Any pics of ZCPs with BBS center caps???

Hey guys,

It says it all in the title, does anyone have pics of the OEM 359Ms with BBS center caps? I've done a forum search, as well as a google search. I can only seem to find pics of E46 M3s. I was thinking of possibly having this done to my 359s. I'm installing a lot of CF parts, and it would be nice to have the CF BBS center caps to match since the rims are made by BBS.

Also, since we're on the topic, does anyone think it's kinda cheesy to put the BBS caps on instead of the BMW ones?

Thanks!

E46 M3 ZCP with BBS caps
Looks pretty badass to me. Not sure about E92 ZCP wheels though.

If you like it and it is possible then go for it. Asking people from diff backrounds, ages and countries for opinions on style issues will just make you dizzy.

I've seen this car on the net before, it was actually the car that made me look into this further. I'm sitting on the fence with this mod, but if I saw an E92 M3 with center caps that look that good, I think I would definitely consider putting them on.

There has to be some people out there that have done this. Are there really no pics?

Personnely I always prefer to have a rim that look stock on my cars and if possible , with a center cap of the brand of the car , I just think it look better and more valuable when it look OEM instead of aftermarket ! I did exactly the opposite of what you want to do with my TT back in the days , I putted Audi center caps on my BBS CH and to my eyes it looked better ! Also IMO ,carbon fiber just to have carbon fiber can easily look cheesy , if you don't save weight , no need for carbon fiber !

Different size caps but they make Rep BBS caps in different colors that are the exact size of OEM BMW caps.

Here is a PChop

Wow, nice job! That actually looks great! Is it possible for you to do the same with the carbon fiber center cap? The red looks better than I thought with those calipers.

funny...i think it looks cheesy, based on the photoshop (which probably looks accurate). To each their own!

I'd be interested in looking at the BBS caps also for my oem 18 inch rims. Keep the thread updated with your findings. Size used, where purschased, and of course pics.

If this is the case I see no issue in running BBS Center caps if someone wants to. I would agree that its cheesy if this wasn't the case.
