Default New AC Schnitzer parts for my BMW e39.... And a question.

Picked these up from a guy in Canada for my ACS Type III's, to turn the into Type II's. Pretty neat.









HOWEVER. PROBLEMS, COMPLICATIONS, MAJOR FUCKING DISCREPANCIES.

They were made for the single piece Type III's, not the two piece version. So they don't quite fit. I have a few options. I can resell them, run them as-is in their poor fitment, or take them someplace to get the plastic shaved down so they fit (and possibly ruin them in the process). Whaddu think?



So for now, they'll go in the corner with the pile of other crap I don't have time/money to install on my car yet.



(Because I just bought this.)

FWIW, pic of the car it's going on.

I wonder how many other people have plates like that.

Oh and I like the wheels without the caps, personally.

re-sell them beacsue if a shop does fuck up and ruins the shape you probaly couldnt sell them after that.

the wheels do look nice with them in but still by themselves wheels still look dope.

Nah, I did my homework after and ACS only made these for the single piece version. So if I did get them made to fit, they'd be the only ones like it. Kinda neat.
