I'll bump this thread. Still looking. No reply from the WI salvage yard, unfortunately.

^^^^ Looks very good! I'd be interested in 1, or maybe 4 to go all around, of these.

Wow. Glad I got a set of turbine covers from the previous owner with my car. They're just sitting in my garage. I'm running the throwing stars on my summers and a set of BBS style 5s on the winters

Looking good! I was wondering if you could 3D print them. How are yours made?
Original Bmw cap machined smaller (this one too small). Needs mounting to figure out.

3D is possible if some one draws it first. And need 3D printer that makes cheap parts, my friend only have access to machine that is very expensive to use.

I've got some early magnesium centres, I can try to measure them for you if that would help.

The early centre caps were magnesium alloy like the rest of the covers, at some point they were changed to plastic.

Since i could not find caps i started to make them. Here is the first prototype from the inner spring holder.
Material is a aluminium polymer composite. I will make the other parts this week.
Cheers.
