Wanted: AMG Penta Center Caps

Please help, I just got my new wheels today and need to complete them as the old center caps were broken and dirty. They are for the original wheels made by ATS Germany 8Jx16. Thanks!

Love my Benz.

You can get them from a dealer or *****************. The part number is
H WA 201 400 01 25. The letters are important.

None of the dealers here in Sacramento seemed to be able to find them....duh! I went through the MB dealership in Medford OR. and they found them in Germany for me and shipped them to my door. Great guys up there! Search my post for more info.

Good Luck!

Hey thanks much! I went and ordered them today at my local dealer. He said they would have to get them from Germany. Pretty pricey: $45 per. But what are you gonna do, have rims without center caps? I think not. Oh well... The parts guys let me in on what AMG really stands for: All your Money is Gone.

Love my Benz.

I could have gotten them for a good bit less that that for you :-P

Enjoy the new caps though, they're sharp looking!

Anybody else notice problems with quality? On one new set of mine, the center logo has started to fade away. The other set I have, still looks new.

No kidding? I wonder if one could apply a Small bit of sealant b/w the cap insert and the cap.. Or do you think it's UV related?

The letters are literally fading to black and blending in with the BG of the cap- I tracked the car with these wheels one day in the rain so I'm wondering if the extra heat from the brakes might have something to do with it.

How long have you had them on there? You would think, being an AMG part and all, that treatment such as that wouldn't have such a negative effect, no?

I haven't put a fresh set on a car yet, but I'll have to keep a close eye on how they hold up.

Considering they likely cost about 50 cents to produce you would think they could make these things Last.
