M Badges for Replica Alloys (313)?

Hi,

I just recieved my replica 313 alloys but the indent for the M badge/sticker is bigger than the oem size!

It roughly measures 24mm by 14mm. Where can I get badges to fit? Tried ebay but the are all the oem size?

Cheers

Tricky...

If you can't fit the OEM ones in the middle of the indent, maybe just leave them blank?

The oem fits but its far too small! It looks stupid!

Annoying!

Why is it that some 313's don't have the ///M badge? Sorry, a bit out of the topic. Is it rep/authentic thing?

Nope - the early BMW Performance ones have "BMW Performance" written on them in one of the spoke gaps, the ones fitted to the Performance edition cars (or Sport Plus or whatever they were called) don't have the writing but instead have the little M badge near the bolt holes.
The 313s on my 1 series are the earlier set.

Worry over - there are places that do custom sizes!
