Hi All,

The plastic caps on my wheels are looking a little warn and the paint has come off them.

I currently have these:
http://www.partsformercedes-benz.com/product_info.php?cPath=69_727&products_id=3950

Anyone know the best place to get these from in the UK? Preferably official parts. Would be nice if they were cheaper than those linked too.

Also can anyone recommend any different ones?

Thanks,

Adam.

P.S. Apologies if this is a re-post - I did do a search beforehand though.

I got these from Ebay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/4X-SET-3INCH-MERCEDES-BENZ-BLACK-STRLE-CENTER-CAPS-WHEEL-E-S-CL-ML-SL-CLK-SLK-/200917161272?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ec7989538&vxp=mtr

Will post pics soon and the link.
For $13.50 for a set of 4 caps + free shipping you definitely can't go wrong!
They look cheap at a first glance but fit perfectly! Even tighter than my OEM ones. My OEM ones have seen better days and I just bought replacement ones since I lost one cap and it started looking ugly to me. The age has done its job - the MB logo is glued to the caps and it dries out. When I was removing the old OEM ones all of them popped the logos with a slight touch of a flat-head screwdriver so I'm glad I replaced them! Other way I'd lose the other ones too :D

I got black ones and they perfectly match the color of my car. Although, I think the silver ones like these will fit better the light color :D

Hi Adam

I got some centre caps off UK Ebay & they did not fit ,they were too tight & broke when trying to put them in . If you do go for the ebay one do not buy the cheapest .
Your best bet is as i did take them apart & respray them , this way you have OEM caps & the colour you want . They come apart easy & go back together the same .

Cheers

Andy

Thanks! They do look good! May go for them.

Would prefer them in blue though - that seller only seems to do black.

He does silver as well. I'd contact the seller I'm sure he could do a custom color if you ask. GC
