Miro 111 center caps?

Does anyone know who makes BMW center caps that fit the Miro 111's. Before I get flamed, I have searched and some say the size is 68mm, 65mm, 67mm??? I'm looking for just the plain blue and white roundel (No carbon fiber Look) and no stickers for the Miro caps. Vendors feel free to chime in if you have what Im looking for.

Not sure where to just buy the center caps. I just installed Miro 111's and Bavarian Exclusive included the ones tha you're looking for. You may want to give them a call and see if they can tell you how to get them. http://bavarianx.com/

I also got mine from Brad at BavX. Did you actually get center caps or just the stickers?

Here's a pic of the wheel on my car. It is full caps from what I can tell. I popped them out and they're a full cap.

From looking at your wheel, I think that if the center caps came mounted to the wheel, the stickers were already placed onto the Miro center cap when you recieved them. My wheels came with Miro caps but the roundel stickers where out of stock, so when they came in Brad sent me a set of sticker for the Miro caps.

They're not stickers from what I can tell. I popped one of the caps off and the BMW logo is unders a clear plastic cover.

I don't even see the Miro 111's on BavX's website?

Is this just a call and order situation?

Yes, call them. Not sure if they updated their website. You can also Google Bavarian Ecclusive + Miro + 111 and you'll get a few links to the E90 posts from them.

They are stickers, although metallic backing. I had to get an app for my droid phone to measure, so probably off a little. Popped the Miro stickers off the cap and I measure 64.5...maybe 65mm on the sticker that most ebay people sell. I think the 66mm is measuring the caps itself. I didn't see any 64.5mm stickers for sale, so I ordered the 65mm. Hopefully it fits right with no....modding.

i emailed Miro a year ago about center caps and they said there were no caps that costumers found that would fit my CSL reps

if there are some please post your findings because its complete crap that they are stickers. i would have never bought them if i knew that. not to mention the paint is pretty crapy. im getting them re-powder coated after just a year.

My OEM caps did not fit. It is close, but just a tiny bit too big. I ordered stickers off ebay. Went 65mm and just got em, fit perfect on the Miro caps.

These are the OEM



These are the Miro's with the Miro sticker removed



I went with the fake carbon caps in 65mm, think it was $22 shipped for 4. I was really wanting just the regular blue and white one, but they didn't have any in 65mm at the time





I was driving around without caps for a while




Think it looks much better now, although I may order the regular blue and white cap stickers still

I have the 111's and I bought the 65mm center cap stickers. I placed them on the plastic hub cap that came on the miro's but I had a problem when trying to snap the chrome ring back on around the cap. The sticker diameter was slightly too large and/or the sticker is too thick so I had to mod it by putting the chrome ring on the cap and then super gluing the sticker on over the ring. Anyone else run into this problem?
