    Overnight, we’ve had all 4 chrome hub caps stolen off of our Gen 6. I don’t understand why someone would take them as there can’t be much of a market for them. Does anyone know how much they are to replace?

    If anyone knows or sees any being offered for sale in the Somerset/Bristol area, let me know.

    Sorry to hear that mate.

    They won’t be cheap to replace no doubt, hence probably why they have been swiped.

    Nowt safe these days

    Hi Stu, what did you end up doing? I have just lost two of mine after they weren't put back on properly after a tyre change.

    I have just called a Van center who list £66.11 +VAT EACH!

    Cheers,
    Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy. Sorry to hear you’ve lost yours as well.

    I haven’t replaced mine yet, as I got quoted the same price from VW. I’ve got a camera up now, but am worried if I replace them, they’ll get nicked again. I have looked into just getting some centre caps (that clip into the same place on the wheel) but can’t find any that fit. I’m also wondering if there’s some way I can put some sort of locking device, when I do replace them.
    A friend of mine can get the caps trade, for £275 for 4 / £68 each, but it’s still a lot of money.
    There’s also a guy on eBay selling two for £35.50 each + postage, however they are off a beetle & have a different part number. They’re also from 18” wheels, so I can’t see why they won’t fit.

    Thank you so much for your response. What a shame you don't feel like you can replace them.

    What are the part numbers for the Gen6 vs the Beetle? I only need two but it might be a bit of a risk unless I know for sure they are the same; I know that in some instances, parts can be the same with different numbers.

    Im not to sure how they attach but I'm guessing it's the same method as steel centre caps if this is the case the difference between a T6 and the beetle version could be the beetle ones might be 5x112 PCD

    We will replace them eventually, probably after we move house. The area we live in at the moment is getting hit quite hard for vehicle crime.
    The part number I was given for the van caps is
    W7ЕО 601 149 AQ ZQ
    The part number for the Beetle ones on eBay is 5C0601149 CQ ZQ
