Volkswagen got the caps like on Rolls-Royce and Bentley

Ironically, they don’t fit the Phaeton sedan

Self-leveling central wheel rim inserts first appeared on Rolls-Royce, then on Bentley, and now finally came down to the Volkswagen “popular” brand.

Self-leveling central inserts in the rims are traditionally considered to be a detail from the world of the most luxurious and expensive cars, because it is not without reason that they appeared on such brands as Rolls-Royce and Bentley! While the rest were content with cheap plastic caps, the British flaunted solid metal inserts with a bearing inside. As the name implies, the brand emblem in such inserts is always in the same position, regardless of whether you are driving or standing.

Now, such a prestigious accessory has appeared in the VW catalog, although it is not compatible with the representative sedan Phaeton, as well as with the Touareg crossover – the inserts are only suitable for discs with hub caps under catalog number 5G0601171XQI. A set of four self-leveling central inserts will cost, of course, not cheap: in Europe, Volkswagen dealers sell it for 174 euros
