    I need to source some nice Seat alloy centre caps.
    I've recently lost one and, anyway, the colour had all peeled off them all.
    I need them with an external face diameter of around 60mm and the bit behind the face around 56mm

    I see them on ebay but I cannot be sure of the quality - can anyone suggest a good source?

    Thanks

    Hi Tada I got mine for the MK1 off eBay they were silver with red seat emblem rather than the standard black with silver s at emblem, they have been on a year now and so far only little sign of chipping but the is used every day all through winter so I'm happy with them, unlike the R badges which are faded after just a year.

    Surely if you spray them with a clean coat of lacquer they will not fade so quickly.

    I bought a set of black ones with chrome seat logo off eBay and they were decent quality. I think they were from china and did the job.
