self Leveling Center caps

Hi
I have a Mini One Seven 2006 model, I try to keep my car in the best condition possible much like many of you on this site I'm sure. The center caps are beginning to look a bit worn after 13 years I think its time to replace them, but I want to improve them and make the center caps to self level like the Rolls Royce and Bentley center caps. Does anyone know which ball baring or a technique to use to allow this to happen as I cant find any suggestions online on how to make this work.

Hmmmm.... Interesting move........

I would say the easiest way forward if you are looking to do this would be to use a cap with the mechanism in it already and use a MINI sticker on it..... See here for example...

You may need to dig around to find a size match first.
