    GSi Wheel Cap ID

    I just came back from my local VX dealer to see if they have some replacement wheel caps available. The chap behind the desk said he does not know which ones will fit the GSi and they need the two letter code on the back of one to find out and order me a replacement. Does anyone (norm29 maybe ) know or can find out for me, so I dont have to (or cant shall I say lol) remove a wheel to find out please?

    The other thing is 'why' I cannot remove a wheel? this is because I dont have the jack and socket kit anymore. I dont how or when it disappeared as it has never been used. I asked Vx for replacement and they said it will cost about £50 for a jack, screwdriver and the wheel nut remover bar. Is this reasonable asking price?

    Cheers all

    The spare wheel centre will be great mate. How much are you willing to accept for it and any chance you can get it to me before the end of next week?
