Not sure on style, for some reason basket weave comes to mind (and no center caps on them)... size is 15"

Did you tape off the bmw logo to make it stand out? How time consuming was that? And did u adjust your valves? Im wondering how hard that will be.

Thanks!

Nice Car

No, I only taped off where the oil cap would go on, and where another hose attached. I spray painted the whole thing, then used some sand paper on the upraising to bring out the aluminum.
