Need help finding BBS centercaps for ZCP wheels

Hello Everyone,
I am trying to find a set of BBS centercaps that will fit the OEM ZCP wheels. I've attached a picture of one of the centercaps from car. I think this picture will help explain what I'm looking for. It appears that the center cap itself is only a small emblem, 64mm in diameter. Does anyone have any idea where I can find such BBS caps, preferably in red??

Any help would be appreciated.

To be honest, the reason you cant find them is because it looks ****in stupid.. not to be harsh.. just keeping it real.

Beamn46,
I think your words are quite harsh. They're BBS wheels -literally - and I'm proposing to put a BBS decal instead of a BMW roundel on it. I really don't see the big deal.

This looks stupid? Right...

Jun's IB M3 with high polish BBS caps.



Relax there buddy. OEM zcps are BBS wheels so that is "keeping it real", not to be harsh.

OP, I responded to you on m3f with the website you can buy the caps from...

Yeah dude that was kind of harsh yourself, I don't see whats wrong with putting bbs caps on ZCP wheels that are made and stamped by bbs. Since your car has a csl trunk and it's not oem, do you consider that stupid too?

I have the opposite wish. I have BBS RK caps and I want to put BMW logos on them. I think there are some stick on BMW logos that fit, but I am not sure. If anyone knows of a product that will do this neatly, please let me know.

The BBS caps that I have do not separate like the BMW caps do. There is a newer BMW center cap that is slightly different, eliminates the gray plastic trim on the outer part of the cap, and of course, there is a price increase.

These BBS caps are 70mm, but look like they snap into a smaller wheel center of about 2 inches or 51 mm. They are one piece.

Not to wake up a super old thread but does this same rule apply to all BBS OEM wheels? More specifically style 197? and where is this site that I can order from? I've been searching everywhere but haven't came up with any good results.
