CSL rep centre caps

Post by samZ4M » Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:45 pm

Genuine 68mm centre caps on my CSL reps from CMWheels sit like this, it doesn't look right. Should I get 65mm? Surely it should be flush with the wheel?

Looking at the side profile, they are sitting 'correctly'. What caps did you buy Lynchy?

Mine are the same as yours Sam and it's really frustrating! I wanted flat ones so it all looked OEM

Mine are 10 pin. Looking at the difference, it's clear the 'click' is wrong.

Looking on RealOEM there are 2 part codes: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpar ... Id=36_0977

The part code for CSLs is the same as what I got: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showpar ... Id=36_0698

I've asked the seller, who is a BMW dealer, so may get an answer. I'll fit the wheels sans centres incase I can return them. Infact, the ones on my old wheels might fit, so I'll play about.

Just remember that your (mine also) wheels aren't original csl ones though, could be the issue...
