search this forum and you will see the ebay special link to a cheap full set of badges a member here found, the wheel caps fit perfectly once you cut the tabs and plastic insert off, then use some thick double sided tape, its a perfect fit

If you can find 68mm wheel center badges that are the same as the ones in this post it's a very easy mod!

Test fit. It’s not fitted in any on the 4 bolt points. There is an installation query we are waiting to resolve.

[QUOTE=cannockwolf;30273556]and so it begins, no clips damaged taking the panels off



Your car mods is huge inspiration for my 2023 230i xdrive! Especially those quad exhaust tips (I hate that fake cheap look of stock tips on 240i - on 230i it's even better with a single rounded tip)

I have a quick question while I'm waiting my new M-trim bumper kit. Was it super easy DIY putting on these quad tips? Meaning the original pipe was in the center and no any cutting/moving/adjustment were required for this upgrade?

I couldn't find any examples of similar jobs on 230i and would love to get your opinion. The picture below is of my original single pipe exhaust

Perfect, will check them out! Hopefully those “special orders” I placed via local dealership and online won’t take 2+ months of waiting
