Centre Caps

Post by Tommo61 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 6:07 pm

Just had my MV2's refurbed and the centre caps now look decidedly tatty!

What do I need (dia.) and where do I get them? - There's a lot of stuff on eBay for <£10 which for BMW accessories seems too good to be true!

Does anyone have any recommendations? - I'm looking for the original blue/white look, not black etc.

Thanks.

petty much all the aftermarket ones are similar quality so at this price you can replace whenever required , otherwise its £45 for a set of originals that in reality don't seem to last much longer

I got 3 sets :)

Cunning plan involving the perfect set on my 335D which may just all simultaneously fall off and land in a drawer in my garage, whilst it eventually passes back to the dealers with a perfectly good replica set :evil:

What a bargain - I thought I was doing well getting a set for a fiver!

At that price it doesn't really mater if they only last a year or two.
Coupes because stunning!
