Hey scollins -> Black/Silver Carbon Fiber Emblems on Sparkling Graphite.

I read in an older post that you were thinking about getting some.

IMHO, a must have mod . . . especially on graphite.

Some photos on my E92 below. (more pics in my garage)

Nice! I like it a lot. Yeah, I've been thinking I need the full set. I've even been toying with the idea of a CF grill too. I don't want to go overboard with unpainted CF though.

Which set did you buy? Also, is it the full replacement wheel center cap, or where you have to disassemble the existing one to replace the filler?

I bought the complete set from M-Force Design and chose the "aftermarket center caps" option. I took a gamble and they fit the Linea Corse wheels perfectly. The OEM caps wouldn't fit.

I still have the original Linea Corse caps. You are welcome to test fit those. If they fit your Advans then the M-Force ones should fit your wheels as well.

Another photo of the cap on my wheel below.

Thanks, but the Advans are totally screwball on center cap size. They are actually 73mm, so I've ordered the adapter ring from Advan to use the stock 68-69mm size. Some aftermarket wheels use a 65-66mm center cap, like the Linea Corse.

I've got plans for Blacklines too (E90.) I'm just waiting for a few things to clear up in the next few weeks. Hopefully by mid-November, I'll have a ridiculous amount of mod money stashed away.

Not enough to mod my 335i E90 into an M3 E90 though, sadly...
