    Can anyone tell me what size the bonnet and boot badges are on an M roadster I've lost mine somewhere in the garage :( Also can anyone point me in the direction of getting some 50mm wheel centre badges not sure of the quality of the ones on ebay.

    Thanks Daz

    Daz I would be wary of ebay ones unless someone has a good recommendation.... I bought some and they were beyond naff and went nowhere near Zippy. I just went to the dealers and bought oem...

    The ones I bought looked inferior and were not a good fit despite being the correct size.. there were out a couple of mm and actually moved in the centres. :(

    I bought some ebay wheel centre badges with the plastic surrounds and the clips didn't fit, not even close. Managed to get the centre metal part out and fitted into my original BMW plastic surrounds, but a few months later they are starting to corrode. I'll be going to BMW for replacements in the future. Ebay = buyer beware!

    Trouble is my alloys are aftermarket and have 50mm centrecaps did bmw do them in this size? If I can find some good self adhesive centres I can fit them to the original caps. Someone must have bought some at some point? :-?

    Don't get me wrong I'm all for buying OE but what I'm getting at is BMW wheel badges only seem to come in 68 or 64mm my aftermarket wheels have 50mm centres so I need to source somewhere that has these.

    Wheel centres sometimes have to be aftermarket due to size
    But badges OEM always
    Happy hunting

    Sounds naff do they do stickers for wheel centres
