Dumb question, but do the wheel locks come with the car or do I have to purchase those separately?

The OEM BMW ones are Mcguard Ultimates that have the extra rotating ring preventing someone using a undersize socket to undo teh lock

Very nice.

Just watch out for cheap wheel places using a air impact wrench to tighten them instead of a proper hand wrench. A impact wrench will damage the "key" socket

I dont believe the USA gets them standard.
many other countries get them standard.

They are available from any dealer
Make sure you tell them its for the F30 as the F30 uses M14 size bolts and not the old BMW standard M12 bolts.

Now I know the F30 is a new car, so I keep getting conflicting confirmation on what specific wheel locks fit. I'm pretty sure it is the M14 1.25. Are there any other numbers or specs I need to know? I'd like to get the McGard Ultra ones with the spinning top in black. Anyone found them for less than $60?

Getting confused by web pictures... search through the ETK can confirm the correct part for OEM Wheel Lock is: 36136792851...

For the same part number, Amazon is showing pictures of different wheel lock, not sure which one to trust esp I'm going to have this ship to Asia!

BMW Wheel Lock

Have a set on my F25 and based on the documentation can be used on F30 also. See attached documentation below. I do not know that cost since it came with the X3.

It shows the torque for the M14 bolt size to be 103 ft-lbs (140 NM) and not the 88 ft-lbs (120 NM) seen in other posts. Can any one confirm this is correct?

My dealer installs the OEM locks on every car they sell.
