PostSubject: Centre caps :(   24th October 2009, 14:34

Went out to my car this morning to find that someone has decided to pinch one of my centre caps (i think that is what they are called anyway haha)!
it didn't 'fall off' as i cleaned my wheels yesterday and it was there!

Anyway can you buy these from BMW? are they called centre caps? and does anyone know prices?
i have these wheels no idea there identification. I'm useless haha



any help greatly appreciated Smile


thankyouuuu

Pop into your dealer and get them to quote for one, then ask them the past number and then you can shop around Very Happy

That sucks Li. You probably are best going to the dealers though. Centre cap is a fine description! Very Happy

Yeah i got that when i went to order the mirror caps,
they asked me loads of questions, and asked me fpr some ID to check the name,
i think they thought id stolen it or something
Why id be buying mirror caps for a stolen car i dont know but there we go!

Hope you get the wheel thingys sorted
