Default Reference

Since purchasing the FE wheels (D2/8.5"W) wheels from Norretal, I've opted to go all original since losing one of the centre wheel caps. I'll get the wheels refurbed at the same time.

My question is this: does the part number of [8D0 601 165K] relate only to the 8.5" width wheels or is it a generic part that fits a few OEM Audi wheels? I've seen parts listed with the code 8D0 601 165K but some seem to have an additional letter added to the end so I'm wondering what the differences (if any) are...

If anyone has a link for purchasing the original OEM centre caps for the 20" FE 9 spoke wheels, then I'm all ears.

There are different finishes (brushed or polished) so maybe the suffix letters refer to that?

If you need a spare in the meanwhile I may have a rather tatty one lying around unwanted and unloved. Let me know and I'll check.

The cap is used extensively across pretty much every model from 1997 onwards. It fits 17, 18 and 20" variants of the 9-spoke wheel, plus loads of others. The suffix is the colour code as Andrew mentions, as there are also a few variants of that too. 7ZJ is grey metallic for the 20" FE versions. There's also 1H7 which is plain silver, and Z17 which is Avus silver, and more.

Most of these caps come in at around 25-30 from TPS. I can ask for a price if you like?

Thanks Andrew and MJ

Thanks for your offer HPsauce. I appreciate it but I'm going to purchase a set of 4 brand-spanking new ones.

I'd like to take you up on the offer MJ, as the OCD trait in me dictates that I need to get this situation sorted asap hehe. My preference would be the silver code 1H7 which I'm sure is what my current wheels match. We can PM each other so that I can arrange funds?

Just like to pass on a note of public thanks for MJ's assistance on this one. My new wheel centre caps are perfect and look just the part. These things make a big difference to my car and now it just looks 'right'.

Cheers.

I'd love to see an A8 LWB D2 at one of our meets - I nearly bought one many moons ago but it had very high mileage, but they are becoming super rare now - that one looks particularly clean so congrats!

The pic of her standing in the street is a better pic for showing her elegance and lovely shoes than the one in your sig, Jonny
