    I lost a wheel insert. The little BMW cap at the center, where does one buy these?

    You can buy them at a dealer.
    I'm guessing fig 5.
    P/N 36 13 6 768 640
    getbmwparts.com has them for MSRP 14.25, cost $11.40.
    I assume that is for 1.
    You can probably find knockoffs cheaper but the Roundel will probably fade and flake off.

    Little stuff like this is why I try to maintain a relationship with the dealer sales guys. I'd start there if you can with a line like, "Do you have an extra wheel insert laying around here?" It worked for me last year.

    wheel caps

    I pulled one of the other caps and the logo is a sticker on a plastic insert. The rim says RADIUS and I find that is an aftermarket rim made by EXEL. An old rim that is not made anymore. Funny, I have seen lots of Beemers with like rims. So, (as suggested) going to the dealer when convenient, or the U-Pullit where there are lots of rims to measure. I did spend alot of time searching for the rims and a supplier, it just didn't play out.

    Thanks for the input, it got me to the bottom line.

    Mike
