Question rotary wheel center prices!?!

Did prices for accessories just change or something?

I was just going to order the rotary wheel centers thinking they would look really good with a black car and the retail price is $150 for 4... or through Trussville $116?!? I don't want to buy the whole wheel for crying out loud. What are they made out of? Titanium? Berilyium? Space age unobtanium?

The ones with the Mazda logo on are $5 a piece! Am I missing something here? How by removing the Mazda logo and placing a rotor on increases the price by 500%??

They were initially listed for approx. $30 -- but this was confusing because it was $30 EACH I had them ordered from Trussville until the EACH part was realized. Rational given was that these are RX-8 exclusives unlike the standard which fit on every Mazda -- I guess you really do pay for exclusivity.
