15" Hubcaps

I think I am very wrong here, so please correct me

My understanding is there is no such this as a 15" VL Hubcap.

Well what happened when you bought a VL V8 Berlina? It had to be optioned with mags or something ??? As the V8's came with rear disc brakes from factory.

Or is needing to goto a 15" rim due to the front discs?

the 15" was required for the front brakes too. I only just realised the other day that i have a 14" spare tyre in the boot, useless if i get a blown front :S

Also NA VLs such as BT1s that were upgraded with the larger brakes and 15" wheels may have come with 'turbo' hubcaps.

Not really, just change 14 onto back, and take 15 from back onto the front. Not recommended to have one side 14, other side 15 - but it'd get you out of a tight spot if needed.
