E92 ZCP wheels are not 100% confirmed to be made by BBS.
E46 ZCP wheels are indeed made from BBS but it is confirmed by the stamping on the rim. The E92 ZCP wheel has no such marking.

More than likely, it's to be different which for the most part I am ok with. Same reason people put hideous wings on or paint parts ungodly colors.

I think Roman@ESS has BBS centercaps on his ZCP wheels. Personally I wouldn't do it. I like the BMW Roundel...don't understand why people get the blackout Roundels either...

you indeed are wrong sir.

The 359M is made by BBS and does have a BBS Stamp, I'll take pics of it when I get home.

I decided to leave my BMW center caps on. Yours don't look too bad though, makes the rim look aftermarket.

If they are indeed BBS wheels then there is no reason not to put them on. It is not cheesy if they are made by BBS. I own Volks and would put Volk center caps on. Who wouldn't? Ok well sometimes I wouldn't run them.

With so many people doing tacky modifications to their M3s I would've never expected people to say putting BBS caps on BBS wheels is cheesy. M3post you never cease to surprise me!
