    Hey people got my CLC washed the other day and the center wheel cap fell off and the pins are so messed up that it wont go back on..

    so i have been looking at them on ebay and for a set of 4 orignals are £34-ish which seems not to bad but does anyone have any idea on how much mercedes charge for them ?

    happened today so couldnt ring any part departments



    thanks in advance

    i would do that buddy but the others will look "old" compared to new ones ..

    that site sells 4 for £53 and ebay original ones can get purchased for £34-ish for all 4

    i might get the ebay ones and keep the old as a spare

    thanks for the link :cool:

    Plenty of fakes on ebay so beware. Around £12 each at a dealer I think, ring your local dealer and ask.

    Best thing to do is get a new set from the "japanese quality" advertiser on ebay. they do loads of merc accessories like this and are as good if not better than the oem ones that sometimes have a problem lasting longer than 3 years in some cases.
    As you suggest buy a set and use them, save the odd 3 if you want but they wont match exactly so you might as well bin them.....or become entrepreneurial and sell them individually on ebay as spares.......you never know..:)
    Cheers
