[s-cars] In need of one Avus center cap

I have to say I really don't know, Tony, but I suspect that it is not
the same part. My experience says Audi has a part made and puts a
part number on it; all
wheels that use that cap identify it by the same part #. I don't know
of any identical parts that Audi identifies with different part
numbers. ETKA may be telling
you it fits the wheel, but it probably does not match the original caps.
I have found that the cap is substantially cheaper at www.genuinevwaudiparts.com
if you have a way to handle the shipping. I come back to this
because most of
the available used caps are going to be 12 to 14 years old; so the
plastic clips are going to be getting brittle and almost all will have
cosmetic issues as well. They
should be cheaper, but in the end, will probably cost as much as a new
