I recall a few people getting them trough vw parts for a relatively low cost. Try to do a search you might hit pay dirt!

1stvwparts.com That's where I got mine. $20.68 a piece. I can't put a link to the direct part, but just search "tow eye". I ended up getting one extra so both front spots are full and then I use a the hitch receiver with a shackle.

I bought one for about $45 from the dealer. (AU more expensive than US) I first tried rigging / truck shops for a generic one but unfortunately 17mm is an odd thread size, especially when it's LEFT HANDED !!

Thanks all for the replies, if the dealer only charges around $45 it's hardly worth while buying them in the US as when shipping is added there's not much difference.
I will contact my dealer and see what he quotes me for one.
