You stated that the 'central bezels are for lhd cars' & therefore this implied that these couldn't be Zender. I was agreeing with you but now you've said that you believe they might have been deleted from Alfa's catalogue, so they might be Zender after all?
I only said they 'looked like Autodelta', which they obviously do.
I have an Autodelta 1998 pricelist showing these accessories available then & a purchase invoice from 2000 showing them when fitted to the '97(supercharged) car pictured.
I think we're getting our lines crossed Clive
Obviously Jano was an agent for Zender, unless he used a different supplier, which is entirely possible. Presumably post-2004 he is using a different supplier, for obvious reasons.
As far as Alfa are concerned, they used Zender products directly in their catalogue. Items such as the fuel filler cap and exhausts all have Zender clearly printed on them in the catalogue. On the fuel filler cap for instance it clearly shows 'Zender Alfa Sport' printed boldly in the Alfa catalogue. Zender were the official 'sporty upgrade' for Alfa Romeo accessories, and were officially marketed as such.
Clearly for the instrument bezels (both mph/rpm binnacles and the central bezels) these 'chrome' items were not needed for the P2 Alfas as Alfa Romeo gave a little bit of 'matt silver' for the main instruments, with the subsidiary central ones 'recessed' so no cowling here at all. Hence their deletion from the 1999 brochure (which obviously covers mainly P2 cars). I say 'mainly' because other P1 items are available - control knobs and the central vents for instance. Presumably Alfa Romeo had old stock on the inventories and wanted to get rid of them? The previous availability of the Zender chrome bezels is also evident in the brochure: the rpm instrument bezel is clearly shown in the shot for the air vents and the control knobs, but intriguingly the central bezels above them have been amateurishly 'blackened out' - no doubt a primitive solution to 'pre-photo shop' days.

Note in the photos all examples are LHD models. This doesn't mean anything as only LHD models were used in the UK brochure.
Either way, whether they're Zender, Autodelta, or whoever, they do look good, much better than the originals. I think Clive there may be the very slightest possibility that we may at least in part agree on that one.
