Anyone know the correct size for Monza 18”?

I had centre caps for VW already for my VR6 but they don’t fit my GTI.. You can get either 65 or 60mm. I’ll measure it tonight but wondered if anyone knew

You can get copies from eBay for a fraction of the price of those from VW.
They might come up a little small however if you wrap some insulating tape around the clips that hold then on the wheel they work a treat  :happy2:

That's for the mk7 version of the centre caps, different design has a silver circle around the vw badge. 3B7601171 XRW for the mk5 design, get genuine caps or they'll corrode very quickly.

I’ve found that genuine caps corrode just as quick as copies, and considering you can get a set on eBay for not much more than a £5 is better value imo.
