Anybody got them and any good or gimmicky? My only thoughts are weights may cause a bit of wear vibration on outside edge of wheel centres and let in moisture.

thought to mention that BMW's website recommends that they fit them for you
No need, it's one of the easiest jobs you'll ever do
Put a bit of tape over the end of a flathead screwdriver, (to save scratching thee old one if it slips) prise off the existing ones and pop the new ones on
2 minute job !

I would always take the wheels off personally and push from the other side rather than prise off. About to get my wheels refurbed and even though head says no will get them recut with diamond cut finish, so last thing I want to do after dreaded whiteworm would be to disturb the clear coat near the edge of the centres.

Ok I see and accept your view on that
If you are taking the wheels off anyway then fine, but if just replacing the caps then that is a lot of work
You dont have to "dig" the screwdriver in , just edge it in and turn
There are also a lot of plastic prying tools, which are better to use than a screwdriver but I don't thave one !

Fortunately not many cars can keep up with a 335d even as standard, so they won’t notice
