Volkswagen owners now have a new must-have accessory to add to their vehicle.

For just £156.00 you could have a set of self-levelling VW-branded alloy wheel centre caps after Volkswagen added the new accessory to their list of extras.

Their self-levelling function means that the VW roundel is always the correct way up, no matter the speed of the car or the position of the wheel. They can be retrofitted to any wheels able to accept VW’s standard-fit 5G0601171XQI hub caps, and can be ordered through your local Volkswagen retailer.

Volkswagen’s new trinket could be the perfect present for those with an OCD tendency.  “If you’re after a touch of that super-expensive segment on your Volkswagen, or if you just want to quell the niggling irritation of badges pointing in different directions to one another, being upside-down or not being perfectly horizontal when parked, then these are definitely for you”, explained James Woolfe, head of Accessories and Merchandise for Volkswagen UK.
