Wheel Lock Mystery

Bought an e91 last month with wheel locks. Realized last week that the key is not in the car, and dealership I bought it from cannot find the key.

Before I hammer sockets onto these locks, or visit a few tire installers, Iím hoping someone will have an idea as to the brand or type of wheel lock on my car. Several searches of this site have turned up nothing similar.

The locks appear to be identical, so Iíve got 20 mystery locks to deal with. All have 6 splines that extend to the top of the bolt head. Many of the splined aftermarket locks have splines that stop before the top of the bolt head, so this might be a clue.

Opinions and insults welcome. God knows I deserve the later for not checking before I bought the car.
