You sure about that? I think those 21" wheels looks awesome!


The funny thing is that I have the roof spoiler lip but I haven't decided yet if I'm going to put them on.

edit2: atomic80- hey bud, in case your BMW center cap position bothers you and you want to line up the BMW directly above the M emblem logo, you just have to use your fingers and turn the cap since it's magnetized; there's no need to get a center cap tool or lift the vehicle and pop it out from behind. I figured this out a few days ago when I put on the M emblem logo.

Lol OCD much? Now I'll have to check mine too

The center caps usually clip in. You saying they're no longer clips just magnetic?

LOL! I didn't even see this until Chris mentioned it. Nah...I'm not THAT much of a OCD. I'm fine with it the way it is. You'd love the Rolls Royce Phantom since the "RR" center caps always is upright even when driving.

So wait, the phantom has "spinners" lol? I guess it would be the opposite of spinners .. Gotta love over engineering. Ask and someone will make it!

HAHAHAHA, you guys are hilarious. I missed a lot of comments. Yes, I guess, I get a tiny bit OCD with my cars, lol. The caps do clip in, but they stay put because they are magnetized. I got a hub cap tool remover (dumbest thing I ever bought- it was too thick and almost scratched the side of the hub cap - I got lucky I didn't push too hard). As I was touching it to feel the scratches, I got the idea to use the nail filer portion of my pocket knife because it has dull sides and it worked so easily by fitting into that tiny slit between the rim and hub cap and it popped right off. I then put it back on and as I adjusted, I realized they don't clip into a specific slot. So I turned them all after figuring this out. Super easy. Just use your index finger and thumb around the top and bottom edges and twist.

Phantom technology...lol. I guess when you pay that much of a premium, that's the LEAST they can do .
