Screwing around?

Can anyone identify these screws and suggest a supplier please? They are plentiful in my 'bus so I assume they are original VW, but I have not been able to find them anywhere. Approx 15mm in length with a plastic cap clipping to the collar on the screw.
I'm hoping they aren't SA specific..... Image

I don't know about be specific, bit they look very like self drilling screws. Screwfix etc. The plastic cap looks different though, don't know about that.

They look like number plate screws to me from the days before china started making everything

To me I think you are both right I think they are self drilling number plate screws.

Thanks for the replies, folks. I don't think they would be long enough for number plate screws. Less than 10mm of thread.
It would appear, though, that my search is likely to be futile.

they are special VW screws to be used with the plastic caps, Im not sure if they were made in different sizes, this one is for the bottom of the jump seat
