non- yellowing cf roundels

Does anyone know where to buy CF roundels that do not yellow? I have purchased on ebay and other web sites replacement cf roundels for my car. All of the 82mm (hood) roundels yellow but the rest, trunk and wheel hubs are just fine. Any help?

Can't remember where I bought them from. I'll look to see where I got them from and let you know.

Sadly, I may have to agree. My corner lights are cracking, my LED bulbs for said corner lights didn't work properly (even with resistors), the angel eyes fell apart (literally)...

Sorry Khoalty... but that's just what I got from you guys. I thought about buying the Eagle Eyes LED taillights from you, but... I dunno...
