Default ///M wheel logo dimensions

Sent my wheels off for refurb today and realised I forgot to measure the dimensions of the little rectangular ///M badges that sit on the wheel, as they will obviously need replacing when I get them back.

As I'd like to order them in now so I have them in advance, would someone mind measuring theirs and posting up the dimensions here so I buy the right set?

Thanks!

Part number will be in realoem , dealer will sell you a set of genuine ones that will be correct unlike the fake ebay parts for a fraction of the cost and quality

Thanks but the fake ones I bought for my steering wheel were of perfect quality and £2 for 4 instead of £4 each! That's 1/8th of the price & delivered to my door... I know that's being lazy but the saving is worthwhile anyway - and they're easily replaced if they fail.

Can anyone help with the dimensions please?

I bought cheap ones of eBay for my refurbished wheels and they didn't fit after the refurb - slightly too big

I’ve found that a lot ebay badges are great quality wheelcaps, bonnet etc. The oe badges were always gone after a few years, and side badges on the m gills were fading after a few months

Agreed. The wheel caps I took off the wheels were non-genuine. I have the receipt for them - they were bought in 2011 - they still look like new 9 years later and they only cost £8 for the set.

Unlike £50+ for a set of genuine ones which would likely be faded by now...

Dave, I'll have a look in the garage as when I got my wheels refurbed, the guy there gave a slack hand full so if I find them I'll let you know. Then you can send me a PM and I'll send you some. I did put a very small dab of super glue on them to ensure they didn't drop off. Ones I got from eBay in the past did drop off.
It will be tomorrow before I get a chance to look in garage as it chucking it down here on Teesside.
