Also, I know I keep my worse wheels in the rear where I don't feel a shimmy...one day I'll replace them...probably with another car on top!
Problem solved

The part is 51132695281, unfortunately this is for the entire set of trim since you can't buy the rear piece individually.

Are you replacing it because the clips are broken? Because this happened to me and I just glued it, it was way cheaper and won't break again now.

Anyone know if there's a difference between the M3 cloth sun visors and the ZHP cloth sun visors? Checked out ECS Tuning which didn't help at all.

RealOEM has the same PN across the M3 and ZHP

What's the widest wheel that can fit on a non-M with no spacers or rubbing? 9"?

Without modification, it depends on if coupe or sedan and if lowered or not. It's basically 255 or 265 if you jump leaps and bounds to make that work

Turner has a good guide on this, scroll towards the bottom

https://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-wheel_guide

as an FYI, if your requirement is no spacers, you'll need to get the offset perfect. I have 8.5" style 68's up front and I added a 5mm spacer to have a more comfortable strut clearance.

You could probably fit a 9" wheel on the front if you ran a 245 tire, although its going to depend a lot on the suspension on the car too.

I don't plan on slamming the car or lowering it much more than stock OEM sport suspension. As for wheels I'm looking at Apex Arc 8s

go with the new 18x9 ET 30 if you're looking for something aggressive. may require some work but having the concave in the front is rewarding and not many non M's do it

Well the nice thing is, you can use Turner's guide on what and aggressive fitment is, and what a mild fitment is and plug those into http://www.willtheyfit.com/ and then plug in APEX's specs and find which width and offset you like.

Apex could also help you out i bet
