Unhappy lost the wheel lock anyone have a spare?

When I was fixing my sway bar mounting bracket (the original rotted and broke, I hand fabbed a temp bracket until I could get a new one) it was late at night and stupid me I must have left the adapter to remove the lock nuts in the last wheel I torqued it so it's obviously gone now lol

Does anyone have a spare that they can do without?

looks like this as you all know

Do you know what number your key is? I lost mine before and went to BMW and they told me there are around 40 different keys. Luckily I found my lost one before I had to resort to other methods to try and get it off.

Umm yea, all the keys aren't the same. Kinda the reason they call them Wheel locks, they would be worthless if they were all the same.

I know they aren't all the same but I know they aren't all different. I'm just assuming that because they are on an e30 some other e30 guys might have the same lock. Eurostyle probably has a box of locks in his shop from parted out cars. I'll give him a shout. If not I'll go to the dealership to get one.

They are still worthless...You can just go and buy all of them and get the rims you want! lol Bottom line, if someone wants your rims, they will get them.
