Help with Lug Bolt Key
 
I need a key in order to remove my wheel lugs. I bought the car 3 months ago and there is NOT one on the car. Where can I purchase one of these. The car is a 2008 550i Sport Package

those look like spline drive "tuner" lugs. 6 point, fairly common, i do not believe thats an actual "lock'
usually used on rims where there isnt enough space to fit a hex head lug. my winter rims use those lugs.

my guess would be the person who owned it before had a winter wheel set that came with those lugs and used them instead of the bmw lugs-- did you check the trunk/glovebox for something like this:

you can probably find it locally-- i recommend buying more than one, when used with impact tools, they sometimes split.

Thanks for your Help. Ive checked everywhere .. I'm also missing the Wallet key adapter but that's another story! :eek: That seems to be what i need I will order it right now. If i was to get a flat .. i wouldn't be able to replace the tire.

The car lived in California , then NYC sold on a auction and Now I own it.
