Locks: just fit an alarm with central locking function.

Radio: Measure the resistance across the speakers to see if they still function, as a first go. I'd go original. You can maybe get a kit to provide an iPod aux input function, do a google.

Foam: It's louder without the foam, that's all. Be sure the paint is still intact if you peel it off.

Hubcaps: You mean the small centres for 14" bottle top alloys?

Just google the part number.

Foglights: you don't need them, they do very little to improve lighting. Get Osram Nightbreaker headlight bulbs instead, same wattage but much brighter and legal.

Throttle body cover, you don't need it. Purely cosmetic.

They're easily switched. You don't even have to remove the wheel.

These are all really just pop off/pop on replacements. Have you registered over at M3forum? Very useful info there!

I bought an aftermarket set on Amazon for $25. They look great in my opinion: https://imgur.com/a/30q9kqG

This is the set I bought, but of course Amazon is saying they are currently unavailable: Tesla Model 3, S & X Aero Wheel Cap Kit White (4 Hub Center Cap + 20 Lug Nut Cover) (grey) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07W3WXP2K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_C9mGDb8DWQY0V

There are other sets for similar prices on Amazon however.

Where are you finding 36132225376 for $53?

15" et24 style 5's weren't available in US, except for the IX spec ones with the much higher offset. see the E30 wheel charts: https://bimmertips.com/oem-bmw-e30-wheel-options-specs/

Note they have different dimensions. the 15" center cap is part number 09.24.028, which is 6.73 inches (or 171mm). The 14" center cap is 151mm, or 6 inches.

​

Unless you are looking at the 15" center cap for the 5 series, which does not fit, and has a different part number, even though it looks the same: https://www.amazon.com/BMW-Genuine-Wheel-Center-1988/dp/B000NP9DS2/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=bbs+bmw+e30+center+cap&qid=1563042818&s=gateway&sr=8-5

​

Here's the 15" basketweave center cap part numbers that I've recorded:

Part number 0924028 for the center cap, it's 171mm (6.73 inches)

Part number 09.23.114 for the center twist hex cap

Part number 09.24.029 center logo for wheel OR 09.24.030. BMW p/n 36-13-2-225-190-m9 70mm diameter wheel center cap

Part number 09.23.113 a different version of the 15" center cap that seems to fit

Depending on your neighborhood, they may get stolen if you don't keep it garaged. Got a 2015 in October and they were gone by January. Toyota makes center caps that are pretty nice and will plug the holes in the rims. Four of these and you're good.

u/LordOlly · 4 pointsr/whatisthisthing

The clear layer is to protect the center cap from corrosion/damage. its probably some sort of clear lacquer, so it defiantly shouldn't be coming off. what you'll have to do is remove the wheel, tap the center cap out from the other side, replace with these and replace the wheel.

u/Zhabba_Zheeba · 1 pointr/GolfGTI

That's not really what I'm going for here. I'm looking for something like this:

https://www.amazon.com/MonboAuto-Center-Decals-Stickers-Volkswagen/dp/B07GD2FJ42?th=1

But instead of silver, something in bronze or gold. It's looking like I will probably just have to use the center caps that come with the wheels.

Here you go. Seems to have really good reviews. Enseng Set of 4 - BMW Wheel Center Caps Emblem, 68mm BMW Rim Center Hub Caps for All Models with BMW Wheels Logo Blue & White Color https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LB4RH8F/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_kjQ7CbA5JBCH4

u/VoltaicGlitch · 4 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Date code on the cap says sept. 2004. And the part number matches 2005-2008 F150s. So I would guess the year at a 2005.

Here is a picture of one. Look for the badge on the fender just in front of the doors should be easier to spot in a crowded school lot.

You know what to do OP. Embrace the orange and get some raised (orange) centercaps

u/justinedd · 5 pointsr/GolfGTI

The Neuspeed RSe10 website (linked here) says that late model VW and Audi center caps will not fit, and that they recommend buying a different model from VW. Specifically VW cap part #: 3B7 601 171. I found 3 quick links, one from Amazon(priced per), one from ECS Tuning(priced per), and one from UPS Motorsports(priced for a set of 4).

u/Ftpini · 4 pointsr/GolfGTI

Wheels are nice, but I'd look into getting proper wheel caps. The mismatch is just odd. I can't say for sure exactly what size you need, but I'm sure you could get some that match or are a custom unbranded design.

u/Tarquinn · 4 pointsr/Whatisthis

Rota Wheels. Amazon link to center caps as an example. You didn't show your wheel, so I couldn't look for it.
