Valve Stem Caps

Has anyone found a nice metallic valve stem cap with an MB logo that has a plastic insert to prevent corrosion and fuzing itself to the valve stem?
I have really nice N2 caps that the dealer installed on my CPO, but would consider replacing these green caps with a nice MB logo.
The plastic insert (i.e. with plastic threads) is crucial, as I have experienced the issue of breaking a valve stem because of a standard metal caps (with metal threads).

I got Real Mercedes-Benz Wreath Caps from the dealership and put them on the E-Class and the ML. They look great.

If you are worry about the cap getting stuck, just put some never seize on it.

Yep, using anti-seize is my second choice. I'd just prefer caps with a plastic insert; I really like these N2 type that I have now, I just want to find them with an MB logo.
