Lock nuts and car covers
I just got a 2002 M3, its only got 23k on it and it is showroom floor clean, an older couple owned it, one of there 9 cars, 6 of which were classic oldsmobile 442's. On my old BMW I had locknuts on the wheels, but my M3 does not. I would like to order a good set, but not break the bank, any suggestions on which kind and where to get them?

Also, I would like to get a waterproof and mold proof car cover, i know Noah and California covers are very good, but a bit on the pricey side. Aside from those two, any other solid covers that are going to hold up for a while?

Doesn't BMW sell lock nuts for the wheels? List around $42 but can buy for $30?

I have a California Weather shield and yes a bit pricey but I love it. You know what they say, sometimes you get what you pay for after all you do have an M3. As for the wheel locks, I would go OEM from either BMW dealer, Tischer or Turner.

I was looking at jlevis, and they have the RAD ones for around $50, anyone know anything about those?

I wouldn't bother using a car cover if the car is going to be a daily driver. You'll put scratches putting it on taking it off. Car covers are for cars that's going to be sitting for awhile.
