    Hi all, I'm not sure if I've posted this in the correct section (apologies if I haven't)
    I've just brought off E bay some 17 " Alpina replica wheels for my E36 tourer. The only thing is, one of the centre caps that covers the wheel nuts is missing. I've searched on E bay and a few other place's but I cant seem to find a replacement.
    Can somebody point me in the right direction, if you know where I should be looking please?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the link dude.
    I didn't think they would be that expensive, I only paid £90 for the wheels lol!

    They fall out, and get stolen a lot to replace others that have fallen out.

    You'd still have the centre badges to buy yet too!

    It measures 15.8cm across the length of the cap.

    hi Fazz - spooky!!!! I have also just bought a set of Alpina replicas with one centre cap missing which are for a Tourer!! Just getting them refurbed at the moment... Bear in mind that the link to the eBay post for the caps is for a set of four, so £50 divided by four comes to about £12.50 each... not as bad as it initially sounds...

    FwordM3 - if you have more than one available, I'll take one also :-)

    The caps are still with the wheels at the moment and I should get them back on Wednesday (no rush, pay day is Tuesday!!) so I'll measure the caps then, if thats ok...
