Unhappy HUBCAPS!!!! - please can you help?

Hey all,

I can't believe some people now days.

Was down in a little town called "seaton" (devon) with my girlfriend the other day. Parked up in a car park and went for a walk. Came back 20 mins later to find that damn youths (i;m only 20) - had knicked 2 of my hubcaps!!! -

I really need to find 2 others but don't know where to look. I've tried some scrap merchents but nothing so far. I'd really appreciate any help you can give.


Its a : Fiat Brava SX100 W reg (2001)

thanks for taking time out to read this

Re: HUBCAPS!!!! - please can you help?

I have just thrown out those exact ones. I think they must be standard I had them on both my bravas. Mine were quite curbed and the paint was flaking off two of them though - The other two were ok but both in worse nick than the one in your photo.

I'm unsure if my dad has skipped them yet... they might be already gone. If they're still there you can have them, But I wouldn't think you'd want them anyway.

I chucked them out and bought a set for £7.50 from wilkinsons, they look loads better. Trouble is they are well bling I need to either clean the car or make the hubcaps dirtier.
