Where to get M3 decal for VB3 wheels

Does anyone know where to get the tiny little M3 emblem (sticker) that goes in that rectangular spot near the hub of the VB3 wheel? (similar to where the M3 emblem is on the stock wheels). Does anyone make an aftermarket one I could buy?

eBay versions will be a bit larger than OEM, you will need to visit a BMW parts counter for the badges.

Ricfutres - sorry, your link didn't work. Where did you find these within BavAuto's site? I found BMW valve stem covers...but nothing for the wheels.

Its not the look we're worried about, it's the outer dimensions of the decal. The eBay versions are about 10% larger than OEM.

So, if you are saying they are 10% larger than OEM, will they fit in that little rectangular cutout? Or, will they look goofy with the stickers protruding outside of the rectangle?

No - that's the reason OEM badges are needed, they are the correct size for the opening on the wheel.

BavAuto is great for OEM parts like that, but I think you might be able to save a few bucks with a CCA discount at the dealer.

The part number is 36112228660.

I got a set of M emblems from uhmshitza and they are probably the same as the ebay ones. Note in the pic that they are actually quite a bit larger (and lower quality) than the oem ones (at the very top and bottom as pictured) and wont fit inside the VMR indent.

Also, the model # on the centercap sticker as pictured is also wrong. Its too large by exactly 8mm and wont fit inside the VMR cap - its actually the same diameter as the widest part of the VMR cap.


Here is a pic of the rounder differences in size... maybe someone will benefit from this..

Its hard to see, but the above pictured bmw roundel is underneath the cap here - note similar size to cap.


The roundel is face-down pictured here.. top is the correct size roundel from the VMR cap.


Unfortunately, I dont know the model # of the correct bmw roundel sticker. I just gave up and used my oem center caps, which fit fine in there..

Subw00er, how much you pay for the OEM badges (for the slot on wheels)?
