Looking for a complete set of turbine covers for a non stag. setup.


Thanks in advance.
I have a full set I've had for 15-20 years, in a box.
Previous owner polished them so the paint was removed from the outside surface of the turbines & caps. Aluminum caps!!
Must have been spectacular before they got tarnished. Could be repolished or repainted
No major flaws.
Not sure what I want for these.
Interested? Make offer, I can send you some photos. I'm in California
I also have other sets but I'm not going to separate them from the wheels.

Ok, I got to the storage unit and grabbed the Turbines and took inventory.
Good news, there is a lot there to include a sets of 706 (8x17, ET:22mm) wheels with MXX3 tires without turbines in excellent condition, I'd be willing to part with.
I'm keeping everything else as spares as I have 2 cars that run Turbines and I want to have an abundance of spares!!.
Bad news, the turbines that were polished do not include the inner turbine fins.😢.
I cleaned them up and used Semichrome to take some of the tarnish off part of the covers and caps to check the condition and IMHO they are a candidate to be re-polish & cleared or re-finishing. The value in these covers beyond the 2-Right & 2-Left outer covers - with minimal nicks is the aluminum caps.
PM me with an offer if interested in the covers or a set of 4 rims.

Turbine Hub Caps - Plastic version.
These are the BMW M5 Original for the Turbines.
I have 3 available. They are not perfect but they are in very good condition, no broken tabs, see attached images for condition.
Want more photos just PM me.
They've been in storage for over 20 years.
$150 each plus shipping. You pick 1, 2 $150 each or take all 3 for $400.
3D Printed version selling for $99 each on eBay.
Real Deal for $150 is a bargain.

Rob:

Sorry. This wasn't your thread and looked like an open invitation from BigDog to sell to the board. Was not aware that you had an exclusive on these. Consider my offer for 1 as a backup to your deal.

Regards,
Mike
