be a dealer available item. I'm in need of replacing mine as well. If you find a source...post it up!

Ouchy! I could see that. I pulled all the wheels and checked pads and man, there is like no clearance on the front calipers. Easy to shorten a finger in there if not careful.

As far as your floor mats are concerned, they were still available at the Stealerships a few months ago and were less than $100 for the set of four.
