Default Nipple hubcaps in UK (or EU) anywhere?

I'm after a set of nipple hubcaps (4-lug) with the wolfsburg logo in full black (not embossed chrome/SS). They just dont seem to be anywhere here at all.



Before I cave in and pay an arm and a leg for shipping from the US, does anyone know of somewhere closer to home that carries them?

Cheers

PS I thought this topic would have been done to death, but searching "nipple" strangely gave off-kilter topics... odd that

Mmm that's what I'm after. 4-lug versions, the Paruzzi ones are for 67-on cars (mine is 69)

After a lot of searching (and google translating), eventually I jumped in and bought from the US. The versions in Europe aren't for 4-lug wheels (yet?). I'm really happy with the EMPI ones that arrived
