    i have just bought some refurbished avus'.
    They are finished in a similar colour to the very centre of the cap (light gunmetal)

    the only downside to these is that the inner of the centre caps, ie; the audi logo bit. are not in very good nick.

    Looking at the back of the centres when removed, it looks like they have little tabs which would allow them to be split. has anybody tried this?

    I've done this, the small plastic tabs that held them on broke so had to superglue the Audi rings back on. Either way the centre cap looks as new and the rings arent going anywhere :)
