Left my car at a friends house tucked away for new years as i was drinking came back to find my VW emblems stolen off my wheels... I have tried ebaying them but can't find the sentre caps anywhere? Has anyone got any ideas? The wheels look like....



Thanks in advance.

i'm told the one's from HK aren't genuine even if they say they are, tho i've never had any, however when you get them you may need to bend out the clip-on bit to make them stay on the car properly

these centre caps are among the larger ones on vw alloys, and therefore when they perish, they're much more noticable than smaller centre caps, meaning the thieving little runts that want new ones will steal your nice clean ones

best thing to do is try to catch them in the act, and cut their fingers off.... with a spoon

i desperatley need one of these! rang up the stealers and there £13!!!
my car looks really odd with one missing, but i thought £13 was extortionate for what it really is, keeping my eye out on fleabay, but nothings come up as of yet after months [brick]

All centre caps (for wheels with a nut cap like these and AVUS ones) are £13 each from VW, its mad!

to cover the nuts beneath?
obviously, but i mean why steal them?

what sort of a low life simpleton would think to steal centre caps, wheels, sterio i can understand but thats so petty. how much crack will curley joy give you for centre caps?
Why would you steal anything is my view? And I know that is shared by many others.

And it is obvious why, there are 3 poss reasons....

1-The thief owns a golf with similar wheels and hopes these will fit

2- They did it for 'a laugh' and because 'they could'

3- They are criminally insane and wanted a small skull cap to wear, but thought that a car should not have 4 all to itself and stole the VW skull caps.

You forgot reason number 4 mate: "Some people are just ar$£holes."

In recent years, many people overlook this point, and often come out with some "syndrome" to excuse the behaviour.

is it just me thats thnking its only £13, if you really want one, buy one.
It may only be £13 but times that by 4 13x4= 52! So becuase some git decided they want them (probably to throw away) I have to pay £52? This is why this country should be levelled and started again! Piss take thanks for your help though guys! :(

they took all of them?!

sorry mate i thought it was only 1, some scrote nicked 2 of the irmscher centre caps off of my missus vectra but luckily they are half the cost of yours. i tried ordering some from the local dealer but they didn't bother in spite of me chasing them for them over a couple weeks.
