Has anyone checked out the BRABUS black wheel bolt caps that are shown on the German smart configurator? Might be the ticket for those with black wheels, and the BRABUS wheels, anyway.

I doubt they fit locking bolts! So, not me.

I love how the US price has an extra $10 profit margin!

At that price I'll stick with my plastic furniture leg tips.

Just did a currency conversion and the American ones are more expensive but only £5 when converted into uk, this could come from the fact the US suppliers doesn't have a proper amount of discount from his local merc dealer, another side note, the eBay ones *could* be fakes, and again with the ones from Germany the price could come frm the fact they have a good relationship with their local merc dealer....

Besides that $10 extra isn't bad considering if you want some they have to hire an aeroplane to bring your 12 covers from Germany, which last time I checked was more than $10! ;-p
