BMW center cap

I've been Googling for this, but not much success so far...

Has anyone ordered BMW center caps for non-BMW wheels?
If so, where did you find them?

I've never purchased wheels before, but I'm guessing there's no standard size (diameter) for wheels with a center cap.

Has anyone successfully removed the cap from a non-BMW wheel and installed a BMW cap, to make the wheel look like good fake BMW wheel?

ebay actually has a pretty large selection of BMW caps as well. Sorry I don't know the answer to you question regarding putting BMW caps on another car. Why would you want to do that?

Yes, eBay! The thing is (psst) I was posting while at work and ebay.com is blocked there... so only now at night I got to check eBay.

What I said is that I need another set of wheels/winter tires for my E92 335i and I'm comparing expensive BMW OEM wheels with other cheap wheels out there. If I buy non BMW wheels, I'd like to fake them with the BMW cap... I'm sure the aficcionados that post here would know it's not a BMW wheel, since you guys probably have a photographic memory of all things BMW, but most people shouldn't be able to tell.

Ahh...gotcha. I actually just bought some carbon fiber caps from ebay yesterday. You don't need to go that far, but they had tons of others available.

I saw that being sold on ebay as well. Sorry I didn't save the seller name/store, but if you search through ebay motors I'm sure you'd be able to find it.
