    Replacement grey plastic wheel nut caps

    Hello All

    Hoping one of you kind folk might be able to help?

    Would anyone have an idea as to where I might be able to purchase a full set of grey plastic wheel nut caps for a 2008 Sportback?

    The car is going back to the leasing company soon and I've noticed that the caps have gone a little discoloured due to I think the local car wash using a harsh wheel cleaning fluid (lesson learnt). Would prefer not to go via the local dealer if I can help it?

    Many thanks !

    Yep, I bought a few the other week from Audi... paid about £1.20 for 4 or 5 I think.
    Make sure you specify whether you want caps for normal wheel nuts or locking wheels nuts as they are different.

    If you don't want to go via your local dealer then you can order via the Stoke Audi parts website (Google it). They are dead cheap but to be honest if it's to satisfy the leasing people I really wouldn't bother because I doubt it will bother them.

    Many thanks all. Never realised the dealership cost would be so cheap.

    Can't believe Audi sell anything for 12p. I'm sure I was charged more than that for oxygen the last time I was in the dealers.
