If they are genuine caps they should have a part number on the reverse unless you don't have any on your current wheels. Or find the alloy wheel part number on the inside of the wheel and search for caps for that wheel number.

I eventually found some at the scrapyards in Birmingham for a slightly different design wheels. And ended up respraying them because they were in a sorry state. If you already have dodgy ones you might as well start with some sand paper, masking tape, primer, alloy silver paint and lacquer.

Do check ebay too. You might also get tempted with a larger wheel set too :)

Wonder if the Jetta Eos ones here are the same?

Yeah that's the ones, but its the centre VW badge and chrome surround that has gone manky, and they are a fixed part of the whole cap, so its the whole cap or nothing, not as simple as just a re-spray I'm afraid.

Unfortunately one of the rarest caps to find intact and not costing an arm and a leg for each one brand new.
