Thanks for your effort
Apologies if my post came across as a bit brash! I was only trying to help.

Rs. 900 for one cap is grossly expensive since VW charges Rs. 500 (and thereabouts) for one replacement cap. If you can post a clear image of the cap, that would be really helpful. Did you check all the links for the Hyundai caps from AliExpress? All the caps have a convex shape with the logo at the center bulging out a bit.

Besides, the dealer would ship the caps in a pack of 4 so you could replace the rest of the caps if you cannot find the stock replacement cap. Do cross check with an alternate Hyundai service center for the pricing.

No, I did not get the cap. I have these GTR alloys with the sports badge. The same set of alloys are there in the shop with a different cap (silver in color, not black) and I am ready to buy those but the shopkeeper says that he cannot sell them alone. The last resort for me is to search for them in JC road, Bangalore. ebay.uk had some caps with the same dimension but they cost a bomb.

Hi,
Lost one centre cap on my alloys.. Bought one with the same measurement from Ali express but does not fit. PM me if any one of you wants it, you can take it after trying it out on your wheels..
