    My father borrowed my e28 so he can have his e34 serviced for a few days. When he dropped off the car at my house, I noticed two center caps were missing. I then approached the other side and saw that the other two were missing as well :mad:. I hope whoever stole them are happy with them at least. Does anyone have a set of center caps (e34 basketweave style-535i and 95 525i version)? Yes, I did look on mye28 but nobody haz them for sale. Looking for a deal since I am still unemployed :rolleyes:

    That's why you have to do what I did; paint the centers Nogarosilver and leave the lip silver. This way, nobody's gonna steal those caps and have mismatched caps on their wheels! :p

    Do it when it gets warmer outside in the driveway.

    My father lives in a very quiet neighborhood so I doubt it was at his place. I suspect it was done at his job. It is a very big parking lot (IBM) but they also have plenty of temp workers from Manpower so I believe a temp worker took them for his/her E34.

    I haz this on my mind but here is how it would go down:

    Me: I see/approach beater e34 and I see my center caps on it
    Security Guard: Sir, what are you doing?
    Me: I am taking my center caps back because this guy stole em!
    Security Guard: Your under arrest!
    Me: :mad:

    If they sent you the wrong kind, let me know. It has happened to someone else I know and I actually needed the ones he got.

    Will do. However, if they are wrong, then :mad::mad::mad::mad:
