Hi ive just had some old dakar wheels bead blasted and re sprayed in black, to me there looking pretty moody which i like, but the inner wheel covers are shot and i,m having problems locating some new shiney ones ! can anybody help? the oringinal part number is... 7L6 601 149 b ive tryed my local vw van center in high wycombe but they dont seem to think they are avalible ! ive tryed looking on flea bay but sadly all seem to be a little small. they measure approx 70mm across the front and 62 mm across the back of the clips ! does any body know of any covers that might replace these? i could just get new stickers to go over the top but most of the clips are snapped off so was really looking to replace the whole thing!

many thanks for you time if you can help!

Hey Rob it took me 6 months to track a set down for a reasonable price! i paid little over 150 for a set of 4 in prettty much mint condition with 2 decent tyres!
I got them from some gutted guy in Warick who put them on e bay but only listed them as 8J 235 50 18's if hey had put them as 'vw darkar's' or vw alloys i reckon the bidding would have easily reached 5/600 mark as most of the other wheels do! So my guess search e-bay carefully ;)

cheers

Hope these part numbers help, when the parts guys put the 9 digit numbers in and there are multiple colour combinations, computer says no!!!
7L6 601 149 B Wheel cap came in 2 colour combination;
7L6 601 149 B QLD Satin silver metallic
7L6 601 149 B RVZ Black
Both have now been dropped and replaced with
7L6 601 149 B RVC Black/Anthracite metallic
They are 70mm in size if you can find any on the ‘bay.
