    I figured that was pretty steep. I suppose it's just poor wording on the Bimmerworld page, but I just couldn't find on their site where it said it was for the set. The title lists it as:

    BMW Wheel Center Cap, Fixed/Non-Spinning (36122455269)

    Self-righting BMW center caps that does not rotate with the wheel. Genuine BMW part #36122455269.

    Qty - 1

    A little more exploring and I see that other sites like ECS Tuning describe it correctly(more clearly) as:

    Floating Center Cap - Set

    JohnVA - It was just about a year ago that I replaced all my tired center caps with the newer versions 36136783536 with the chrome circumference for $14.14 each from FCP based on your help! Can't change em again! They've only got 3K miles on em!

    Bimmerworld page states:
    This new style BMW center cap uses an internal counter-weight to balance itself and always remain upright even as the wheel spins. It remains "fixed" in place with the "BMW" at the top instead of spinning with the wheel. The emblem cannot be perfectly upright all the time and will shift around a bit but will settle into a steady position.

    These factory BMW center caps will work on most aftermarket wheels as well! As long as the wheel uses the standard 72.6mm center bore (like many aftermarket wheels, like our TA16, APEX, and many others) these wheel caps can give your aftermarket wheels a very factory look.

    The counter-weight makes the new cap 7mm thicker so you must have this extra space available behind your existing cap. We have removed known incompatible applications from the list below (E36, E46, etc) but other exceptions may exist.

    Sold only as a set of 4.

    Apparently they make these in two sizes - I bought some off eBay from ‘mybimmerparts’ and they fit my style 197’s. The listing shows the same part number and mentions a 65mm diameter - which should be the same center cap as the 135, but there may be a depth issue since the hub seems thicker for the 197 vs the 135 (you can kidof see how the 197 curves out at the center cap while the 135 design is flatter)

    Interesting, so Pre-E90ís have 65MM and Post-E90 have 65mm+?

    These look awesome
