Default Center caps, Crest or Turbo?

I was researching the differences between the '97 and '96 turbos and came across this in Wiki:
Standard wheel center caps that said "turbo" (the 1996 version had Porsche crests)
My car is a '96 and I have the standard wheel caps that say "turbo". I really don't believe that they have been swapped, but was wondering if this was a difference between Canadian and U.S. models. Mine is a Canadian model.
Which caps do you guys have on your wheels?

Coloured crests were an extra cost option in the UK in place of the standard 'turbo' caps.

Same here in the good ole' USA. Option code 445 or 446 and it was reportedly a $224 option.

I think the "Turbo" caps would have been standard no matter what model year.

I have the "turbo" caps on my '97. I have the silver crest on the hood, so this looks best (not mixing gold and silver), IMHO.

97 with Colored Wheel Crests, but my sticker shows option code 446. I'm assuming the standard was the Turbo caps.

Edit: US Car

Turbo center caps on mine -97. Factory option sticker shows colored wheel crests however. A previous owner changed them (445). Thinking of buying new colored wheel crests for my second hollow spoke set. Are the new ones the same as the factory option ones?

96 TT. Turbo script caps. I'd like to see a pic of the silver hood emblem.
