Hi,

Apart from a BMW dealer, anyway of ordering a replacement locking wheel nut? As I've lost mine!

If it is a BMW origional locknut Key then a word with the stellers parts should be able to get the current one off
They have a set of numbered Key nuts and once you have found the one that fits can order one to sell you
However it was more convienient and not a lot different in price to buy a new replacement set of 4 with key
A lot less stressfull than driving and not being able to change a wheel if you get a flat

Or if you're using the BMW ones then just buy a normal wheel bolt as they are probably about as secure as the BMW ones... ;)

Personally I'd strongly advise you to spend £35 or so on some decent ones such as McGard ultras or similar.

I bust my key (dont ask) so had to make a tool to remove my wheels - after several hours and much trial and error I had managed to remove two locknuts but the other two would not budge. Went to dealer next day and used their set of keys to remove my remaining lock nuts and then bought a new set of 4 with key - £19.

The central pin on the lock nuts make them especially difficult to remove without the key as compared to the locknuts on my Skoda Fabia VRS, which could be removed by hammering a bolt of the right size into the nut (no central pin to prevent this) and then undoing with a socket.
