Wheel centre caps needed

Post by Gus247 » 18 Dec 2013, 09:56

morning all,

just finishing (finally!!) the refurb on my Type 3 reps and need a couple (or indeed a set) of centre caps... had a look on the Bay of e to no avail sadly..

Pictured below is the cap I need complete with tape measure for scale...

It appears to measure 74mm across....

Ideally I'd like black centres, either BMW logo or Schnitzer...

any help much appreciated :)

Great use of the tape measure there mate. Just in case I didn't believe you when you said 74mm :))

Have you tried Lorcan at ACS, I'm sure Lewy bought some caps from him a while back

I have 3 (!) 74m B&W bonnet/boot emblems - which are copies so the sticker is separate. If you have or can get the actual centre mount you could affix these......but only to 3 wheels!!
