Grey or charcoal black?

I don’t know if you can buy the locking nut caps separately or only as a full set of 20.

Grey locking nut cap is 4M0 601 173 A
Grey wheel bolt cap is 4M0 601 173 D

I bought some individual grey covers for the non locking nuts as spares when I collected the car last year, so you do not need to buy a set.
Just checked e-bay and you can get a full set of 20 after market caps and in some cases original caps for £7 inc p&p. I know what I'd buy at the moment.

So you already had the parts on your wheels anyway and could have simply pulled a few off to check instead of asking?

Timely post. Had all my shield off the last couple of days, for full clean and protect, inside and out. Noticed I have lost a few as well, some locking nut versions, and some not.

looks like time to pull them off and get part numbers and begin the search.

Mines a 2019, S3 as well.

Cheers. Just checked mine, part numbers ending in C and E. Round ones for locking nuts and hexagonal for the others. Start searching

Hi. Mine are as below, so yes hexagonal bit inside, but set well down for locking nut version. Locking version on the left, standard on the right.
