Shoot! Lost a license plate frame screw cover!!

Look, I realize this may not be a big deal to some of you. And in reality it's not a big deal to me either.....but it's annoying.

I have somehow lost one of the covers for my license plate screws:


Does anyone know where I can find a new one? I really don't want to drop $40 on a new plate frame just to get this one small piece.

Thanks, and again -- -I realize how ridiculous this may sound, lol.

home depot or any home improvement stores should have screw covers. You should go with the cherry veneer finish.

Hey that's cool that your state plate colors are M colors. Our Georgia plates are partially orange and green. Gross. I'm moving to Washington!

Happened to me about two weeks ago. Went to the parts department at the dealer and they just gave the little box with 4 of them for free. Give it a try!

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.
