Painted Headlight Washer Covers?

Anyone know a place that sells painted headlight washer covers? I've got a 2012 UG GTI and need the driver side cover, previous owned jacked it up and it flew off while I was driving.

Don't want to spend a ton of cash on such a stupid little thing... any tips? Do you buy them cheap and get factory touch up paint and do it yourself? lol... no clue, help me!

There's these but it looks like you'd have to paint them.

Get a sheet of color match vinyl from Klii motorwerkes, and do you side markers while you're at it.

Have you got headlight washers or are they blanks?

I just had to replace one of mine. They all come primed, and you have to have someone paint them. Best place I found to do it was vwpartsdept.com - they are Clarksville VW in Indiana. I think it cost me about $45 for the part and paint. Not sure what they would charge to ship it to you.

I've recently retrofitted factory Xenons along with AFS and full washer system, due to this I had to buy new covers to fit on the jets, I found a seller located in Germany on eBay that sells them new and painted, I'm CSG but he the closest he had were UG so I bought those and painted them (20gbp) each shipped, I'll try and find a link,

I also had these in my watch list on Ebay, don't know if you need blanks or Ines for jets though!! looks like it's free shipping to the US but that could be wrong, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Golf-VI...l2649#shpCntId

Painted Headlight Washer Covers?

These are the jet fitting type, it doesn't state the exact colour but the ones I received were definitely UG. They're genuine VW parts too.
