Centre caps for OEM mag wheels

Postby Hotdubz » Mon May 21, 2012 4:03 pm

Does anyone have part numbers for different centre caps that will fit the standard TDI rims? noticed today that one of my centre caps is missing and i need to replace it but want to see what else there is out there to offer before i buy a replacement.

Hey man
Just my suggestion as a possible alternative - you could try source a second hand centre cap from a scrap yard and just plug it in and put VW stickers over them? I know it's not the real deal and OEM and what not but I have the stickers on my car's centre caps and they look pretty cool. Might save you a couple bucks. Just a suggestion :smile: :hi:

I've been looking for part numbers but it's not that easy to get. I'll take a drive to vw tomorrow. Need to buy oil too

If anybody is perhaps still interested in this:

I have an '03 MK4 Golf with the "Long Beach" wheels on and the centre caps looked terrible.
Find your OEM wheel and specs here: http://www.4130-products.com/wheels/

I phoned around and, as luck would have it, only the stealership had them at R140 a piece!.

I then shopped around on ebay for the best prices and found them in Israel for R117 for all 4, including International shipping.
It took about three weeks for them to get here and you can see that they are slightly different (bulbous, not flat. VW lines are also a bit thicker. don't have the clips on the side for removal), but they fit perfectly and look fantastic.

55mm OEM part number: 6NO 601171 / 6HO 601171
