Key to the wheel lock?

The e90 m3 doesn't come with a key to the wheel lock? Does the dealer stock them and do I need to provide them my vin#?

Did you check by the tools in the trunk? That's where the key is stored.

In my tool kit box there's only a tow hook and a screw driver.

I have two sets of locking lugs. The keys don't fit each others lugs. I don't know how many different variations there are. The key should be stored in the tool kit furthest away from the tow hook. I guess you already searched the rest of the car?

If the dealer installed the locking lugs like they did mine, go back to them & tell them you need it. They may have to order a few sets before they find the right key, or take them off another way & give you a new set. GL -

You need a card that came with the locks to know the key number. It's also stamped on the key itself, but if you don't have it, or didn't write it down, dealer is your last resort (if they installed the set). There's a thread about the number of keys, if you want to search. If I remember correctly, there're 13 different keys.

Another thing you can do is start a thread on your local forum and ask all local owners to let you try their keys, and see if one of those works. And yes, I'm assuming you already looked everywhere in your car . Good luck.
