Oh wow. It looks like people are now making plastic ones. Just search ebay:
"Bbs Mahle center"

First off all Matty has to check the diameter of the rims bore!

These rings are tricky! The have room for a 75 mm OEM centercap, but the diameter of the bore could be smaller! Been there, done that!

Thank you for all this help!

I saw those plastic ones, but seems like all of them were only 60mm which is definitely too small. Then I saw this one:

4x bbs mahle wheel centre hub caps e50 e30 e76 bmw mercedes oldschool ra msw

That is labeled as 71mm which ought to be the correct size. I think I will probably give those a try if nothing else turns up by the end of the weekend.
