Thumbs up Avant Garde M310 matte black on my Glacier Silver 335i

Check out the new shoes I just installed on my 335i!

I ordered this wheel kit from Mod Bargains.com and was well taken care of by Alan Wei - senior modification expert who is also BMW driver. He made the whole process super easy and provided great suggestions when placing my order. Let me know what you think of my pics, I had to wait for the powerful AZ sun to drop.

technical details:
Avant Garde M310 matte black
19 x 8.5 ET-35 (front) and 19 x 9.5 ET-43 (rear)
Falken 453 tires

245/40/19 (front) and 275/35/19 (rear) <-- mega wide
Beru/Huff Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors

That is the slickest looking silver F30 I've ever seen...this is coming from a guy that cannot stand silver, gold, beige, or tan cars. Great job!

This is a fairly easy question but I am wondering where I can get the center caps? I am purchasing aftermarket for Winter Wheels but I would still like the BMW center caps? I was going to order them through the dealer.

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Use the caps on your current wheels.

Most wheel places will give you caps with BMW logos. If not, there's always...

not a stupid question, as Sedan_clan said ebay is the answer..but don't buy the Chinese knock-off decals. there are OEM BMW decals that sell for about $5-$8 a sticker, very high quality cupped and thick decal. i just stuck the decal on top of the Avant Garde cap. here are the dimensions for Avant Garde center caps:

63mm Prong (most important for fitment on the wheel)
65mm emblem
68mm overall

good luck!

Not true. I used the caps from the gloss black OEM 403M's that I sold on my current Avant Garde 355M's. Maybe certain AG's won't accept the OEM cap, but I am 100% certain that the 355M's do.
