    Default Wheel bolt covers

    The standard black plastic ones. Some of mine are looking a little chewed (not me) - can these be bought singly from the dealers? What price roughly?

    Thanks

    I think they sell them in packs of 4 about 4 quid.
    Better looking on Ebay their is allways some for a lot less.

    Thanks

    I had to buy a couple last year when I had 2 of mine fall down a drain and I did'nt fancy shoving my arm into the filth to recover them...lol

    Mine was sold seperately and were I think 2.69 each. which I thought was rather pricey.
    As the other poster mentioned there are other options available on Ebay, I've been looking at these myself, due to the fact that my black nut covers seem to have gone white, I suspect its the wheel spray that the guys in the car hand wash use, it seems to have affected the plastic, so I shall probably give them a quick spray of black paint.

    Did the new set off ebay go whitish too or are they okay, which ones from ebay did you get.

    Lastly you are correct, the VX ones do come in different lenghts. Long (30mm) & Short (20mm) . The original ones are 30mm long.

    Mine looks like they have had some white paint spilt on them, They have been fine for 2 years and suddenly gone like it, I think it may be the wheel cleaner that they spray on at the Hand Car Wash I've been using, cant think of anything else that may have caused it.
